March Meeting: Oh, Lucas!

Dear Diary,

A student from Paola Gori-Giorgi gave a talk.  At the end, he showed Lucas!

Kieron gave me a tiny assignment that wound up not working out, but I had to sort through this strictly correlated electron business some weeks ago.  If one takes the the electron-electron potential's coupling to infinity (and tunes the external potential to keep the density the same), then you get very interesting physics where electrons are localized.  It's tough to solve for the co-motion functions that tell you how the electrons move around, though.

Doing so, you can address strongly correlated materials.

Anyway, Lucas showed up.  I saw it.  That was cool.
