The concepts of topology, symmetries, symmetry breaking, and phase transition are central in many modern topics ranging from condensed matter and molecular chemistry to elementary particle physics and cosmology. This school is the second in a series of summer schools on the interface between these fields (last year's school). It focuses on these common concepts and aims to deepen their understanding. The lectures cover the theoretical background as well as applications in all fields.
