Selected ProjectsCRC 478 E04 - Noncommutative geometry and quantisation of physical interactions The aim is to intensify previous research on the intersection of noncommutative geometry with quantum models for physical interactions. This includes the endeavour to renormalise gauge theories on noncommutative geometries on one hand and the analysis of a noncommutative algebra of loops related to quantum gravity on the other hand. Spectral triples play an important rˆole in both directions and a central question is to construct a Dirac operator with the physically desired properties. online
RTG 2149 - Srong and Weak Interactions - from Hadrons to Dark Matter The Research Training Group (Graduiertenkolleg) 2149 "Strong and Weak Interactions - from Hadrons to Dark Matter" funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft focuses on the close collaboration of theoretical and experimental nuclear, particle and astroparticle physicists further supported by a mathematician and a computer scientist. This explicit cooperation is of essence for the PhD topics of our Research Training Group.

Scientifically this Research Training Group addresses questions at the forefront of our present knowledge of particle physics. In strong interactions we investigate questions of high complexity, such as the parton distributions in nuclear matter, the transition of the hot quark-gluon plasma into hadrons, or features of meson decays and spectroscopy. In weak interactions we pursue questions, which are by definition more speculative and which go beyond the Standard Model of particle physics, particularly with regard to the nature of dark matter. We will confront theoretical predictions with direct searches for cold dark matter particles or for heavy neutrinos as well as with new particle searches at the LHC.

The pillars of our qualification programme are individual supervision and mentoring by one senior experimentalist and one senior theorist, topical lectures in physics and related fields (e.g. advanced computation), peer-to-peer training through active participation in two research groups, dedicated training in soft skills, and the promotion of research experience in the international community. We envisage early career steps through a transfer of responsibilities and international visibility with stays at external partner institutions. An important goal of this Research Training Group is to train a new generation of scientists, who are not only successful specialists in their fields, but who have a broader training both in theoretical and experimental nuclear, particle and astroparticle physics. online
CRC 878 C04 - Mathematical aspects of QFT and condensed matter We continue our work on solvable quantum field theory models on noncommutative geometries and extend them to several components. In order to give a rigorous foundation to the fractional quantum Hall effect we work on a construction of a KK-element which classifies topological effects in disordered materials.

EXC 2044 - B3: Operator algebras & mathematical physics The development of operator algebras was largely motivated by physics since they provide the right mathematical framework for quantum mechanics. Since then, operator algebras have turned into a subject of their own. We will pursue the many fascinating connections to (functional) analysis, algebra, topology, group theory and logic, and eventually connect back to mathematical physics via random matrices and non-commutative geometry. online
CRC 1442: Geometry: Deformation and Rigidity - D03: Integrability The project investigates a novel integrable system which arises from a quantum field theory on noncommutative geometry. It is characterised by a recursive system of equations with conjecturally rational solutions. The goal is to deduce their generating function and to relate the rational coefficients in the generating function to intersection numbers of tautological characteristic classes on some moduli space. online
