The
Department
of Mathematics of the
Université
de Bourgogne (Dijon, France) opens 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.
