The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland

The 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to mathematicians working in Flatland Michael Kosterlitz for “theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter.When cooled to just a few degrees above absolute zero, and subjected to a perpendicular magnetic field of 15 Tesla (just barely weaker than the magnetic field required to levitate a frog), that conductive 2D layer started acting very differently.
