International Max Planck Research School for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory (IMPRS)


The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory addresses fundamental questions about the nature of classical and quantum gravity and its links to the fundamental constituents of matter. The research is purely theoretical and brings together some of the most exciting challenges of modern physics and mathematics. The school started operating in January 2016 and replaces the previous IMPRS for Geometric Analysis, Gravitation and String Theory.
