The Institute for Theoretical Physics III combines two chairs in theoretical physics with focus on quantum many-body phenomena and strongly correlated systems. The institute provides expertise in the fields of quantum optics, condensed matter physics, quantum information theory, as well as atomic and molecular physics. We combine analytical as well as numerical methods and explore machine learning approaches for the study of strongly interacting quantum systems. We are driven by fundamental scientific questions and strive to find applications in quantum information processing and to harvest quantum systems as a resource for novel technologies.
The research of the Scheurer group deals with the theoretical description of the emergent phenomena that arise in interacting quantum many-body systems as a result of competing interactions, disorder, and topology. We use analytical as well as numerical techniques and explore the potential of machine-learning to address problems of many-body physics.
