Mathematical Physics

The research work of this group involves statistical and asymptotic properties of classical and quantum systems; the theory of integrable systems and exactly solvable quantum field and statistical mechanics models; random matrices and orthogonal polynomials; modern theory of special functions; representation theory of Lie algebras and quantum group; noncommutative geometry; quantum chaos; along with related number theoretic aspects of spectral theory.

The Mathematical Physics Group maintains very strong working contacts with all the leading world centers in the Group's research areas. The members of the Group have been repeatedly invited as short-term visiting scholars by several top Universities, and the Group has hosted several high-profile visitors-Bernard Malgrange, Tetsuji Miwa, Sergei Novikov, just to name a few. The Group also intends to strengthen its potential by inviting long-term visitors for carrying out important joint research projects.
