4. - 15. September
The 23rd “Saalburg” Summer School
|Where: ||Wolfersdorf, Thüringen|
|When: ||From afternoon of Sunday, 04.09.16 to afternoon of Friday, 16.09.16|
|Participants: ||Up to 35 PhD students|
|Cost: ||Travel plus 150 Euro|
|Deadline: ||30 June 2017|
|Topic: ||The school focuses on quantum field theory, particle physics and (quantum) gravity, but other related areas of theoretical and mathematical physics (e.g. aspects of string theory, condensed matter physics, quantum information) also receive attention.|
|Lecturer 1: ||M. Bañados (Santiago de Chile) - Three dimensional gravity|
|Lecturer 2:||L. Covi (Göttingen) - Dark matter, baryogenesis and all that |
|Lecturer 3: ||J. de Boer (Amsterdam) - Entanglement |
|Lecturer 4: ||R. Durrer (Geneva) - Cosmology, where smallest and largest scales meet M. Serone (SISSA, Trieste) Exact perturbation theory|
The idea of this summer school is to learn new and old methods relevant to modern theoretical physics, formal as well as phenomenological. This is important especially for soon-to-be postdocs who need to broaden their view and skills in order to be competitive and versatile in changing collaborations. The aim of the school is to provide first hands-on experience with those topics. Accordingly, special emphasis is placed on exercises in small groups, complementing three hours of morning lectures. In the afternoon, the lecturers guide the students through a set of exemplary problems, which illustrate and expand on the main points of the lectures. The atmosphere is informal and lively discussions are encouraged.
Organized by Arthur Hebecker (Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg), Ivo Sachs (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München), Stefan Theisen (Albert-Einstein-Institut Potsdam) and Olaf Lechtenfeld (Leibniz Universität Hannover).
