Chair of Quantum Mathematical Physics


Welcome to the Chair of Quantum Mathematical Physics. We conduct research on mathematical aspects of various branches of contemporary theoretical physics. Of our particular interest are formal features and exact results in quantum field theory – and among others in its incarnations, such as conformal, integrable, and topological quantum field theories – which arise in condensed matter, quantum information, high energy physics, quantum gravity, string theory and M-theory. We analyze quantum integrability and strongly correlated quantum systems, entanglement measures and computational complexity, and try to understand how gravity geometry emerges from quantum information. Of our interest are matrix models and topological recursion, as well as links between physics, knot theory, and low-dimensional topology, and relations of all these systems to topological string theory.

Research groups

Quantum Information in Quantum Gravity

Principal Investigator: dr hab. Paweł Caputa
Our main goal is to explore quantum gravity using quantum information. Our current focus is on developing quantum information tools such as entanglement measures and computational complexity in quantum field theories and using them to understand how gravity geometry emerges from quantum information.


Strongly Correlated Systems and Quantum Integrability

Principal Investigator: dr hab. Miłosz Panfil
Our primary interest is in the field of strongly correlated quantum systems and quantum integrability. We are also interested in mathematics and physics at the intersection of quantum groups, knots theory and topological string theory.


Quantum Fields and Strings

Principal Investigator: prof. Piotr Sułkowski
We conduct research in formal aspects of quantum field theory, topological string theory, matrix models and topological recursion, knot theory and knots-quivers correspondence. We are interested in interrelations between these topics and still some other related problems.


Quantum Singularities in Holographic Models

Principal Investigator: dr Adam Bzowski
My goal is to explore the structure of quantum black holes and cosmologies. I want to deliver new cosmological predictions based on holography and investigate the structure of the space of states of quantum black holes.
