# Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics

Modave2015
13-18 September 2015
Modave, Belgium

The Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics is organized by Belgian PhD students. The aim is to study tools useful for research in theoretical physics of fundamental interactions, generally supposed to be known but too seldom explained in details. The school consists of a series of courses (in English) delivered in an informal and relaxed atmosphere, encouraging the participants to interact with the speakers. The courses are aimed at young graduate students and therefore begin with the basics, are synthetic and overall self-contained.

1- 5 September 2014
Modave, Belgium

The Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics is organized by enthusiastic PhD students from Belgian universities (ULB, VUB, KUL and UGent) for other young PhD students or post-docs from all around the globe. The main goal is to present pedagogical lectures on different topics in theoretical physics, ranging from introductory to advanced subjects.

The lectures of the tenth edition were centered around two subjects: cosmology and exact results in QFT. The specific topics that were selected, were: Introduction to modern cosmology, QFT on de Sitter space, Analysis of Planck data, Matrix/vector models and large N limits, N=2 SUSY, SUSY on curved space and Introduction to quantum integrability.

Modave 2013
September 1-7, 2013
Modave, Belgium

The aim of the Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics is to study recent topics in theoretical physics of fundamental interactions. In practice, the school consists of a series of lectures, supposed to begin with the basics, be synthetic and as self-contained as possible.
The Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics is organized by PhD students from belgian universities (ULB,VUB,KUL) exclusively for PhD students and post-docs, and is supported by the International Solvay Institutes.
Lectures of this ninth edition of the school presented in these proceedings include:
Introduction to Black Hole Evaporation, Localization and supersymmetry on curved space, Entanglement entropy, Holographic superconductors, and Physics from the S-matrix: Scattering Amplitudes without Lagrangians.

Modave VIII
26th august - 1st september 2012
Modave, Belgium

The Modave Summer School in Mathematical Physics is organized by enthusiastic PhD students from Belgian universities (ULB, VUB, KUL) for other young PhD students or post-docs from all around Europe. The main goal is to present introductory and pedagogical lectures on theoretical physic topics, ranging from basics to research subjects.

The topics presented in these proceedings of the Eighth edition are: Introduction to Conformal Field Theories, Thermodynamics of String Gas, Higher Spin Theory, Introduction to Universality and Renormalisation Group Techniques and Duality Symmetric Approaches to String and M-theo
