Three VR Grants to Nordita

Nordita WINQ Fellow Soon Hoe Lim was awarded a four-year VR starting grant "Randomness in Dynamical Systems and Machine Learning". Theoretical and empirical advances in modern machine learning and AI have been informed by the state-of-the-art developments in multiple disciplines such as mathematics. The main object of Soon Hoe's project is to investigate the roles of randomness in learning with modern neural networks through the lens of dynamical systems.

Nordita Professor Konstantin Zarembo was awarded a four-year VR project grant "What Happens With Quantum Fields at Strong Coupling". The strong coupling behaviour of quantum fields is recognized as an important but very complicated problem. Konstantin's project will address this with the help of large-N expansion, holographic duality and integrability methods.

Nordita Director Niels Obers was awarded a four-year VR project grant "Emergent Spacetime from Non-Relativistic Holography". The aim of Niels' project is to make foundational contributions towards a quantum description of black holes and more generally the emergence of spacetime by extending and deepening our understanding of holography.

Nordita has Moved to a New Building

From Monday, March 8, 2021, Nordita operates from a new building on the new campus area Albano in Northern Stockholm. The building is only 500 m away from the three old Nordita buildings on the AlbaNova campus, where Nordita moved in January 2007 from Copenhagen.

We share the building with an experimental materials science group from KTH Royal Institute of Technology and a group from the Astronomy Department of Stockholm University.

Nordita Winter School 2022 - Waves in Astrophysics

January 10-14, 2022

Every year Nordita organizes a winter school on subtopics in theoretical physics. In 2022, the topic is Waves in Astrophysics. The role of waves in astrophysical context cannot be overemphasized. The aim of the school is to focus on the fundamentals of waves in plasma and gravitational waves. The school is open to all PhD and post-docs, as well as advanced masters students in physics and astronomy in all the Nordic and baltic countries. Astronomy students whose main focus in observational astronomy are also welcome.

Further information and application.

Nordic Winter School on Particle Physics and Cosmology

January 19-24, 2022

Nordic Winter School aims to introduce Ph.D. and advanced Master's students to current exciting topics in particle physics and cosmology, and take place at the Thon Hotel Skeikampen, approximately 40 kilometers north of Lillehammer (200 km north of Oslo). This year, the school has a particular focus on gravitational physics and the science behind gravitational wave analysis.

Further information and application.

Masters of Science Programme in Theoretical Physics

Two-year MSc programme in Physics at the University of Iceland, in partnership with Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics.

The programme aims to provide students with up-to-date knowledge of contemporary physics in the main areas of astrophysics, condensed matter physics, and high-energy physics, as well as solid training in applying mathematical and numerical tools widely used in these fields. The programme also offers a course to develop professional skills such as writing and presenting scientific content.

Coronavirus information

As of end of September, 2021 the restrictions to mostly work from home have been lifted and researchers and administrative staff have been invited to return to Nordita, and we are also accepting visitors again. We will keep monitoring the situation closely and expect that all people entering Nordita premises are either fully vaccinated or else carry a recent negative PCR test and/or have been tested positive (more than 2 weeks and less than 12 months).

We are currently in the process of scheduling part of the scientific programs and conferences that were scheduled for 2020 and 2021, during the year of 2022.

Note also that we have a new deadline for programs to be held in 2023 (application deadline Dec. 6, 2021).

The Organic Materials Database

The OMDB is an open access electronic structure database for 3-dimensional organic crystals, developed and hosted at Nordita.
