In many-body systems, the complex interplay between the particles that make up the system can lead to unexpected collective behaviour, giving rise to exotic phases of matter. Well-known examples of such exotic phases are superfluids, superconductors and spin liquids. Ido Niesen focuses on a subcategory of strongly correlated systems: insulating solids for which the dynamical particles – the electrons – are pinned to a background lattice, and the remaining degrees of freedom are their quantum mechanical spins.
