This course introduces students to key concepts and techniques in mathematical physics. Topics will be taken from contemporary research areas in mathematical physics.
Possible topics include:
- Lie algebras
- String theory
- Conformal field theory
- Gauge field theory
- Integrable models
Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but will be assessed separately.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
1. Explain the fundamental concepts of a special topic in mathematical physics.
2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of specific mathematical physics techniques.
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analysing, proving and explaining concepts from mathematical physics.
Assessment is expected to be based on:
- Three assignments (20% each; LO 1-3)
- Examination (40%; LO 1-3)
