Recent developments in Large N, Holography and Complexity
10 - 16 January 2024
Stanley Mandelstam was an eminent South African-born American Theoretical Physicist and a Wits graduate. He made seminal contributions to Particle Physics and String Theory. This series of schools, named in Stanley Mandelstam’s honour, aims to expose local South African Theoretical Physicists, both post-graduate students and academics, to exciting recent developments in Theoretical High Energy Physics. The School is followed by a high-level workshop that aims to stimulate discussion and interaction which might lead to new research directions and collaborations. The meeting brings leading experts together to accomplish these goals.
Venue: Wits University
We have number of international plenary lecturers who will each deliver two pedagogical talks (aimed at graduate students) and one technical talk at the School. Each lecture will last for 50 minutes. The workshop will be used for cutting edge research talks, both by the School lecturers and by international and local participants. The loose format of the school leaves plenty of time for discussion and collaboration.
