3rd Summer School on Condensed Matter Research
August 7 - 14, 2004, Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz, Switzerland

As a continuation of our traditional summer school on neutron scattering we
initiated two years ago an extended type of school which is called PSI
Summer School on Condensed Matter Research. While the experimental methods
provided by PSI to the scientific community, that is neutrons, muons and
synchrotron light - should still play a crucial but not exclusive role, the
emphasis of the school should be on a particular topic, to be defined every
year. The topic of this third school (2004) will be Phase Transitions.
