Sangil Kwon: Phase in Superfluids and Spontaneously Broken Gauge Symmetry
It is often said that superfluids (including superconductors) can be described by a macroscopic quantum wavefunction and their phase transition can be understood based on the concept of spontaneously broken gauge symmetry. This statement is not, however, trivial at all. In this seminar, I will discuss some conceptual problems that stem from applying the concept of spontaneously broken gauge symmetry to superfluids.

Starting any company has a lot of ups and downs. There are many days you wish you didn't start it, but there are many days you can't wait to get to work because you are so excited. There are lots of days you laugh and some days you feel like crawling up into a ball.
