This course is an introduction to some of the most exciting ideas in fundamental physics. The topics are chosen to represent areas of research currently conducted at Perimeter Institute. Each topic will be discussed for one or two weeks and will be lectured by a leading young researcher in each field. From deep conceptual issues on the meaning of quantum theory, passing through very sophisticated theories like string theory and loop quantum gravity all the way to cosmology and quantum information theory, this course is a challenging intellectual adventure.
