Public Lecture

  • Nathan Seiberg (IAS)

Scientific Organizers: Tom Hartman (Cornell), Leonardo Rastelli (YITP, Stony Brook University), Nathan Seiberg (IAS) and Xi Yin (Harvard)

Local TASI Organizer: Tom Degrand

The program will consist of a pedagogical series of lectures and seminars. Lectures will be given over a four-week period, three or four lectures per day, Monday through Friday. The audience will be composed primarily of advanced theoretical graduate students. Experimentalists with a strong background in theory are also encouraged to apply. Some post-doctoral fellows will be admitted, but preference will be given to applicants who will not have received their Ph.D. before 2019. The minimum background needed to get full benefit of TASI is a knowledge of quantum field theory (including RGEs) and familiarity with the Standard Model. Some familiarity with SUSY would be helpful. We hope to provide some subsidy, but students will need partial support from other sources. Rooms, meals, and access to all facilities will be provided at reasonable rates in beautifully located dormitories at the University of Colorado.

Applying to TASI

The Application form will be available in January 2019. Applicants must submit a completed application and arrange for two professional letters of recommendation be submitted to TASI. Applicants may send potential recommenders a link to the TASI Recommendation form to submit letters.

All forms and letters are due by March 1, 2019.
