SFT 2023 - Lectures on Statistical Field Theories

Feb 06, 2023 - Feb 17, 2023

Apply (deadline: Nov 15, 2022 )

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.

The school can admit up to forty participants. Financial support for accommodation expenses may be provided, upon request.

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.

Please note that unless new restrictions will be imposed, the school will be held in presence only.
