The 5th BLTP International School “Advanced Methods of Modern Theoretical Physics: Integrable and Stochastic Systems”
Education, 14 August 2017
The International School “Advanced Methods of Modern Theoretical Physics: Integrable and Stochastic Systems” was held at JINR International Conference Centre on 6 – 12 August 2017. The event was organized by the Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics jointly with the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences of the Czech Technological University (Prague), the International Laboratory of Representation Theory and Mathematical Physics of Higher School of Economics (Moscow) and the JINR University Centre. The school is a project of Czech professors of JINR and has been held at the institute annually since 2013.
This year the school comprised 55 students from six countries: the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Belarus, India, Russia and Ukraine. Throughout the week the students listened to lectures in English, held by eminent scientists. The school programme covered the problems of quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, statistical mechanics and a number of other issues of theoretical physics.
Among the professors holding lectures at the school there were scientists from JINR as well as specialists from partner organizations: Max Planck Institutes in Potsdam and Garching (Germany), the Higher School of Economics in Moscow (Russia) and the Czech Technological University in Prague (Czech Republic).
The School took place for the fifth time and proved its efficiency. Jan Fuksa, a Czech participant of the 2014 School is currently a promising researcher in the field of theoretical physics. After the school, he took part in collaborative works together with Russian and German scientists at JINR and is currently working on his dissertation in Prague.
JINR hopes that the Schools being held at the Institute will continue to attract young people who are interested in the problems of theoretical physics and will serve as a springboard in their own scientific careers.
