Applied String Theory: Explaining Quantum Matter with Black Holes

How can we explain the mysteries of quantum matter?

Strong interactive electrons exhibit behaviour that remains unexplained by every current physics theory. The best-known example is high-temperature superconducting. Following the revolutionary discovery that the mathematics of string theory and black holes also describes strongly interactive quantum systems, this project aims to explain the mysteries of quantum matter.
