PSI 2024: Symmetries, Redundancies, and Dynamics


Symmetries and Gauge Redundancies are two cornerstones for modern quantum field theories that purport to describe the fundamental laws of nature. The gauge principle offers indispensable structures underlying particle physics and string theories while symmetries allow us to extract many otherwise-impossible properties of strongly interacting quantum system. This year, PSI aims at key examples of how symmetries and gauge redundancies are handled and employed, both classically and at quantum level.
