On the fortieth anniversary of the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless idea (BKT), this informative quantity appears again at a few of the advancements and achievements and sundry physics purposes which ensued from the gorgeous BKT vortex-unbinding seminal idea.

During the final 4 many years, BKT idea, that's undeniably probably the most very important advancements in condensed topic and theoretical physics of the second one half the 20th century, has elevated broadly. it's been used and prolonged from many alternative theoretical and experimental views. New and unforeseen beneficial properties were exposed from the BKT thought. due to the fact its inception, except purposes in condensed topic physics, the speculation has been actively utilized in different branches of physics, equivalent to excessive strength physics, atomic physics, nuclear physics, statistical physics, nonlinear structures, and so on. This makes the idea an essential subject for all who're considering physics.

An foreign crew of specialists, every one of whom has left his mark at the advancements of this extraordinary thought and experimental functions, give a contribution either old essays and extra targeted present technical and experimental money owed to this quantity. those articles spotlight the hot discoveries from the respective authors' perspectives.

This designated quantity celebrates the impression over 4 a long time of the BKT thought on sleek physics. as well as the historic viewpoint supplied by means of Kosterlitz and Thouless's review, the quantity presents a entire description of experimental and theoretical purposes and extensions of the BKT theory.
