Course# MATH-606: Statistical Field Theory

Summary

The goal of this class is to teach how to look at two-dimensional field theories, how to analyse them, how to put structures on them. In the end, the student should have a good picture into what we understand for what is happening at the intersection of Quantum Field Theory and Statistical Mechanics

PHYS-739: Conformal Field theory and Gravity

This course is an introduction to the non-perturbative bootstrap approach to Conformal Field Theory and to the Gauge/Gravity duality, emphasizing the fruitful interplay between these two ideas.

MATH-434: Lattice models

Lattice models consist of (typically random) objects living on a periodic graph. We will study some models that are mathematically interesting and representative of physical phenomena seen in the real world.

PHYS-640: Neutron and X-ray Scattering of Quantum Materials

NNeutron and X-ray scattering are some of the most powerful and versatile experimental methods to study the structure and dynamics of materials on the atomic scale. This course covers basic theory, instrumentation and scientific applications of these experimental methods.

PHYS-462: Quantum transport in mesoscopic systems

This course will focus on the electron transport in semiconductors, with emphasis on the mesoscopic systems. The aim is to understand the transport of electrons in low dimensional systems, where even particles with statistics different than fermions and bosons will be discussed.

PHYS-431: Quantum field theory I

The goal of the course is to introduce relativistic quantum field theory as the conceptual and mathematical framework describing fundamental interactions.
