Welcome to the homepage of Georg Bergner.

Currently I am leading a DFG funded research project at the University of Jena. The project considers lattice simulations of strongly interacting gauge theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. The central aim is to derive a better understanding of strongly interacting theories and non-perturbative phenomena like confinement. In addition the investigated theories provide interesting candidates for extensions of the Standard Model, which try to explain unresolved puzzles like the existence of Dark Matter. My research projects are also connected to String Theory and Gauge/Gravity Duality.

I received my Habilitation at the University of Münster and I am still affiliated as a Privatdozent at the Institute of Theoretical Physics in Münster.

My last position has been at the Albert Einstein Center for Fundamental Physics at the University of Bern. In Bern I have extended my studies of theories at finite temperature and density and investigated specific algorithms for the simulations at fixed cannonical sectors. In addition I have investigated low dimensional supersymmetric gauge theories.

During my former position as a Post Doc at the University of Frankfurt I have started investigations of QCD at finite temperature and density in the research group of Prof. Dr. Owe Philipsen. These have been based on effective models, that are a useful tool to understand the corresponding state of matter.

During my postdoc position at the University of Münster, I have started to work on challenging investigations of N=1 supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory on the lattice with advanced numerical methods of lattice gauge theories. These studies are done in collaboration with the research group of Prof. Dr. Gernot Münster.

In studies at the University of Jena I have investigated the general conditions for the realization of supersymmetry (and other symmetries) on the lattice. The comparison of lattice simulations with other methods like the functional renormalization group flow is also an important part of my research interests.

Further details of my research can be found in my research topics. Details on the places I have worked at during my research career can be found at Code/References. This includes a link to my public code projects. In the Code/References page you can also find a solution of a current PARPACK bug that might be helpful for other investigations of eigenvalues of large sparse matrices.
