Professor, Head of Unit
27 researchers in natural and engineering sciences at LiU have been awarded nearly SEK 97 million for the coming four years from the Swedish Research Council. Five young researchers have received grants to build up their own research group.
Theoretical physicists at LiU have developed a computational method to calculate the transition from one phase to another in dynamically disordered solid materials. This is a class of materials that can be used in many eco-friendly applications.
Pushing science forward through mathematical modelling and computer simulations.
Theoretical physics deals with understanding of nature. In our research we use fundamental principles and basic concepts to develop mathematical models that are then studied by means of analytical and numerical methods.
Undergraduate teaching and research in the areas of biology, chemistry, materials and applied physics and theory and modelling are conducted at this department.
