Quantum fields, fluids and information

Research group in theoretical physics at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Friedrich Schiller University Jena. The group was previously located at Heidelberg University, and some group members currently still work there.

Research interests


You can find publications on Inspire HEP or on arXiv or also on Google Scholars.

Getting involved

There are very interesting physics questions to be investigated concerning the dynamics of quantum fields, emerging fluid dynamics and relations to information theory. Research touches here upon the most fundamental concepts of nature but also helps to answer many concrete practical questions. If you are a highly motivated student with a very good knowldege and strong passion for theoretical physics there are possibilites to get involved in the context of a Bachelor-, Master- or Doctoral thesis. Please contact the group members for more information.
