Welcome to the CSSM

The Special Research Centre for the Subatomic Structure of Matter at The University of Adelaide, South Australia carries out research activities at the forefront of the fields of theoretical nuclear and particle physics with a special emphasis on the strong interactions and their importance in determining the nature of matter.

The strong interactions are described by the quantum field theory, Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) which governs the interactions between quarks and gluons at the heart of matter.

At the centre, we are working to further illucidate the behaviour of the microscopic world through numerical simulations of fundamental quantum theories (such as QCD), through effective field theory calculations and by building models (such as the Quark-meson coupling model).
