How to read modern condensed matter field research

  • #1
Summary:
I'd like some advice on supplementing self learning.
Hi all,
(I also posted this in the high energy theory section since my impression is there is a deep interplay between modern condensed matter theory and high energy theory).

Some background: I'm interested in the interplay between condensed matter and high energy theory. I'm a bit more than half-way through peskin and schroeder, the standard QFT text (done with part II, RG and critical phenomena).

What I find out is that I'm still sorely lacking in ability to read any of the current research in condensed matter.

A lot of the modern papers uses CFT, TQFT knowledge, and intuition about topological phases and entanglement/phase transition, phases of gauge theory (confinement etc...) and exotic field theory models.

It seems to make progress I'd like some idea of what I can study further, aka supplement a "standard" QFT text like Peskin & Schroeder to enrich my understanding.

What resource do you recommend to supplement a standard text like Peskin and Schroeder to modern condensed matter field research?
