Computational Theoretical Physics
We are an interdisciplinary research group working on the interface of physics, computer science and molecular biology. We working at the cutting edge of computer simulations and our main area of expertise are sophisticated optimization algorithms applied in statistical physics. We work on spin glasses, random-field systems, the vertex-cover problem, the satisfiability problem, percolation problems, RNA secondary structures, sequence alignment and large-deviation properties.
An introduction to our work can be found in this recent talk!
Bachlor and Master theses are always available, e.g., two-dimensional spin glasss on triangulated graphs (in cooperation with Prof. A. Peter Young, University of California Santa Cruz, USA)
