Project Summary

The present project has the goal to analyze the effects of frustration on different topics of actual interest in physics. We will introduce and develop several models, of relevance in different areas, characterized by different degrees of frustration, amenable of analytic and/or efficient numerical solutions.

The final objective is to study the different physical phenomena that the frustration induces in them.
