Students to Students Split Summer School is made by students of Theoretical and Mathematical physics masters programme at LMU in collaboration University of Split. The goal of the school is to cover some of the basic concepts in fields of theoretical and mathematical physics in a non traditional way and then presenting current research in these areas. It will take place in Split, Croatia. Target group for this conference are Bachelor and Master students.
We expect the audience to gain an insight into basic content and ideas of field theories including both, the mathematical and the physical approach. Also, our goal is to show not only topics regarding these areas which students can find in regular textbooks but also to discuss topics which are usually not covered in a regular course. Furthermore, lectures will be accompanied by discussion sessions. We will conclude the conference with a social event- a unique fusion of tra- ditional food: Bavarian-Dalmatian breakfast
Fields covered in the summer school are divided into four main parts:
Research interests: Mathematical physics, noncommutative spaces, integrable systems
Research interests: Elementary Particle physics, LHC physics, CMS experiment
Research interests: Effective theories of electroweak symmetry breaking; flavor physics; dark matter.
There is no participation fee for this summer school. However, participants should take care of the accommodation. You can submit your application online. The registration deadline is 1.9.2017.
Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It also one of the oldest cities in the region as it was founded in the 3rd or 2nd century BCE as the Greek colony of Aspfialathos. However, the first permanent resident of Split was Roman Emperor Diocletian. In 305 BCE he built his famous Diocletian's Palace as a place to spend his retirement. The site was most likely chosen due to being near to Salona, the capital of the province of Dalmatia at that time, but also having a secure port and a more immediate access to the open sea in the case of an attack. After the Romans abandoned the site, the Palace remained empty for several centuries. In the 7th century, nearby residents ed to the walled palace in an efort to escape invading Avars. Since then the palace has been occupied, with residents making their homes and businesses within the palace basement and directly in its walls. Today palace is filed with shops and restaurants. Split is also famous for its beaches. There are many beaches in Split Croatia, ranging from sandy to pebble ones. Most of the beaches are southeast of Split's harbor all the way to Podstrana village. Others are at the foot of Marjan hill, mostly rocky, bordered by a pine forest and with good local bus connections. In nearly all Split beaches the sea water is very clean and calm, without tides, under water currents or high waves. The sea temperature is comfortably warm from mid May to mid October.
Students to students summer school will take place at the building of Faculty of Science in Split. Accommodation of participants of the school will be organised at the students dormitory which is located at University campus.
