Advanced Lectures on Theoretical Physics Supporting physics teaching and research in Venezuela and Latin America
Physics Without Frontiers has enlisted volunteer Daniel Galviz and partnered with the Physics Department at the University of Los Andes to provide online advanced courses in theoretical physics for undergraduate and graduate students in Venezuela and Latin America.
The second course, Geometry and Topology for Physicists, will be taught online from 15th March to 7th July 2023 by Daniel Galviz at Yau Mathematical Science Center (Tsinghua University) China, and ICTS (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) India.
Physics students from different universities in Venezuela and Latin America will be trained in Mathematics and geometrical/ topological applications to physics. Every student will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate at the end.
The application procedure will open soon (the deadline is on 28th February 2023).
Goals and deliverables
Help students in Latin America by teaching lectures on theoretical physics.
Help students to be familiar with advanced research topics in theoretical physics. Students will solve weekly assignments on these topics.
Top students without MSc./Ph.D. will be mentored to pursue studies abroad, giving advice and recommendations about scholarships at international programs.
Special Guest Speaker: Prof. Xenia de la Ossa (University of Oxford, UK)
Lecturer and Project coordinator: Daniel Galviz, YMSC (Tsinghua University) & ICTS (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research)
