Le Centre de Physique Théorique (CPHT) réunit des chercheurs dont les activités couvrent un large spectre de la Physique, tant dans ses aspects fondamentaux qu'appliqués.
Le CPHT est une unité mixte de recherche (UMR 7644) du Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) et de l’Ecole polytechnique. Au niveau du CNRS, il est rattaché à l’Institut de physique. Le CPHT a également un partenariat avec le Collège de France.
Le CPHT, dirigé par Jean-René Chazottes, directeur de Recherche au CNRS, est implanté sur le campus de l’Ecole Polytechnique à Palaiseau, dans le bâtiment 6 et dans l'aile 0 du bâtiment 5. Le secrétariat se situe dans le Bâtiment 6, bureaux 06.1046 et 06.1045.

The publication of Alexander Friedmann's seminal papers in 1922 marked the birth of modern cosmology. In order to celebrate its centenary, the Friedmann Endowment will fund various scientific actions over the next few years, covering the wide range of themes associated with cosmology, at École Polytechnique and partner institutions, in collaboration with the Foundation of Ecole Polytechnique. The Friedmann Colloquium will be a flag activity, organized by the Physics Department and aimed at a general audience of scientists and science students.

For its first edition of the Friedmann Colloquium, Dr. Frank Eisenhauer from the Max Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Munich (Garching) will speak about : THE GALACTIC CENTER BLACK HOLE, THE EFFECTS OF GENERAL RELATIVITY, AND HOW TO OBSERVE THEM

Monday, December 5, 2022 at 6:00 pm in Becquerel Lecture Hall of Ecole polytechnique

About the Alexander Friedmann Endowment
In 1922 Alexander Friedmann (1888-1925) published a seminal paper, which triggered the advent of modern cosmology. In order to celebrate its centenary, the Alexander Friedmann Endowment supports various scientific activities, covering the wide range of subjects associated with cosmology, at Ecole Polytechnique and its partner institutions. Among these activities, the Friedmann Colloquium is a general seminar addressing an audience of scientists and science students.
Scientific committee : Silke Biermann (CPHT), Jean-René Chazottes (CPHT), Mathieu de Naurois (LLR), Marios Petropoulos (CPHT), Sébastien Renaux-Petel (IAP), Yves Sirois (LLR).

Abstract: In so-called "strongly correlated" materials, the strong Coulomb interaction which correlates the movement of electrons at the atomic scale can give rise to outstanding properties at the macroscopic scale. The materials studied in this thesis contain rare-earth elements (like neodymium) which usually exhibit these strong correlation effects. Due to their remarkable properties, rare-earth compounds have numerous technological applications; they are for instance used as high-performance magnets in electric motors. The demand for rare earths is therefore increasing; on the other hand, mining them is difficult, expensive and polluting. Hence, optimizing the properties and composition of rare-earth-based materials can be of great technological, economical and environmental interest. From the point of view of theoretical physics, describing these materials constitutes a real challenge, precisely due to their strongly correlated nature. In this thesis, we develop theoretical approaches to study the magnetic and optical properties of rare-earth compounds, notably the industrially relevant neodymium magnet. These theoretical methods are said to be from "first principles" as they are based on the fundamental laws governing the physics at the atomic level.
