DESCRIPTION:Advanced Lectures on Theoretical Physics & Math\nSupporting te
aching and research in Latin America Physics Latam will offer an online ad
vanced course in Quantum Information Theory for undergraduate and graduate
students in Latin America.\nThe Infinite-dimensional Lie Algebras course\
, will be taught online from 13th March to 31st August 2024 by Sebastian S
chlegel Mejia (Max Planck Institute for Mathematics-Bonn\, Germany). Physi
cs students from different universities in Latin America will be trained i
n Kac-Moody Lie algebras\, inInfinite-dimensional Lie Algebras\,affine Dyn
kin diagrams and its applications. Every student who successfully complete
s the course will receive an ICTP-PWF certificate at the end.\nThe classif
ication of simple Lie algebras through Cartan matrices and Dynkin diagrams
is one of the most gratifying achievements in mathematics. Kac-Moody Lie
algebras build upon this classification to explore the realm of infinite-d
imensional Lie algebras\, which is the focal point of this course. A signi
ficant subset of these is the affine Lie algebras\, classified by affine D
ynkin diagrams. After studying the Virasoro Lie algebra and its representa
tions\, we will construct the theory of Kac-Moody Lie algebras and their r
epresentations from scratch. Syllabus.Goals and deliverables \nHelp studen
ts in Latin America by teaching lectures on Infinite-dimensional Lie Algeb
ras.\nHelp students to be familiar with advanced research topics in this a
rea.\nStudents will solve weekly assignments on these topics.\nTop student
s without MSc./Ph.D. will be mentored to pursue studies abroad\, giving ad
vice and recommendations about scholarships at international programs.\nTh
e application procedure is now open HERE. For more information visit our W
