Proseminars in Theoretical Physics

Main content

The Institute offers four Proseminars in Theoretical Physics for the upcoming Spring semester.  

Topic assignment

The assignment of topics took place on Monday, December 12, 2016.


The student prepares a presentation of around, but not more than, one hour duration, on a specific topic assigned in advance. A tutor from the Institute of Theoretical Physics will provide literature and give a feedback on the student's progress. Students keep the tutor informed about their work in weekly meetings, starting (at least) 6 weeks before the date of the final presentation.

Requirements for passing the module

  • The student gives a pedagogical talk on the assigned topic, demonstrating a firm understanding of the subject. The presentation is
    shown to the tutor a week in advance.
  • A written scientific report in english (6 pages double-column PRB format) is handed in 4 weeks after the presentation. This report
    covers the presented material.
  • The presence of the student is required in at least 80% of sessions.
