Course content

The Theoretical Physics group at the University of Nottingham carries out research in the general area of theoretical condensed matter physics. We aim to use a variety of analytical and computational techniques to investigate the ways in which order and complexity arise within condensed matter.

Our work falls into three main areas:

  • Quantum Phenomena in Nanostructures
  • Ultra-Cold Atoms and other Quantum Fluids
  • Statistical Physics and its Applications
