## Scientific Talks

Upcoming talks, topics not yet decided:

- Workshop "Mean-Field and other Effective Models in Mathematical Physics", Fondation Les Treilles (May 2019)
- Conference "Dynamics, Equations and Applications" (DEA 2019), session D41 on Mathematical physics, Kraków (September 2019)

We calculate the correlation energy of the mean-field Fermi gas by bosonizing collective particle-hole pair excitations; this makes the random phase approximation rigorous as an upper bound.

## Undergraduate Studies: Seminar Talks

In a 2+1 dimensional nonlinear Sigma model with Hopf term there exist
topological excitations (skyrmions), which can have arbitrary spin (not
necessarily integer or half-integer) and arbitrary quantum statistics
(arbitrary phases under permutation
of particles). Skyrmions have be found in experiments, see e.g. X. Z. Yu et al.

A short theoretical introduction to this interesting topic can be found
in the book "Quantum Field Theory" by Kerson Huang (Wiley 1998) in the
chapter on topological excitations.
