A series of lectures on mathematical methods and theoretical physics
Andreas Wipf, Professor of Friedrich-Schiller-University, will visit the S.M. Nikol’skii Mathematical Institute with a series of lectures on mathematical methods and theoretical physics.
9 -15, May, 2019 the S.M. Nikol’skii Mathematical Institute will organize a series of lectures by professor Andreas Wipf. Professor A. Wipf, Dean of the Faculty for Physics and Astronomy of Friedrich-Schiller-University (Jena, Germany) is a well-known expert in the field of Theoretical Physics.
The scientific interests of Professor Wipf include the following areas: simulations of lattice field theories with and without dynamical fermions; nonperturbative aspects of (supersymmetric) field theories; monopoles, sphalerons and instantons in Gauge Theories; quantum physics in curved spaces: black hole physics; conformal field theories; quantization of 2-dimensional Gauge Theories; external field problems.
Professors and students of the Mathematical Institute will have the opportunity to listen to a series of lectures on applications of mathematical methods in theoretical physics. Research in Field Theory profits considerably from mathematical methods and the interdependency of physics and mathematics. For example, the methods from modern Differential Geometry are needed for solving and investigating nonlinear field equations. At the same time numerical and stochastic methods become increasingly important, for example in simulations of quantum field theories in elementary-particle and solid-state physics.
The schedule of the lectures as follows:
- «Research and teaching at the Friedrich-Schiller-University», June, 11, 12:00, 3, Ordzhonikidze st., аud. 398.
- «Interacting Fermions in two and free dimensions», June, 13, The Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, 6, Joliot-Curie, Dubna.
- «The supersymmetries of the Dirac operator in curved spacetime».June, 13, 6, Miklukho-Maklaya st.
