This proseminar in Theoretical Physics is coordinated by Prof. Matthias Christandl
Criteria for passing the module:
Each presentation should last just less than 60 minutes. Students can either give a blackboard or a computer presentation.
Each student
is assigned to a research assistant at the Institute as a tutor for their talk.
The students should contact their tutor at least six weeks before their talk to discuss logistics. They should keep their tutor updated of their work at least once a week.
One week before
their talk they are expected to have a draft of their report as well as a
finished set of slides (or other notes) which they have to present to
their tutor. The report should then be handed in two weeks after the
talk.
Below you can 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 references; for more specific guidance and further references, please ask your tutor.
You are also encouraged to coordinate your talk with your neighbours where appropriate:
The talks will be presented on Mondays, 9.45h - 12.45h in HIT K51.
