Quantum Field Theory for Cosmology (PHYS785/AMATH872)
This course introduces quantum field theory from scratch and then develops the theory of the quantum fluctuations of fields and particles. We will focus, in particular, on how quantum fields are affected by curvature and by spacetime horizons. This will lead us to the Unruh effect, Hawking radiation and to inflationary cosmology. Inflationary cosmology, which we will study in detail, is part of the current standard model of cosmology which holds that all structure in the universe  such as the distribution of galaxies  originated in tiny quantum fluctuations of a scalar field and of spacetime itself. For intuition, consider that quantum field fluctuations of significant amplitude normally occur only at very small length scales. Close to the big bang, during a brief initial period of nearly exponentially fast expansion (inflation), such smallwavelength but largeamplitude quantum fluctuations were stretched out to cosmological wavelengths. In this way, quantum fluctuations are thought to have seeded the observed inhomogeneities in the cosmic microwave background  which in turn seeded the condensation of hydrogen into galaxies and stars, all closely matching the increasingly accurate astronomical observations over recent years. The prerequisites for this course are a solid understanding of quantum theory and some basic knowledge of general relativity, such as FRW spacetimes.

Particle Physics
This course will cover phenomenological studies and experimental searches for new physics beyond the Standard Model, including: naturalness, extra dimension, supersymmetry, grand unification, dark matter candidates (WIMPs and axions) and their detection.


QFT III 2023/24
This survey course introduces some advanced topics in quantum field theory and string theory. Topics may include anomalies, conformal field theory, and bosonic string theory and are subject to change depending on the topics covered in the TBD elective course.

Cosmology 2023/24
This Cosmology course will provide a theoretical overview of the standard cosmological model.
Topics will include: FRW universe, Thermal History, Inflation, Cosmological Perturbation Theory, Structure Formation and Quantum Initial Conditions. 
Quantum Matter 2023/24
This course will cover quantum phases of matter, with a focus on longrange entangled states, topological states, and quantum criticality.

Dark Matter, First Light
New observational programs and techniques are opening a window to the first galaxies in the universe and bringing surprises along the way. In this workshop, we'll explore how dark matter phenomenology may have impacted the first stars and galaxies, focusing on how improved modeling and simulations can allow us to use new and upcoming highredshift data to gain insight into dark matter's fundamental nature.

Standard Model 2023/24
The Standard Model of particle physics is introduced, and reviewed, from a modern effective field theory perspective.

Gravitational Physics
The Gravitational Physics course takes your knowledge and practice of gravity to the next level. We start by recapping the essential elements of differential geometry, adding some new techniques to the toolbox, then apply some of these methods to learning about submanifolds, extra dimensions, and black hole thermodynamics. Towards the end of the course, we delve into the frontiers, with a sample of recent research topics.

Mathematical Physics  Core 2023/24
This course will introduce you to some of the geometrical structures underlying theoretical physics. Previous knowledge of differential geometry is not required. Topics covered in the course include: Introduction to manifolds, differential forms, symplectic manifolds, symplectic version of Noether’s theorem, integration on manifolds, fiber bundles, principal bundles and applications to gauge theory.
