The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics has resources to support visitors from other institutions, for example, to collaborate with local Researchers or to give graduate lectures. Frequent visitors may be nominated as Higgs Centre Affiliates or Associates.
Our Visiting Researcher scheme is now open to applications throughout the year. We therefore invite applications for visitors to come to the Higgs Centre for the purpose of fostering or continuing collaboration. Funding for accommodation and travel expenses is available. We particularly encourage applications from PhD students and early stage researchers. Visits may be co-ordinated with visits of existing Associates or Affiliates.
Visits should be in conjunction with a local host, who should complete the visitor form, including a host statement detailing the potential benefit of the visit and the strength of the visitor. If appropriate, an email address for a referee for the visitor may be included (e.g. a PhD supervisor or senior collaborator).
The purpose of this visit is to discuss with the members of the statistical physics and complexity group at the Higgs Centre, in particular Martin Evans and Richard Blythe, together with experts in field-theoretical methods, in particular Arjun Berera. Prof Canet will give a series of lectures on the following subject: The non-perturbative renormalisation group and its applications to statistical physics: from the Ising model to turbulence.
