Special Topics in Physics  QFT2: Quantum Electrodynamics (Cliff Burgess)
This course uses quantum electrodynamics (QED) as a vehicle for covering several more advanced topics within quantum field theory, and so is aimed at graduate students that already have had an introductory course on quantum field theory. Among the topics hoped to be covered are: gauge invariance for massless spin1 particles from special relativity and quantum mechanics; Ward identities; photon scattering and loops; UV and IR divergences and why they are handled differently; effective theories and the renormalization group; anomalies.

PSI 2019/2020  Classical Physics (Kubiznak)
PSI 2019/2020  Classical Physics (Kubiznak) 
Relativity (2022/2023)
This is an introductory course on general relativity (GR). We shall cover the basics of differential geometry and its applications to Einstein’s theory of gravity. The plan is to discuss black holes, gravitational waves, and observational evidence for GR, as well as to cover some of the more advanced topics. 
Classical Physics (2022/2023)
This is a theoretical physics course that aims to review the basics of theoretical mechanics, special relativity and classical field theory, with the emphasis on geometrical notions and relativistic formalism.

Statistical Physics (2022/2023)
The course begins by discussing several topics in equilibrium statistical physics including phase transitions and the renormalization group. The second part of the course covers nonequilibrium statistical physics including kinetics of aggregation, spin dynamics, population dynamics, and complex networks.

Quantum Field Theory II (2022/2023)
The course has three parts. In the first part of the course, the path integral formulation of nonrelativistic quantum mechanics and the functional integral formulation of quantum field theory are developed. The second part of the course covers renormalization and the renormalization group. Finally, nonabelian gauge theories are quantized using functional integral techniques.

Quantum Field Theory I (2022/2023)
The course starts by looking for a quantum theory that is compatible with special relativity, without assuming fields are fundamental. Nevertheless fields turn out to be a very good, maybe inevitable mathematical tool for formulating and studying such a relativistic quantum theory. The second part of the course introduces the Dirac theory and canonically quantizes it. It also quantizes the Maxwell field theory. The Feynman diagram technique for perturbation theory is developed and applied to the scattering of relativistic fermions and photons. Renormalization of quantum electrodynamics is done to oneloop order.
Prerequisite: PSI Quantum Theory course or equivalently Graduate level Quantum Mechanics and QFT of scalar theory

Quantum Theory (20222023)
This course on quantum mechanics is divided in two parts:
The aim of the first part is to review the basis of quantum mechanics. The course aims to provide an overview of the perturbation theory to handle perturbations in quantum systems. Time evolution of quantum systems using the Schrodinger, Heisenberg and interaction pictures will be covered. Basics of quantum statistical mechanics for distinguishable particles, bosons, and fermions will be covered. A brief overview of density matrix approach and quantum systems interacting with the environment will be given.
The second part of the course is an introduction to scalar quantum field theory. The Feynman diagram technique for perturbation theory is developed and applied to the scattering of relativistic particles. Renormalization is briefly discussed. 
Strong Gravity (2021/2022)
This course will introduce some advanced topics in general relativity related to describing gravity in the strong field and dynamical regime. Topics covered include properties of spinning black holes, black hole thermodynamics and energy extraction, how to define horizons in a dynamical setting, formulations of the Einstein equations as constraint and evolution equations, and gravitational waves and how they are sourced. 
Cosmology (2021/2022)
This class is an introduction to cosmology. We'll cover expansion history of the universe, thermal history, dark matter models, and as much cosmological perturbation theory as time permits. 
Machine Learning (2021/2022)
This course is designed to introduce modern machine learning techniques for studying classical and quantum manybody problems encountered in condensed matter, quantum information, and related fields of physics. Lectures will focus on introducing machine learning algorithms and discussing how they can be applied to solve problem in statistical physics. Tutorials and homework assignments will concentrate on developing programming skills to study the problems presented in lecture. 
Quantum Gravity (20212022)
Topics will include (but are not limited to): Canonical formulation of constrained systems, The Dirac program, First order formalism of gravity, Loop Quantum Gravity, Spinfoam models, Research at PI and other approaches to quantum gravity.
