The members of the Theoretical Physics Division are actively engaged in research over a wide range of theoretical physics. In many areas, Particle Physics, Astrophysics and Biological Physics, they are based in the same research group as their experimental colleagues and work closely with them.
The divisional structure also facilitates close collaboration between the Particle and Astrophysicists. The Complex Systems and Statistical Physics Group applies ideas and techniques from statistical physics to the Biological and Social Sciences and has collaborations with other groups in the School, Faculty, University and elsewhere.
Finally, the members of the Theoretical Nuclear Group carry out research at the interface of particle and nuclear physics. Many of the researchers in the Division give final year undergraduate or postgraduate lectures on their speciality, which taken together give a comprehensive introduction to much of the current research in theoretical physics.
