This e-book provides articles written through top specialists surveying numerous significant subfields in Condensed subject Physics and similar sciences. The articles are in line with invited talks offered at a contemporary convention honoring Nobel laureate Philip W. Anderson of Princeton collage, who coined the word "More is diverse" whereas formulating his rivalry that each one fields of physics, certainly all of technological know-how, contain both basic insights. The articles introduce and survey present study in parts which were just about Anderson's pursuits. jointly, they illustrate either the deep effect that Anderson has had during this multifaceted box up to now part century and the growth spawned through his insights. The individuals hide a variety of subject matters below the umbrellas of superconductivity, superfluidity, magnetism, electron localization, strongly interacting digital structures, heavy fermions, and illness and frustration in glass and spin-glass platforms. in addition they describe interdisciplinary parts reminiscent of the technology of olfaction and colour imaginative and prescient, the screening of macroions in electrolytes, scaling and renormalization in cosmology, woodland fires and the unfold of measles, and the research of "NP-complete" difficulties in laptop science.
The articles are authored by way of Philip W. Anderson, consistent with Bak and Kan Chen, G. Baskaran, Juan Carlos Campuzano, Paul Chaikin, John Hopfield, Bernhard Keimer, Scott Kirkpatrick and Bart Selman, Gabriel Kotliar, Patrick Lee, Yoshiteru Maeno, Marc Mezard, Douglas Osheroff et al., H. R. Ott, L. Pietronero et al., T. V. Ramakrishnan, A. Ramirez, Myriam Sarachik, T. Senthil and Matthew P. A. Fisher, B. I. Shklovskii et al., and F. Steglich et al.
