Research interests in the field of Theoretical Elementary Particles Physics include modern Gauge Theories, Supersymmetry, Superstring theories and Unification of Fundamental Interactions and Cosmology.

Members of the academic staff are involved in Theoretical Nuclear Physics (nucleon-nucleon interactions, ββ-decay etc.) , Plasma Physics (fusion plasma equilibrium and stability, magneto-hydrodynamics of plasma relaxation etc.) as well as Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics.

Members of the High Energy Physics group participate in the following Research Programs supported by the European Community: - UNILHC: Unification in the LHC era , Marie Curie Initial Training Network, PITN-GA-2009-237920, Oct. 2009 - Sept. 2013.
- UniverseNet, Marie Curie Research Training Network, MRTN-CT-2006-035863, Oct 2006-Oct 2010.
- The Quest For Unification: Theory Confronts Experiment, RTN European Program MRTN-CT-2004-503369, Oct. 2004 - Sept. 2008.
The High Energy Physics Group has recently finished the installation of the High Performance Computing Cluster consisting of 8 nodes/64 processors with 4GB memory each and a total of 1.3 TB storage. The cluster is now fully operational, including 5 Wolfram Mathematica 7.0 and two Maple 14 licences, for analytic and numerical computations, as well as FORTRAN 95/97 compiler with OpenMP and MPI functionality for parallel computations. |
