Prospective students

We are always on the lookout for prospective Ph.D. and Masters students. Interested students should contact AmosOren or Shlomo.

String theory is a rapidly growing field which incorporates many fields of physics and mathematics. As such, in the first few years of graduate study students are urged to take several courses which provide the backbone of string theory and quantum field theory in general. A suggested schedule for graduate students is as follows: (note that string theory is given every other third year and geometrical methods and group theory are given on alternating years)
