Mathematical Methods of Quantum Mechanics

Research topics

We apply geometric, functional-analytic, algebraic, and operator-theoretic methods to the study of models and problems of relevance for quantum mechanics, mainly arising from solid state physics and and theoretical physics.
  • Many-body quantum dynamics and effective non-linear Schrödinger equations
  • Multi-scale methods and emergent effects in quantum systems

Geometry and Mathematical Physics

Purpose of the PhD Course

The PhD program in Geometry and Mathematical Physics focuses on the study of analytic and geometric aspects of physical phenomena that are of fundamental interest in both pure and applied sciences and covers wide spectrum of topics in modern algebraic and differential geometry and their applications.

Geometry and Mathematical Physics

Mathematical Physics and Geometry are among the most rapidly developing branches of Pure and Applied Mathematics. The core activity of the SISSA group focuses on topics which are attracting a wide interest from the international scientific community.
