Luttinger liquids : Transport through quantum wires

Sumathi Rao, Harish Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad, India/Perimeter Institute, Waterloo, Ontario

 I will give an introduction to the physics of one-dimensional quantum wires generically described by Luttinger liquid theory. I will then focus on transport through junctions (including superconducting junctions) of two or more quantum wires. Finally, I will end with a brief mention of pending problems in the quasi-one dimensional world.
