    Seminar Series: Special Topics in String Theory

    "Special Topics in String Theory" Seminar Series at UCT by Jeff Murugan on Large N Gauge Theories

    I am pleased to announce that the "Special Topics in String Theory" Seminar Series will resume this year with a series of lectures by Jeff Murugan on Large N Gauge Theories. These lectures will be aimed at a slightly more general audience of theoretical / mathematical physics postgraduate students (and not exclusively at string theory students).

    The first of these lectures will take place this Friday 16 March from 9-10am in Room 207 in the Maths Building (the Applied Maths Honours Room). All are very welcome!

    Please note that, since Jeff is busy with tutorials on alternating Fridays, he has kindly agree to give one lecture on these Fridays, but two lectures on the other alternating Fridays. The preliminary schedule is as follows:

    Time: 9:00 - 10:00
    Day: Friday (16/03; 30/03; ...)
    Venue: Maths 207

    Time: 9:00 - 10:00 and 14:00 - 15:00
    Day: Friday (23/03; ...)
    Venue: Maths 207

    I shall, of course, keep you all informed as to any changes to these times and venues. I hope to see many of you in attendance on Friday.
