The first two of this years’ interns, Jilly Kevo and Maite Carli, have started their internship with us. Under supervision of our PIs Gaetan Borot and Olaf Hohm they will work on research projects in Mathematical Physics. We wish Jilly and Maite an enjoyable and productive time with us.
Congratulation to Jan Plefka, spokesperson of our RTG, who receives a renowned Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). He and his team at the Institute of Physics and at IRIS Adlershof, both HU Berlin, will receive 2.2 million euros for the GraWFTy project (High-Precision Gravitational Wave Physics from a Worldline Quantum Field Theory) … Read more Jan Plefka receives ERC Advanced Grant
Tim Meier and Stijn van Tongeren’s publication Quadratic twist-noncommutative gauge theory is not only the first RTG publication in 2023 but also our 50th publication in total. Congratulations to all RTG members for the productive time since the inception of the RTG in spring 2020.
Markus Schulze, a former PI at the RTG, is currently a member of the winter team of the Antarctica research station Neumayer III. The entire winter team has published an open letter addressing the German Government about the urgency of climate crisis. You can find this letter on the website https://climate4future.de/offener-brief/
We keep growing. On Nov 4th Davide Scazzuso joined us to strengthen our research efforts in Mathematical Physics under supervision of Prof. Borot. We wish Davide a successful time with us!
