Description

The Wolfgang Pauli Centre for Theoretical Physics, a joint forum of the Universität Hamburg and DESY,  in collaboration with the Clusters of excellence CUI: Advanced Imaging of Matter and the Quantum Universe,   organzises a scientific Symposium to honor the Hamburg Prizes for Theoretical Physics 2020 and 2021 which are being awarded to Prof. Valery Rubakov (INR Moskow) and Prof. Eugene Demler (ETH Zuerich), respectively. 

The first half of the Symposium on Nov 8-10 is devoted to the work of Valery Rubakov and it will feature scientific talks in the following areas:

  • Advanced topics in Quantum Field Theory
  • Cosmology
  • Modified gravity

The second half of the Symposium on Nov 10-12 is devoted to the work of Eugene Demler and it will feature scientific talks in the following areas:

  • Novel phases of matter in quantum many-body systems
  • Driven quantum many-body systems
  • Topological effects in quantum many-body systems, such as quantum antiferromagnets, quantum spin liquids, etc.
  • Nonlinear xray spectroscopy of condensed matter

The award ceremony for the Hamburg Prize for Theoretical Physics is organized by the Joachim Herz Stiftung on November 10 in Hamburg's Planetarium. Participation requires a separate registration.
