Lay Summary (English)

Lead
Lay summary
The Centre for Theoretical Studies (CTS) is jointly organised by the Institutes of Theoretical Physics at ETH and the University of Zurich. It aims to foster teaching and research in theoretical physics and related subjects in the Zurich area. The purpose of the CTS is to bring scientists from all over the world to come to Zurich, to interact with local and other visiting scientists, and to enrich the graduate education. More specifically the CTS organises thematic programs of a few months' duration, as well as shorter workshops. It also invites scientists to come to Zurich for collaborative visits and to teach graduate courses. It covers a wide range of topics: Mathematical Physics (including String Theory), Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, Computational Physics as well as High Energy Physics.
