Dynamical Systems, Statistical Physics & Field Theory  

Research
in this group involves a wide spectrum of theoretical physics.
Broadly, current activities center on dynamical systems, both classical and quantum, stochastic processes, quantum field theory, string theory, quantum information and computation, electronic structure methods and computational physics. Also closely related theoretical physics areas here are the Complex Fluids division and the Atomic and Molecular Physics group. Specifically we study noisy
dynamical systems, recurrences, relationship
between stochasticity and chaos, chaos in gauge theories, spatiotemporal chaos, quantum and Hamiltonian chaos. We also research quantum mechanics, specifically, geometric phases, quantum revivals, quantum entanglement, and quantum random walks. Field theory part our work concerns superstring theory and related areas such as quantum gravity, black holes and conformal field theory. Our group has eight faculty members and eight graduate students. If you want to do a Ph.D. with any of us, the route to take is to first qualify for the IITM Physics Department, see IITM homepage for details.
