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 fourth course, General Relativity and Cosmology, will be taught online from 2nd June to 8th Sept. 2023 by Daniel Galviz at Yau Mathematical Science Center (Tsinghua University) China, and ICTS (Tata Institute of Fundamental Research) India, and Esteban Chalbaud LIP-Coimbra (University of Coimbra), CERN (ATLAS).  Physics students from different universities in Latin America will be trained in general relativity and its applications to cosmology. Every student will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate at the end.


The application procedure will open soon (the deadline is on 19th May 2023).
