geo-Q RTG Lecture Weeks


Lecture Weeks are one of several methods we offer for all of our PhD students and post-docs. We offer three lecture weeks a year in various attractive places. The topics range from the understanding of the basics of special and general relativity, the basic knowledge on satellites-building and control, basics on geodesy concept, data analysis methods and underlying statistics, basic knowledge on clocks, quantum optics, matter wave interferometers and laser interferometers.
