Nordita, Stockholm, Sweden
The traditional Nordita summer school in physics for students from the Nordic and Baltic countries aims at introducing frontier areas of physics research by world top scientists at a level understandable for master's and undergraduate students, and also to stimulate further studies. The lectures will be accompanied by exercises in groups and discussion sessions.
Deadline for application: 1 July 2019
(An incorrect date was given in an earlier announcement)
The master class starts on the evening of 10th of August, Saturday with a simple dinner. We start in earnest from Sunday 11th of August and finish the regular lectures on 15th of August, Thursday. The morning of 16th is occupied by four special seminars on modern topics in theoretical physics. The master class ends after lunch on 16th.
There will be two principal lecturers each giving a two-hour lecture in the morning. In the afternoon there will be one talk on current topics on the subject. There will also be tutorial sessions during afternoon.
