Symmetries and Phase Transitions – from Crystals and Superconductors to the Higgs particle and the Cosmos
to be held from 29th August to 2nd September 2016 in the city centre of Dresden, Germany.
The interdisciplinary school is aimed at PhD students and postdocs in particle physics, condensed matter, and chemistry. Symmetries, symmetry breaking and phase transition are key concepts in many modern topics in all these areas, and the school focuses on these common concepts and aims to deepen their understanding. The lectures cover the theoretical background as well as applications in all fields. Tutorials give the chance for hands-on learning of group theory concepts.
Thanks to significant financial support from German's initiative of excellence, the participation fee is low, and additional financial support for participants can be available upon request: The participation fee for international participants is only 150 Euro.
