Adrianus M M Pruisken
University of Amsterdam, Netherlands
Adrianus M M Pruisken has contributed to a variety of topics such as quantum critical phenomena, Anderson localization and interaction effects, the Coulomb blockade, the single electron transistors as well as quantum anti-ferromagnets in low dimensions. His microscopic theory of the quantum Hall effect has played a central role in motivating a stream of experimental research on the so-called “plateau-transitions”. His research interests cover the topological and non-perturbative aspects of condensed matter systems, statistical mechanics and quantum field theory.
