Dynamical mean-field theory
Antoine Georges (Flatiron Institute & Collège de France)
Gabriel Kotliar (Rutgers University & Brookhaven National Laboratory) 

In this series, methods that have become fundamental tools in computational physics and chemistry are presented by their originators at a level appropriate for master and graduate students. The lectures are followed by an interview: we ask our guests to recall for us the period, problems, people and circumstances that accompanied the creation of milestone methods and algorithms that we now routinely use. 

Join us to share this exciting opportunity to learn first-hand from our pioneers and get to know better the genesis of work that is now recorded in books!
