TGD & Condensed Matter: Basic Notions

Matti Pitkänen


The purpose of this article is to consider the possible applications of TGD in condensed matter physics at the general level. It must be emphasized that TGD is only a vision, not a theory able to provide precise rules for calculating scattering amplitudes. A collective theoretical and experimental effort would be needed to achieve this. The proposal for a model of superconductivity provides a representative example about what TGD could possibly give for condensed matter physics. It is perhaps good to explain what TGD is not and what it is or hoped to be. The article gives an overview of various aspects of TGD and is warmly recommended. The appendix of this article provide figures illustrating the basic notions.
