- Statistical Physics
- Complex systems and complex networks
- Chaos and nonlinear systems
- Non-equilibrium quantum dynamics
Statistical mechanical problems include the behavior of spin glasses and other complex systems, magnetism of classical and quantum spin systems, critical phenomena.
The area of complex system and chaos includes the study of non trivial properties of social, technological, biological or epidemiological complex networks.
Finally, the study of non-equilibrium quantum systems embraces phenomena such as Bose-Einstein condensation, quantum simulation of exotic phases of matter, complex dynamics of fermionic and bosonic particles, application to quantum technology.
In all of these endeavors the theory group enjoys close contact with the other groups of the Physics Department and in related departments on campus as well as at the national and international level.
