My research group belongs to the Research Focus
"Elementary Particle Physics"
of the Department of Physics.
Fields of interest of my group are:
Quantum Field Theory and the Theory of Elementary Particles.
A somewhat more detailed description can be found
here.
A focal point is quantum field theory on a lattice.
There is a textbook available on this:
I. Montvay, G. Münster: Quantum Fields on a Lattice.
Some current projects:

Lecturing is a process, where the
notes of the teacher become the notes of the student without passing
through the mind of either.

If you are bored, you can see a
movie here.
Or you have a look at some
Popular Fallacies in Physics (in german),
so that on the next physicists party you can shine.
Here are two surf tips:
the homepage of
Gerard 't Hooft
and
Britney Spear's Guide to Semiconductor Physics.
A poem.
And another poem.
How I became a pastor:

In addition a look into the
library of theology.

Curriculum Vitae
Bachelors theses, Masters theses, Diploma theses, teachers theses, PhD theses, and
Habilitation theses

hIndex (HirschIndex): 24
The hIndex
( HirschIndex )
is a bibliometric measure for the
total impact of an authors publications.
By the way, I am collecting autographs of physicists. For example, I have
books with dedications of Heisenberg, Jordan and others.
The nicest piece in my collection is this postcard (click on it)
with the signatures of
E.P. Wigner,
P.A.M. Dirac
and
J. Schwinger.
Here I am next to
Michael Creutz
on LATTICE2001 in Berlin:
Some more pictures are in my
physicists foto album.
This picture shows me with a colleague from math:
At the tomb of Leonhard Euler in St. Petersburg:
Some journals
that might be of interest to a field theorist.
