Programme

A series of Seminars devoted to forefront research, which
will address various issues of current interest in
Theoretical Physics: Standard Model and its extensions,
effective field theories, Supersimmetry, Supergravity and
String Theory, their applications to Particle Physics and
Cosmology, higher spins. The offer will also include the
Colloquia of the Class of Sciences, which are held on a
monthly basis and are devoted to wide-ranging reviews
of important topics in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics
and Physics.
The course will also include, in this Academic Year, three
series of seminars, of 10 hours each:


- D. Fioravanti - Integrable systems

- F. Strocchi - Symmetry Breaking

- A. Tomasiello - Geometric Methods in String Theory

Educational aims

The course is meant to expose students to several frontier topics, including those actively pursued here, while also giving them the opportunity to meet specialists active on various aspects of Theoretical Physics.

The course will also include introductory lectures devoted to three important topics:

integrable systems, Hamiltonian mechanics and symmetry breaking and Geometric Methods in String Theory
