# PSI Lectures/BlockList

This page is under construction. Content is likely to be revised significantly in the near future. |

PSI consists of four phases of coursework and a short research project. The course will advance:

Preparatory topics: mathematical tools, numerical methods and theoretical physics concepts relevant for the subsequent phases of courses Core Topics: foundational graduate-level subjects, including quantum theory, general relativity, quantum field theory, statistical physics, and condensed matter Review courses: modern topics from fields such as cosmology, particle physics, gravitational physics, string theory, quantum information and condensed matter. Explorations courses: cutting-edge research topics from various specialized fields. [link]

## Front courses (2009-now)[edit | edit source]

Does It worth getting some standard courses out of this list. Like QFT, GR, QM etc? Not sure. The sorting is pretty sufficient.

This list majorly includes Front and Core courses, the Review and other Sections are not included. Also some years were omitted partially or completely. For instance, Core courses for 2013-2016 are not included. Also there is some strange list of the courses in the construction zone

## Construction Zone (will mention only courses not included above)[edit | edit source]

### 2018-2019 (in progress) -- these courses are not yet included into the tables above[edit | edit source]

- STRANGELY, UNIQUE REFERENCE, DOES NOT APPEAR IN THE LISTS (yet the collection looks to be empty)-- PIRSA:C18022 - PSI 2018/2019 - Quantum Theory (Branczyk and Dupuis)

### 2017-2018 -- these courses are not yet included into the tables above[edit | edit source]
