Particle and Nuclear Theory
at the
University of Adelaide

Members of the Theoretical Physics Group working in Particle and Nuclear Theory are interested in a range of topics involving the nuclear and particle nature of matter. We try to understand the behaviour of the microscopic world through fundamental theories (such as Quantum Chromodynamics) and by building models (such as Quark-meson coupling), using both analytical and numerical techniques.

The Particle and Nuclear Theory effort is also involved in developing mathematical methods, to increase our ability to make quantitative predictions from existing theories. Hence connections can be made with experiment, and members of our group are involved in suggesting experiments to be run at accelerator facilities (such as CERN) and in analysing the results.

Current research interests include (but are not limited to): Dyson-Schwinger equations, Quark-Meson coupling models, Lattice QCD, Relativistic Boundstates and Electromagnetic Form Factors.
