String theory is a complex network of ideas and techniques with four main lines of research: first of all, string theory, as a “theory of everything”, provides a framework to construct unified models of particles and interactions beyond the...

Statistical Mechanics image
Project leader: Stanislav Smirnov

The development of statistical mechanics started in the late 19th century, with the pioneering works of Boltzmann and Gibbs. It aims at describing the typical behavior of macroscopic systems, based on the knowledge of how their microscopic...

Project leader: Gian-Michele Graf

Quantum mechanics is one of the fundamental physical theories, and the one whose birth in the early XX century was intimately intertwined with parallel developments in mathematics. The bond between the two subjects has not weakened since then,...

Geometry, Topology and Physics image
Project leader: Rahul Pandharipande

Geometry and physics are two inherently intertwined fundamental scientific disciplines. From optics to aerodynamics and relativity theory, their fruitful interaction gave birth to foundations of human knowledge. Geometry, Topology and Physics...

Project leader: Giovanni Felder

Quantum field theory is the quantum theory of force fields mediating elementary particle interactions. It is a successful fundamental theory of physics as it describes through the Standard Model all known elementary particle interactions except...
