Advanced Mathematical Physics (AdvMathPhys)

Course content

  • Selected topics in Quantum Mechanics and Statistical Mechanics. Besides fundamental issues the course will focus on more specialized topics depending on the interests and preferences of the participants. Among these topics may be a selection from the following list: spectral theory for unbounded operators, the Schrödinger equation and Stone's theorem, perturbation theory, scattering theory, stability of matter; quantum information theory and  if time permits many-body systems or statistical mechanics.
