Master Class "Selected Topics in Statistical Field Theory"



Class on the Relation of the Manna Model to Depinning, 4/2019


About the Course

This course will provide you with a deeper understanding of field theory, universality and the renormalization group. Applications range from the large-scale structure in the universe over magnets to your coffee cup. Basic knowledge of field theory is required. We start with a review of the basics, including φ4-theory, Gaussian integrals, and the path integral. While most applications are chosen for simplicity from statistical mechanics, the methods are general, and useful in high-energy physics, condensed matter, and soft matter. Topics are Course Material Lecturers
