Advanced Lectures on Theoretical Physics
Supporting physics teaching and research in 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 third 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 is now closed.  39 students were selected from all over Latin America and some other countries around the world.  For more information visit our Website.

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.
