# Seminars

In our College self-study is compulsory, which is carried out by seminars in each semester satisfying the interest of the membership. For those of our members who held a seminar presentation will be rewarded with scholarship. If you reach the minimum number of participants, you can organize a seminar in almost any topic, in the field of physics and mathematics. If you have any interest about a seminar, or may wish to start a new seminar to find the people with similar interests to you or even teach them to develop your performer skill, check out our __Admission page!__

## Lie algebras seminar:

Lie algebras as algebraic structures often appear at different areas of physics. On the one hand the quantum mechanical CCR algebras or the well-known spin SU algebras, on the other hand the most complex theory which describes nature, the Standard Modell is also based on the theory of Lie algebras. With the development of quantum mechanics the development of the theory of Lie algebras was also motivated by theoretical physicists. This is the achievement of well-known matematicians such as Schur, Weyl, Killing and Cartan mentioning the most importants. The classification of Lie algebras was terminated by the beginning of the 20th century. Our aim is to prove Cartan's criterion by the end of the course.

## Programming seminar:

The technical development allow us to use our computers for scientific research in a way that physicists have never been dreaming of. Nowadays we can manage complicated calculations with the help of computers so simulations are good devices for physicists to know more about nature. Besides theoretical and experimental physics a new branch is appearing called simulation physics. Our seminar contains the most important assembly languages, methods and systems not sufficiently mentioned at University education. Our members give lectures to each other containing their experiences and good ideas. We put a great emphasis to technical applications and we solve many practical examples.

**Location:** Department of Theoretical Physics, seminar room

**Date:** Monday, 4-6 pm

**Responsible:** Ujfalusi László, ujfalusilaci at gmail dot com

**Lecturer:** Variable

Planned topics:

- Linux systems and their use

- Usage of Linux servers

- Mathematica

- Python

- C++

- clean coding, version control

- MATLAB GUI

- GPU programming

- Academic C and Fortran libraries

- Figure making, function fitting

- and all that you would like :)

## Training for talented students:

Particularly this seminar is for freshmen. Our aim is to improve the most talented students' problem-solving skills by tricky and complex exercises selected from different competitions. We make an effort to present problems which were not sufficiently mentioned at lectures. In addition we try to answer to the questions held up at lectures too.

**Responsible:** Werner Miklós Antal, werner at phy dot bme dot hu

**Lecturer:** Konczer József

**Time, Place:**Th 16:15-18:00, H27

## Biophysics seminar:

The biophysics seminar is for students interested in medical appliances of physics. The give lectures to each other from the basic theory of biophysics. We invite researchers from the field of radiobiology, radiotherapy and image construction. They welcome students, interested in these topics, completing a thesis or do some research. In the end of the seminar we visit a laboratory selected by the participants.

**Responsible:** Papp Ildikó, papp dot ildiko1987 at gmail dot com
