Research Immersion (MB120006p)


Course Memo

The goal of Research Immersion in Theoretical Physics is to familiarize students with current research directions and trends in modern theoretical physics. The specific tasks to be implemented regarding the above goal are two-fold: i) immersion into environment of the international conference on condensed matter theory, and ii) formation of skills for independent research work. Therefore it involves two types of activities: (1) participation in one of top-rank international conferences/workshops in theoretical physics resulting in a 5-pages report on modern trends in theoretical physics, and (2) implementation of a proposed research projects suggested by the course instructor. The location of the second type of activity is person-specific for each of the students (Skoltech, Landau Institute, Google Corp.)
