Research: Theoretical Physics
The Theory Group is active in several research areas. Its activity is focused on the development of theoretical tools based on geometric and topological methods to explain phenomena in various contexts. The developed methodologies have been applied to three main research fields: the characterisation of phase-transition phenomena in classical Hamiltonian systems, the study of dynamical phenomenology of classical and quantum systems, and the characterisation of entanglement and quantum correlation properties, in quantum multipartite states. Our main objectives include: Quantum Science Theory, Statistical Mechanics and Dynamical Systems. Despite the strong differences among them, the studies in the three macro areas share similar mathematical methods.
