Speaker: Mikhail Goykhman (U Chicago)
Subject: Large-N three-dimensional matter and Landau Fermi liquid

One of the typical low-temperature phases of fermionic matter is
described by a phenomenological theory called Landau Fermi liquid.
I will be discussing the first proposed exactly solvable
microscopic theories which behave at low energies as Landau Fermi liquid.
These theories are the large-N three-dimensional Chern-Simons-fermion
and Thirring models. I will demonstrate how the three-dimensional
large-N power allows one to obtain exact results, at any value of the coupling
constant, for a number of interesting observables.
