The
Department
of Mathematics of the
Université
de Bourgogne (Dijon, France) opens in September 2016 a one-year
master program in Mathematical Physics. The main aim of this program is
to provide advanced lectures on the mathematical methods of modern
theoretical physics in the framework of mathematics cursus. We offer
lecture courses for the students with background in mathematics or
mathematical physics giving an introduction to the mathematical methods
used for such branches of theoretical physics as quantum field theory,
statistical mechanics, general relativity, gauge theories, string theory
etc. The coursework will cover different fields of mathematics (algebra,
geometry, analysis) and will highlight their applications to the
problems of theoretical physics. The student will be integrated
from the very beginning into the mathematical physics group of the
IMB
(Burgundy Mathematical Institute) and will have to prepare by the end of
the year a masters dissertation. All the lectures will be given in
English
We will also provide several mini courses by the research visitors of IMB
as well as by invited professors in the framework of the Erasmus
program.
