Delta ITP Course Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics



11:15 hrs


Amsterdam, Utrecht, Leiden


This fall's Delta ITP Course Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics is built around the general theme of Modern Methods in Theoretical Physics. The course is divided into three 5-week modules, which will cover the Renormalization Group, Beyond LCDM and Machine Learning.

Each module consists of four lectures and exercise sessions. Lectures will take place on Mondays at 11:15 - 13:00, followed by a study/exercise session from 13:45 - end. At the end of the module there is an exam. All exams are pass/fail, and you need to pass all three exams to receive credit for the course.
