Materials on the Central-Peripheral Dichotomy

Lectures and Presentations

The motivation and the content of the Central-Peripheral dichotomy are in the first and second half of this talk in July 2018 , which is best viewed together with the original slides (here is another version (in Sep. 2018) of this lecture, it has a better video quality and is adapted to an audience of largely physicists/theorists at KITP UC Santa Barbara.) Some more recent lectures include:
