Symplectic geometry & classical mechanics, Problem sheet 4

December 12, 2017

For winter semester 2017-18 I am giving a course on symplectic geometry and classical mechanics. This course is intended for anyone with a familiarity with classical mechanics and basic differential geometry. You can find the Youtube playlist here.

Problem sheets are being prepared by Terry Farrelly and will be made available here on my blog, however solutions will *not* be distributed.

Here you can find problem sheet 4.

A QIG seminar on “the Polynomial Hierarchy” by Friederike Dziemba

June 6, 2016

In this post I’d like to share a video we’ve uploaded of a recent talk in the quantum information group seminar series by Friederike Dziemba where she presents a physicist-friendly overview of the polynomial hierarchy, a central idea in computational complexity theory:

A QIG seminar on “Approximating Polynomial Optimizations” by David Reeb

June 6, 2016

The quantum information group, Hannover, organises a regular group seminar where members have the opportunity to speak on a variety of themes from communicating early new results, to general interest topics such as reviews of interesting new papers.

In this post I’d like to highlght a video we’ve uploaded of a recent talk by David Reeb on “Approximating Polynomial Optimizations” via semidefinite programs:

Advanced quantum theory

June 6, 2016

This summer semester (2016) I am giving a course on advanced quantum theory. This course is intended for theorists with familiarity with basic textbook single-particle quantum mechanics. The main objective is to understand how to study many interacting particles within QM. We will cover second quantisation, scattering theory, and some elementary relativistic quantum mechanics.

The course is now well under way and there are already several lectures available on youtube in the following playlist. I’ll be posting the rest there as the course develops.
