Title:  "Taming Wave Propagation Via Parity-Time Symmetry: Examples From Integrated Optics and Electronics"

Abstract: We will introduce the notion of Parity-Time (PT) symmetry and present its implications in classical
wave propagation. Using integrated optics and electronics as a playfields we show how one can construct
new circuitry designs that allow for asymmetric transport due to interplay of the novel properties of PT-
symmetry and non-linearity or gyrotropic elements.
