Philosophy of Physics

This reading group focuses on the foundations of modern physics and addresses conceptual, formal, and philosophical problems. In WS16, we will focus on the topic of Quantum Field Theory.

Quantum Field Theory plays a crucial role in modern physics, lying behind the enormous predictive success of the Standard Model. Our goal in this group is to help each other develop a grasp of this theory, despite its formal complexity. Update: For the dates of the meetings please have a look at the mcmp event calender.
