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 largescale 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:
 Phenomenology of Fundamental Interactions
 Cosmology
 Hadronic Physics and Nuclear Astrophysics
 Quantum Fields and String Theory
 Statistical Field Theory
 Mathematical Physics
 Turbulence and Complex Fluids
Our group includes INFN research staff, as well as academic associates and PhD students from the University of Genova:
