Delta ITP Course Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics: Hydrodynamics and collective dynamics





This spring's Delta ITP Course Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics aimed at advanced Master’s students, PhD and postdoctoral researchers, is built around the general theme of Hydrodynamics and collective dynamics.
Lectures will take place on Monday's at 11:15-13:00, followed by a study/exercise session 13:45- end. 
The location of this semester's course rotates between the three institutes. The first module will be held in 
Amsterdam, the second in Leiden and the third in Utrecht.
The course will be divided into three 5-week modules; for each one there are four lectures (2hrs each) and four exercise sessions (4hrs each). At the end of the module there is an exam. All exams will be graded with a pass or fail. You need to pass all three exams to receive credit for the course.

Please fill in the 
registration form before the course begins, even if you do not plan to take the course for credit.
We cannot process your grade or send important notices if you do not register ahead of time.

Travel Cost Reimbursement:
Students who do not have an OV-card from the Dutch government can have their travel costs reimbursed from Delta ITP.
Please contact your local organizer (below) for details.
