Theoretical Physics (Group 4)

Theoretical physics aims to develop mathematical models that can quantitatively describe natural phenomena. This endeavour requires a deep understanding of the laws physics in different contexts: from the tiniest constituents of matter, to the large-scale structure of the universe; from the study of complex systems, to the mathematical structure behind physical theories.  This diversity is reflected by the wide range of research interests of our group:

Our group includes INFN research staff, as well as academic associates and PhD students from the University of Genova:

Andrea Amoretti Statistical Field Theory
