Topological Quantum Field Theory Seminar   RSS

10/04/2013, 11:30 — 12:30 — Room P4.35, Mathematics Building
John Huerta, Instituto Superior Técnico


This series of lectures will be a gentle introduction to quantum field theory for mathematicians. In our first lecture, we give a lightning introduction to quantum mechanics and discuss the simplest quantum system: the harmonic oscillator. We then sketch how this system is used to quantize the free scalar field.
Note: room 4.35 is on the 4th floor at the end of the main corridor
