Mathematica Summer School is a unique international event in theoretical physics, with a long history of success. It has a unique format; the morning sessions are reserved for lecture sessions on theoretical aspects and in the afternoon, students and mentors get together to solve complicated problems using the software Mathematica - a popular computational tool in theoretical physics.
This summer school aims to equip young researchers with skills required to use modern computational tools and to provide them a platform to interact with experts from different mathematical fields, including computer algebra systems.
The topic for the 2020 edition of the Mathematica Summer School is ‘d>2 Conformal Field Theories’. It will focus on using Mathematica to explore physical and mathematical properties of conformal field theories (CFTs), in generic dimensions; an active area of modern mathematical physics. It will also cover various other aspects of CFTs, including integrability, holography, conformal bootstrap, topological sectors and mathematical aspects.
Lecturers include :
- Till Bargheer, Hannover University and DESY
- Nikolay Gromov, King’s College London
- Jason Harris, Wolfram
- Aninda Sinha, Indian Institute of Science
- Pedro Vieira, Perimeter Institute and ICTP – SAIFR
- Alexander Zhiboedov, CERN
Registration is open to PhD students, early PostDocs and advanced undergraduate and masters students in Theoretical Physics
