Watson Lecture
Electrons in Flatland

Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Caltech

Discusses various examples of emergent phenomena in physics. The stage is Flatland, a simple plane surface, and the actors mere electrons. The drama that unfolds includes bizarre phenomena such as fractional charges, electrons bound to the voids between other electrons, and even the idea that such craziness will lead us to a new means of computation.
