The Mathematical Physics Group at the Physics Department started in 1994 and presently includes five senior researchers, graduate students and postdocs.
The research is mainly focused on current problems in high energy physics, in particular:
- Particle search beyond Standard Model: WIMPs, axions, hidden photons and others
- Signatures of Lorentz Invariance Violation and Very Special Relativity
- Supersymmetry and integrable models
- Gravitation and black holes
- Cosmological models
Some of the collaborations of our group involve institutions such as DESY, Université de Montreal, University of Rochester,Université de Tours, Universidad de Valladolid, University of Wroclaw, Universidad Nacional de La Plata, City College of New York, Gran Sasso-INFN, SISSA, Universitat de Barcelona, University of Sao Paulo, University of Zaragoza, TohoUniversity.
The members of the group are involved as principal investigators in diverse research projects supported by the National Research Council (CONICYT). The graduate students are currently supported by scholarships from CONICYT and DICYT, and in the recent years our senior researchers have been awarded one J. S. Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship.
