Also, revision sessions for C6-AQT students will be held by Prof Parameswaran (week 4) and Prof Starinets (week 6).

Revision class by Prof Parameswaran:

We will have a revision session from 14.00-17.00 on Wednesday, May 19 (Week 4).

The revision will cover 1-2 past papers, as well as address any questions from students.

Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/94952428142

Students can also post any questions in advance of the lecture on Padlet: https://padlet.com/siddharthap/4pcql4i1432uhzz

The session will be recorded and made available via Panopto.

This
course covers both the C6 (Theory) MPhys
option (in
MT & HT) and the MMathPhys
Advanced Quantum
Theory course (in MT only). The course is intended to give
an introduction to
some aspects of classical and quantum field theory,
many-body systems and
related issues. It also serves as an introduction to the
path integral
technique. These form the basis of our current theoretical
understanding of
particle physics, condensed matter and statistical
physics. An aim is to
present some core ideas and important applications in a
unified way. The
applications include classical mechanics of continuum
systems, quantum
mechanics and statistical mechanics of many-particle
systems, and some basic
aspects of relativistic quantum field theory.

All tutorials will be online (via Zoom). For details such as the deadlines for homework submission, please contact the tutor of your group.

Tutorial groups list can be found here. If you have not signed up for one of the groups, but would like to do so, please submit your request to the tutor of the group you prefer, with cc to Andrei Starinets (andrei.starinets@physics.ox.ac.uk).
