Condensed-matter physics--say what?

Our son wants us to check out the websites of some of the schools to which he's thinking of applying for graduate studies in his newly-chosen physics specialty, condensed matter. Does he truly believe that I have any idea what he, or any of the websites, is talking about?

As we would say in Yiddish-inflected English, when it comes to physics, I don't know from Adam.

Or, in this case, I don't know from atoms.

Ok, why did I laugh at that awful pun?

WestBankMama, as we television science fiction fans say, "Resistance is futile." :) :) :)
