Description of Research

This research topic covers a broad spectrum of fields within theoretical physics with a strong emphasis on mathematical aspects and tools. One focus is on statistical physics from classical statistical physics through granular matter to quantum statistical physics. Theoretical and computational aspects of phase transitions and non equilibrium phenomena are both investigated. Further central aspects are quantum field theory in curved and/or non-commutative spacetimes, gravity in higher dimensions and gauge-gravity duality. The methods used here range from the theory of partial differential operators, operator algebras and representation theory, and functional analysis to numerical computer-assisted computations in lattice gauge theories.
