SFT 2021 - Lectures on Statistical Field Theories

Online Event
Feb 08, 2021 - Feb 19, 2021

Apply (deadline: Nov 15, 2020 )
Note: you are applying after the deadline

The aim of the school is to bring together PhD students with interests in low-dimensional quantum field theory, conformal field theory and integrable models, and their applications to statistical mechanics and condensed matter systems, and to help them building a solid and specialized background on these subjects. The school provides sets of postgraduate lectures covering introductory topics as well as recent developments in the field.

Lectures will be scheduled four hours each morning, for a total amount of about forty hours, over two weeks. Presentations will be given on the blackboard. The afternoon will be devoted to exercises, study, and discussions with lecturers and senior participants. A desk and standard research facilities will be provided to all participants.

This year the school can only admit twenty-five participants in-person. Accomodation in single rooms will be provided for a total price of about 500 €. Financial support to accomodation expenses may be provided, upon request, to about 20 participants. The lectures will be broadcast for allowing further students to follow on-line: they should also register, specifying "on-line participation" in their application.

The courses can be included in the the Ph.D. curricula of Italian Universities and abroad. If necessary, a final exam on the courses can be taken.
