College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
The group in mathematical physics works closely with several colleagues in Physics and together we hold the longest running interdisciplinary seminar in the College. Much of our work is in group representation theory and its application to quantum mechanics. There is also a substantial interaction between the mathematical physics and the operator theory/operator algebra group. Of special interest in recent years have been problems relating to the mathematics of quantum stochastic processes in general, and in the mathematics of quantum computing.
