Workshop on Symmetry on Physics and Mathematics for UG Teachers  Jan 14, 2020

COESME at IISER Pune has organised:

Intertwining Strands in Physics and Mathematics: Symmetry

A workshop for undergraduate teachers in Mathematics and Physics

See flyer

Dates: January 14-18, 2020

Venue: Madan Mohan Malaviya Hall, First floor, Guesthouse-cum Convention Centre, IISER Pune

About: While the deep relationship between Physics and Mathematics, where ideas from one have often  given very important  insights and applications in the other, ​ is very well-appreciated by the experts, this is often not adequately emphasized in the college level teaching of these subjects in India at B.Sc./M.Sc. level. The aim of this workshop will be to expose Indian teachers in mathematics and physics to these shared grounds. We will discuss the physical context of mathematical ideas, and vice versa, by taking Symmetries and Groups as an example.

There will be five mini courses of three lectures each and a special lecture. The speakers include eminent mathematicians and physicists (also from IISER Pune).

Topics: Basic concepts of symmetries and groups and their applications in Physics and Mathematics

Application Process: Click to apply online

Support: There are no registration fees. Selected participants will be provided local hospitality. Outstation participants will be reimbursed round trip 3-tier train fare (shortest route) from place of residence. Participants are expected to stay for the full duration of the workshop.

Organizers: Prof. Rohini Godbole (IISc Bengaluru), Prof. Deepak Dhar (IISER Pune) and Dr. Chandrasheel Bhagwat (IISER Pune)
