Research at the department
Department of Mathematics and Physics conducts research into mathematics, statistics and physics.
Algebraic geometry is a branch of mathematics which classically is devoted to the study of solutions of polynomial equations in several variables, so called algebraic varieties.
The field of complex analysis focuses on the study of calculus involving the complex numbers.
Research activities within the materials science group focus on the structure and dynamics of novel materials.
In its broadest sense, mathematical physics may be construed as the application of rigorous mathematical methods to problems in physics.
The mathematical statistics group concentrates on the following research fields: Statistical modeling of meteorological processes, Analysis of time to event data, Statistical processes control, Medical statistics, Computational Statistics, Econometric time series analysis.
Many of the research activities in this group concern fundamental matter and charting out the different phases that may exist; the types of phase transitions that may have taken place in the early Universe and which could be reproduced in particle collider experiments.
