Abstract

The Pauli Center for Theoretical Studies is jointly organised by the Institute of Theoretical Physics at ETH Zürich and the Physics Institute at the University of Zürich. It aims to foster teaching and research in theoretical physics and related areas in the Zürich area. The purpose of the Pauli Center is to bring scientists from all over the world to come to Zürich, to interact with local scientists, and to enrich the graduate education.More specifically the Pauli Center organises thematic programs, conferences and workshops. It also invites scientists to come to Zürich for collaborative visits and to teach graduate courses. Topics that will be covered are mathematical physics including string theory, astrophysics and cosmology, particle theory, condensed matter physics, computational science and quantum information theory. In this proposal we outline activities involving visitors from abroad who are specialists in these areas. The Pauli Center has organised on average seven to eight workshops or conferences a year from its reorganisation in 2008 until 2015. The center has also hosted a large number of high profile visitors, see http://www.paulicenter.ch/ for an account of past, present and future activities. We have been reviewed three times by our international advisory board, and these reports have attested that the center runs very successfully.
