The Landau paradigm is the idea that phases of matter should be understood in terms of symmetry. Recent advances in our understanding of symmetry in quantum many-body systems offer the possibility of a generalized Landau paradigm that encompasses all equilibrium phases of matter.
This talk will be an elementary review of some of these developments, based on:
