Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Preliminary list of topics (subject to change): • Strong-weak coupling duality of sine-Gordon/fermion models in 2D (Coleman, 1975), non-perturbative UV fixed point; • Bethe Ansatz and integrability, • large-N expansion of Gross-Neveu in 2D, Resurgence • Supersymmetry • Thermal field theory • Higher form symmetries (generalization of Noether) • Solitons, quantum lumps, instantons vs. anomalies (maybe) • Anomalies -> Index Thm -> Instantons -> t’Hooft vertex ? • Regge and BFKL • IR factorization in QCD (understand singularities to NLO) • Gribov ambiguity • Scattering amplitudes in N=4 super Yang-Mills • AdS/CFT • Finite T phase transitions, sphalerons • Lattice QCD and confinement
