MMathPhys/MSc
(aka Oxford Theoretical Minimum, aka Oxford Part IV)
This is a new joint venture between Oxford Physics and the Maths Institute: a one-year Master Course in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, started in 2015. There are several plasma-core, plasma-related or plasma-recommended courses within this new programme:
KINETIC THEORY (P. Dellar, A. Schekochihin & J. Binney)
PERTURBATION METHODS (E. Gaffney)
QUANTUM PROCESSES IN HOT PLASMA (P. Norreys & S. Rose)
RADIATIVE PROCESSES & HIGH-ENERGY ASTROPHYSICS (G. Cotter)
ADVANCED FLUID DYNAMICS (A. Schekochihin & P. Dellar)
NON-EQUILIBRIUM STATISTICAL PHYSICS (R. Golestanian)
HIGH-ENERGY-DENSITY PHYSICS (P. Norreys & S. Rose)
DISC ACCRETION IN ASTROPHYSICS (P. Podsiadlowski)
COLLISIONLESS PLASMA PHYSICS (F. Parra)
COLLISIONAL PLASMA PHYSICS (F. Parra)
These courses are also offered to graduate students under the auspices
of the Centre for Postgraduate Training in Plasma Physics and
