Lectures and Seminars in WS 2018 / 2019


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.


OBERSEMINAR
Welcome to our Advanced Seminar during the winter term 2018/19. In this seminar we intend to address advanced topics and current research related to the Theory of General Relativity.


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


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.


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.


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 manyparticle systems, emergent phenomena, classical and quantum chaos, and nonequilibrium phase transitions.
