Group of Mathematical Physics

The Group of Mathematical Physics of the University of Lisbon is a Research Center of the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology (FCT). It has always been, up to now, a Center of Excellence of this Foundation, i.e. has always obtained the highest classification, awarded periodically by panels of foreign mathematicians. [-> latest comments and recommendations regarding GFM scientific activities]

Our basic aim is to develop rigorous mathematical methods motivated by problems in modern Theoretical Physics. This is not only about making rigorous what physicists already know, but about providing them with new tools and ideas inspired by the most recent developments in the Mathematical Sciences.

GFM has been involved in the organization of European Study Groups with Industry in Portugal.

The topics currently developed by the GFM members belong to the following domains:

  • Stochastic analysis
  • Stochastic Geometric Mechanics
  • Applied pseudo differential operators
  • Geometric spectral theory
  • Numerical shape optimization
  • Spectral theory on quantum graphs
  • Analytic ODEs theory and Integrability
  • Topological supersymmetric gauge theories
  • Spin-foam models in quantum gravity
  • Optimal transport and Schroedinger problem

Advisory Board

Prof. Dr. Philippe Blanchard (Univ. Bielefeld, Germany)
Prof. Dr. Sergio Albeverio (Univ. Bonn, Germany)

GFM welcomes applications of excellent candidates for PhD and for post-doctoral positions. These applications are open to all candidates, independently of nationality or country of residence. Candidates will be considered on a competitive basis and in the limits of the resources made available to the GFM by the Portuguese National Science Foundation or other funding sources.
