Overview

http://mrsec.uchicago.edu/outcomes-graduate-education


This conference will celebrate the immense range of activities in theoretical science that have their foundations in the basic principles of statistical and condensed matter physics, ranging from biology to computer science.

On Friday October 5th, as a satellite to this conference, we have arranged to have two tutorial lectures for students and postdocs on the renormalization group taught by Amy Kolan from St. Olaf College and Marcelo Magnasco from Rockefeller University.
