Les Houches Summer School Lecture Notes

The Les Houches School is the world's best-known school in Physics, with sessions aimed at advanced graduate students and postdoctoral researchers. The school has a long tradition dating back to 1951, making it the longest-established and most prestigious organization of its kind.

A number of distinct sessions are organized every year, including in particular two longer-lasting summer schools organized by leaders in the field and featuring lecturers selected from the world's leading academics.

Embracing Open Access and striving for seamless worldwide dissemination of its top-quality didactic material, the Les Houches Physics School has taken the initiative to have its series of lecture notes published by SciPost.

Each individual school's sets of lecture notes are to be submitted to our journal SciPost Physics Lecture Notes, and are thereafter subjected to our thorough peer-witnessed refereeing process. Once accepted and published as citable versions of record, these papers are then arranged in a special thematic Collection grouping all the lecture notes of a given school.

As per all SciPost publication venues, publications in SciPost Physics Lecture Notes (Les Houches Series) are fully-fledged scientific publications enjoying all the benefits of SciPost's Genuine Open Access services and infrastructure, including among others free access for readers, no publication fee for authors, and a CC-BY Open Access license with copyright to authors.
