Statistical physics III

This course introduces statistical field theory, and uses concepts related to phase transitions to discuss a variety of complex systems (random walks and polymers, disordered systems, combinatorial optimisation, information theory and error correcting codes).

Physics of random and disordered systems

Introduction to the physics of random processes and disordered systems, providing an overview over phenomena, concepts and theoretical approaches Topics include: Random walks; Roughening/pinning; Localization; Random matrix theory; Spin glasses; Disorder and critical phenomena
