Further Information and Links

Apart from the basic courses, we offer a number of advanced courses in the areas of condensed matter physics, materials science, soft matter science, magnetism and spin physics, advanced statistical physics, quantum many body theory and simulation methods. In addition, students at the MSc (master of science) level have the opportunity to carry out lab projects or  computer simulation projects in the groups as part of the Advanced lab course. All group leaders also offer projects for bachelor and master theses. Just contact us and ask for details.

For students at the master's level and beyond, the following lectures are offered on a regular basis:

  • Advanced statistical physics (Theory 6b, 9 CP or 6+5 CP, winter term)
    This class builds on the bachelor level class "Theorie 4" (statistical physics and thermodynamics) and provides basic knowledge on topics like phase transitions and nonequilibrium physics.
  • Theoretical quantum optics and many-body physics (Theory 6c, 9 CP, winter term)
    This class focusses on nonrelativistic quantum field theory and quantum optics.
  • Theoretical solid state physics (Theory 6d, 9 CP, summer term)
    This class provides basic knowledge on the theory of solid matter.
  • Computer simulations in statistical physics (6 CP, summer term)
    This class is also open for students from computer science (master level) and gives an introduction into the foundations of basic computer simulation techniques such as Monte Carlo simulation and Molecular Dynamics simulations.
  • Advanced solid state physics (6 CP, winter term)
    This class builds on Theory 6d and introduces into advanced topics of solid state theory.

Other regularly offered classes include

  • Modern simulation techniques in condensed matter physics (6 CP, summer term)
  • Theory of soft matter/ Theoretical polymer science (6 CP, summer term )
  • Introduction to Advanced Materials (6 CP, winter term)
