Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Master in Mathematical Physics at Hamburg University

Posted by Urs Schreiber

Starting in fall 2009, Hamburg University will offer a research oriented master program leading to the degree of a Master in Mathematical Physics.

The program is taught by researchers of the Mathematics and Physics department of Hamburg University and the theory group of DESY. It aims at students holding a bachelor degree in mathematics or physics and prepares in particular for PhD programs in mathematics and physics.

The program is comprised of a one year course including lectures on:

- Differential Geometry

- Topology

- Lie Theory

- Homological Algebra

- Complex Algebraic Geometry

- Quantum Field Theory

- String Theory

- Conformal Field Theory

- Supersymmetry and Unification

- General Relativity

and a second year of individually supervised research. The courses offered are under annual review, please consult the webpage for up-to-date information.

For more information, including deadlines, see here.

A pdf-sheet with more information is here.

This announcement itself in pdf-form is here.

Re: Master in Mathematical Physics at Hamburg University

This looks great. Are there any funding opportunities?

Re: Master in Mathematical Physics at Hamburg University

There is no funding specifically organized with this program, but the general option for students who would like to come to Germany is to apply for some kind of scholarship with

DAAD – German Academic Exchange Service.

Maybe go to that webpage and see in the menu on the left the item “support” \to “scholarship database”.

Those for which this would be a serious option should apply very soon, as it is maybe already a bit late given the start of the Master program, unfortunately.
