The Journal Club provides an informal environment to practice presenting scientific material, a platform for discussion, as well as exposure to a broader background in physics. Everyone is welcome to attend, but if you are interested in giving a talk please let us know (by emailing mm2025 @

Talks should present the key results of a seminal paper chosen by the presenter, over a maximum of 50 minutes with at least 10 minutes for discussion. Whilst there are no restrictions on the publication date or subject matter of the paper, we encourage presenters to choose material which has proved to be influential for a wide section of the theoretical condensed matter community. The presentation itself need not follow the same structure as the original paper, and more modern pedagogical approaches to the same result can be adopted. Blackboard presentations are preferred.

The next speaker and their chosen paper will be announced via the mailing list and will be shown to the right. Subscribers will be listed to the right in the order they will present. Each session is chaired by the previous speaker, the role of whom is to introduce the speaker and lead the discussion. Members are generally expected to have read the paper and the chair is expected to read in enough detail to lead the discussion.
