Poster International Master in Mathematical Physics
Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne
Universite de Bourgogne
Academic year: 2018-2019
The Department of Mathematics of the Universite de Bourgogne offers a two-year master program in Mathematical Physics.
Advanced students may be admitted to the 2nd year of the Master.
Students who will successfully complete the M.Sc. program will be encouraged to apply to one of the Ph.D. fellowships that will be available for pursuing their studied in Dijon at the doctorate level.
The main aim of this program is to provide advanced lectures on the mathematical methods of modern theoretical physics in the framework of mathematics curriculum. We offer lecture courses for the students with background in mathematics or mathematical physics giving an introduction to the mathematical methods used for such branches of theoretical physics as quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity, gauge theories, string theory etc. The coursework will cover different fields of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis) and will highlight their applications to the problems of theoretical and mathematical physics.
The student will be integrated from the very beginning into the mathematical physics group of the IMB (Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne) and will have to prepare by the end of their 2nd year a master dissertation under the supervision of a member of the Institute.
The offered courses will include:
1st year of the Master (M1)
Groups and representations
Mathematical methods of classical mechanics
Partial differential equations
2nd year of the Master (M2)
Mathematical methods of quantum physics
Riemann geometry and integrable systems
Lie groups and Lie algebras
Cohomological field theories
Mathematical methods of gravitation
All the lectures will be given in English.
We will also provide several mini courses by the research visitors of the IMB as well as by invited professors in the framework of the Erasmus program.
We expect to have up to 10 fellowships for students.
