Particle Physics, Gravitational Physics and Mathematical Physics

This main research area covers the wide range of the structure of matter, from elementary particles to the largest structures in the universe.

In the context of mathematical physics, rigorous mathematical methods are used to study quantum systems with many degrees of freedom. This includes quantum field theory and quantum physics of highly correlated multi-particle systems, which will continue to be a focus of research in mathematical physics.

In the field of theoretical elementary particle physics, the research focus is particularly on aspects of quantum field theory and phenomenology in particle and astroparticle physics, as well as theoretical neutrino and flavour physics.

Gravitational physics studies the theory of black holes, cosmological singularities and the expansion of the universe, as well as mathematical and numeric examinations of Einstein's theory of gravitation. This research will face great challenges, particularly the experiments on gravitational waves that are running worldwide.
