The Mathematical Physics group consists of one faculty member and one distinguished affiliated faculty. As our university and our department grow, we are hoping to create a strong and prominent group. The research interests of the group are Conformal Field Theory, Integrable Models in Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Field Theory, Supersymmetry, String Theory, and Calabi-Yau manifolds. In addition, faculty in the Department of Mathematics work in areas of mathematical physics (Plasma Physics and Dynamical Systems). Several outstanding students have worked on the area and are currently pursuing doctorates in highly selective schools.
