Theory seminar

In this seminar recent developments in the fields of theoretical particle physics, cosmology and condensed matter physics are presented by invited speakers. Due to the cross-disciplinary character each talk begins with a broader introduction into the research topic. The seminar takes place on each Monday at 14 c.t. in the Seminar Room bctp 1 (2.019), Wegelerstr. 10.
