The goal of this year’s school is to provide students with an overview of the state-of-the art in the field of orbital physics in strongly correlated systems and the techniques used to investigate them. After introducing fundamental models and effects, lectures will focus on these effects in real materials, with introductions to crystallography and symmetries, methods for building minimal tight-binding Hamiltonians, the Jahn-Teller effect, and Coulomb-enhancements of the Jahn-Teller effect. Advanced lectures will address orbital ordering, orbital liquids and Kitaev materials, as well as theoretical approaches, from self-interaction corrected density functionals to dynamical mean-field theory and beyond. Experimental lectures will present probes of spin, orbital, and charge degrees of freedom, techniques to image orbitals and orbital ordering, as well as orbitally-controlled transport phenomena.
