About us


 There are three major research areas at the Department of the Theoretical Physics: quantum field theory, particle and heavy ion physics and gravitation. Part of the research is directly related to ongoing experiments of heavy ions, particle physics (LHC, RHIC) and gravitational wave detection (VIRGO).

The list of current research topics includes the following: phenomenological and theoretical study on relativistic heavy ion collisions including hadronization of quark matter, quark-gluon plasma as perfect fluid, properties of hot and dense nuclear matter; phenomenology of particle spectra; non-extensive thermodynamics; viscous relativistic hydrodynamics; integrable classical and quantum field theories; quantum symmetries; extended objects in field theories; strong gravitational fields; gravitational radiation of compact binary systems; analytical and numerical studies of Einstein’s equations, problems related to gravitational wave detection.
