Theoretical Physics of Soft Condensed Matter:

With a special interest in the fields of

  • Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics
  • Complex Structures
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Biophysics
  • Nonlinear Dynamics
  • Anomalous Diffusion

For instance, we study

  • Jamming, Glassy Dynamics, and Gels
  • Soft Quasicrystals
  • Neural Networks in Soft Matter Physics
  • Patchy Colloids
  • Active Particles
  • Motility of Bacteria
  • Problems of Physics Competetitions (e.g. GPT/IPT)

As methods, we use

  • Simulations (Brownian Dynamics, Molecular Dynamics, Metropolis-Monte-Carlo, Event-Chain Methods, Neural Networks...)
  • Phase Field Crystal Models
  • Fundamental Meassure Theory (as Classical Density Functional Theory)
  • Lévy-Walks and Lévy-Flights

Master or Bachelor theses, research projects for Physics Advanced:

  • Topics for Master or Bachelor theses as well as for projects for Physics Advanced are available.
