Abstract

The Pauli Center for Theoretical Studies (formerly known as the CTS) is jointly organized by the Institutes of Theoretical Physics at ETH and the University of Zuerich. It aims to foster teaching and research in theoretical physics and related subjects in the Zuerich area. The purpose of the Pauli Center is to bring scientists from all over the world to come to Zuerich, to interact with local and other visiting scientists, and to enrich the graduate education. More specically the Pauli Center organizes thematic programs of a few months' duration, as well as shorter workshops. It also invites scientists to come to Zuerich for collaborative visits and to teach graduate courses. Topics that will be covered include mathematical physics including string theory, astrophysics and cosmology, particle theory, condensed matter physics, computational physics and quantum information theory. In this proposal we outline activities involving visitors from abroad who are specialists in these areas. The Pauli Center has had a very successful year 2009, having hosted ten workshops as well as a large number of high profile visitors. The new structure that was instituted in 2008, including a local management board as well as an international advisory board, is functioning very well. With a view to broaden the activities, and to bring new areas of research to Zuerich, the Pauli Center has recently begun to encourage more actively Swiss researchers from outside Zuerich to get involved in the activities of the Center.
