Bad Honnef Physics School on Methods of Path Integration in Modern Physics
25 Aug 2019 - 30 Aug 2019 • Bad Honnef, Germany
Abstract:
Since Richard Feynman recognized that quantum mechanics can be formulated in terms of path integrals, various applications for this useful calculational technique have emerged among physicists in such diverse areas as quantum field theory, elementary particle physics, nuclear and subnuclear physics, atomic and molecular physics, quantum chemistry, condensed matter physics, complex systems, and astrophysics. Despite its broad range of dissemination neither the unifying approach to quantum and statistical field theory, i.e., the Feynman path integral, nor the advanced methods to address interacting quantum and statistical field theories are much covered in standard curricula. It is for this reason that this advanced summer school on path integration techniques aims to provide students and young independent researchers with a hands-on introduction in using path integrals for modern physics and to expose the participants of the school to methods that go beyond the standard tools box of field theory. In order to create a common basis and set the stage for subsequent lectures, an introduction to the Feynman path integral in quantum mechanics will be given at the beginning of the school, followed by a selection of more advanced methods of quantum and statistical field theory.

Summer School "Photonic technologies for harsh environments and space applications”
25 Aug 2019 - 31 Aug 2019 • Frankfurt (Oder) - Germany, Rome - Italy, Germany
Abstract:
The Summer School is organized by IHP - Innovations for High Performance Microelectronics and Materials Science coordination group of University of Rome Tor Vergata. The event will take place at IHP (Frankfurt (Oder) - Germany) and University of Rome Tor Vergata, Department of Industrial Engineering (Rome - Italy) from 25th until 31st of August 2019.

The objective of this summer school: Novel technologies enable the future demands of the society for increasing high speed data transfer and broad band communication systems. Silicon photonics is a key enabling technology which fulfills these demands. Beside these mainstream applications Si-Photonic technologies in particular electronic-photonic-integrated-circuit (EPIC) technologies are foreseen for extra-terrestrial and medical applications as intra satellite communication. For this reasons higher requirements with respect to stability and reliability of components and modules. Purpose of the “German-Italian-Summer-School” is to provide inside view to recent developments in the field of photonics technologies, circuits and systems. Moreover novel developments and challenges for high performance technologies in harsh environments are presented and discussed. We want to teach and discuss these developments and give the opportunity to create the future – join us!

correl19 — Autumn School on Correlated Electrons: Many-Body Methods for Real Materials
16 Sep 2019 - 20 Sep 2019 • Jülich, Germany
Abstract:
Emergent many-body phenomena are at the core of the exciting properties of strongly correlated materials. Understanding them requires confronting the many-body problem. While, at first, this appears to be an impossible task, substantial progress has been made by combining physical insights with modern numerical approaches. A successful strategy is to devise methods that use the understanding gained from simple models for the construction of physically motivated wave-functions. Results for the ground state of real materials can then be obtained by optimizing them via deterministic or stochastic algorithms. The methods of choice for determining spectra are instead based on Green functions. The key idea is to map the complex realistic many-body Hamiltonian to a simpler auxiliary model that can be solved numerically.
