Bethe Colloquium by Herbert Spohn

January 2020
Herbert Spohn

The first Bethe Colloquium in 2020 is scheduled for Thursday, January 9th, at 4:15 pm in Hörsaal I.

  • Herbert Spohn (TU München)
  • Hydrodynamics of integrable many-body systems
  • Hörsaal I, Physikalisches Institut

Abstract: Integrable many-body systems have an extensive number of conservation laws. This implies that conventional hydrodynamics, based on mass, momentum, and energy, has to be rewritten. Surprisingly, on large space-time scales the two particle phase shift is the only microscopic information retained (except for Bose, Fermi, classical). For the purpose of the talk I will mainly focus on the classical Toda lattice.

Lecture Series on the "Cosmic Microwave Background"

10.02.2020 – 14.02.2020
Poster CMB
Raphael Flauger (UC San Diego) will give a Lecture Series on the "Cosmic Microwave Background" from February 10 - 14 in the Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics in Bonn.


Abstract: The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is one of the pillars of modern cosmology. Its existence firmly establishes that our universe was once filled with a hot and dense plasma, and the statistical properties of the CMB anisotropies teach us a great deal about the history and composition of our universe.

These lectures provide an introduction to the physics underlying the spectrum of the CMB as well as its anisotropies. In addition to an introduction to the underlying theory, they will provide a short introduction to the analysis of the data from current CMB experiments and will give an outlook what we may hope to learn from future precision measurements of CMB polarization.

More information and the registration form are available on the event webpage.

Bethe Forum "Inflation"

23.03.2020 – 27.03.2020
Poster Inflation
The Bethe Center for Theoretical Physics in Bonn will host a Bethe Forum on "Inflation" from March 23rd to 27th. The organizers are Marco Peloso (Padua), Manuel Drees (Bonn, Hans Peter Nilles (Bonn) and Ivonne Zavala (Swansea).

More information and the registration form can be found on the event webpage.
