אירוע זיכרון לקובי קראוס
 
 
The mini-symposium is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Kobi Kraus who died tragically on November 09, 2016. The lecturers are the people who worked with Kobi during his short academic carrier, both supervisors and collaborators. The topics of the talks illustrate Kobi’s interests. They cover the quantum Hall effect, topological insulators and quasi-crystals.
