# Johannes Walcher

As a Mathematical Physicist, I am interested in understanding both how the world works, and what this means in abstract terms. I am currently Professor at Heidelberg University, work at the Institute for Mathematics, teach at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, and also supervise students from the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

## Current Teaching

In the Winter Semester 2024/25 I am teaching the beginner level class Höhere Mathematik 1

for physics students. Ondra Hulik, Valdo Tatischeff and I are offering an advanced course on Symmetries in classical and quantum field theory

. The Rhind Seminar continues as before.
