The biophysics groups focus on a range of problems in soft matter
physics and biological physics. The research problems are often
medically related and involve massive computer simulations. Topics
covered include studies of protein structure and dynamics,
biomembranes, molecular dynamics, and mechanics of bacteria and
viruses.

## PARTICLE PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS

Group homepages:
Particle physics,
Mathematical physics

Research in the particle physics group is focused on physics beyond
the Standard Model of particle physics, and in the mathematical
physics group on theory of quantum systems with many degrees of
freedom. In particular, the research topics are neutrino physics,
extra dimensions, dark matter, LHC phenomenology, astroparticle
physics, quantum field theory, exactly solvable systems, and quantum
statistical physics in connection to condensed matter physics, as well
as synergy effects between the various research topics.

## CONDENSED MATTER PHYSICS

Group homepages:
Condensed matter and statistical physics

The research interests of the condensed matter and statistical
physics groups cover both basic and applied physics. Topics studied
include strongly correlated systems, classical and quantum phase
transitions, exotic quantum fluids, magnetism, materials under extreme
conditions, corrosion, nanostructures, disordered systems, soft
materials, Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations.
