Geometry and Quantum Theory (GQT)

School

The academic program consists of a 3-day graduate school and a 2-day conference.

Graduate School (July 1 to 3, 2019)

The idea behind the GQT school is that participants will get a basic understanding of some central topics in GQT-research, including many important themes which may lie outside one’s own research specialization. Hence, we strongly encourage Ph.D. students to participate in all three days as a way to broaden their mathematical formation and increase awareness regarding the research carried out within the cluster.
Another important side to the event is that it will provide the opportunity for graduate students within the GQT cluster to get to know and socialize with each other as well as have some academic interaction.
The school will consist of three days of lectures and exercise sessions; the topics and speakers are as follows:

  • July 1 — Christopher Lazda (Uva)
  • July 2 — David Holmes (Leiden)
  • July 3 — Steffen Sagave (Nijmegen)

Besides the three minicourses, there will be one or two Ph.D. talks (given by Ph.D. students to Ph.D. students) on Tuesday and Wednesday morning before the beginning of the minicourse.
