GGI lectures on the theory of fundamental interactions

7-24 January 2014
Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics Firenze

The lectures are primarily addressed to Ph.D. students in Theoretical Particle Physics. Participation of experimentalists
and post-docs is also encouraged. The aim of the school is to give a pedagogical introduction to the basic concepts and tools needed for research, covering the foundations of the subject at a deep and advanced level. Presentations will be given on the blackboard.

The courses will be officially part of the Italian Ph.D. training program for the universities that have joined
the initiative. For this purpose there will be the possibility of a final exam with the lecturers.

Deadline for application: 15 November 2013
Late applications may be also considered.
