Lectures and Seminars in SS 2019

SPECIAL RELATIVITY
This is a new undergraduate course on Special Relativity and Classical Field Theory. Discover the strange world of Minkowski space and relativistic mechanics and learn more about the fundamental structure of electrodynamics. Recommended for students in the 4. and 6. semester.
PHYSICS OF COMPLEX SYSTEMS
Complex systems exhibit fascinating physical properties, but they are not necessarily complicated. This course is concerned with the collective behavior of many-particle systems, emergent phenomena, classical and quantum chaos, and nonequilibrium phase transitions.
TP III GROUP SEMINAR
In our joint weekly group seminar the Bachelor and Master students working on Gauge/Gravity Duality and Statistical Physics give informal talks in order to present their projects and to discuss open problems and possible solutions. Everyone is invited to participate.

Previously given Lectures and Seminars

STATISTICAL PHYSICS
This is the undergraduate course on Statistical Physics and Thermodynamics and its relation to classical information theory. Learn more about state spaces, Markov processes, information, the Second Law, thermal equilibrium as well as nonequilibrium physics.
THEORY OF GENERAL RELATIVITY
In Newtonian physics, space and time are a container in which our lives take place. General Relativity changes this viewpoint radically: Space and Time are rather physical objects in themselves, exhibiting a surprisingly rich physical behavior with deep implications on Astrophysics and Cosmology.
QUANTUM INFORMATION THEORY
10 years ago we started the first seminar on Quantum Information Theory at the Physics Faculty in Würzburg. Since then the course has attracted many students and turned into a full lecture for Master students with accompanying tutorials.
