 Wintersemester 2018/19
   Seminar Theoretische Physik

Theory Seminar

Time & Place:
Wednesday 10h c.t. Room and Thursday 10h c.t. Room
    In the seminar, students present a problem of current research in theoretical physics. The topics are defined by original publications chosen from the fields of the lecturers' research groups.
    In the first session, the lecturers propose topics, the students choose one, and we set up the seminar calendar. The first session will take place on Wednesday in the first week of the Semester (see calendar below).
  • Literature available at the moodle site of the seminar.

  • The talks should take a maximum time of 40 min and use the blackboard, with a minimum use of presentation slides. Avoid using Powerpoint. The students have to report in the first two weeks of the semester to the lecturer corresponding to their topic to ask for the relevant literature.
  • At the very latest four weeks before the talk, you have to report to the lecturer to discuss an outline and to select material.
  • In the week before the talk, the title and a short abstract will be published on this page. Please send plain text (no attachments, no formulas) to C. Henkel.
  • Please send also a message should you find errors in the calendar or should you have to cancel your talk.
