Theoretical Physics

Welcome to the Theoretical Physics Group

The Theoretical Physics Group works on problems in non-equilibrium biophysics, the dynamics of complex fluids, the electronic properties of materials, many body quantum phenomena and quantum information science. The group has a breadth of expertise in materials modelling, in particular in molecular dynamics and electronic structure calculations. There is extensive collaboration with experimental groups working on both hard condensed matter and bio-/soft matter.

The Theoretical Physics group looks after the Mathematics and Physics joint honours undergraduate course.
