Topology and Geometry in Physics

24. - 28. September 2001   in   Rot an der Rot



The autumn school covers applications of geometry and topology in physics. Each of the four speakers will give a lecture series (4 à 1.5 h) aiming at a graduate student audience. These lectures will start at an elementary level and develop the topic to the present status of knowledge. We would be happy to welcome everyone who is interested to participate.
