This proseminar
in Theoretical Physics is coordinated by Prof. Niklas Beisert.
The talks will be presented on Monday mornings, usually 9:00–12:45 in HIT F 32 according to the below schedule.
Criteria for passing the module:
Each presentation should last around 60 minutes, but not more. It is followed by a general discussion. You are encouraged give a computer presentation.
Each student is assigned to a research assistant at the institute as a tutor for their talk. You should contact your tutor at least six weeks before your talk to discuss logistics. You should keep your tutor updated of your work at least once a week.
One week before your talk you are expected to have a draft of your report as well as a finished set of slides which you have to present to your tutor. The report can be handed in up to one week after the talk.
Below you find a list of all the talks. For each talk there is a brief description of the topic, a list of suggested items to be covered as well as some useful references; for more specific guidance and further references, please ask your tutor.
More details can be found in this document.
