The Laboratory carries on research activities at the forefront of various disciplines. These include:
- astrophysics (computational astrophysics, gravitational waves, numerical relativity)
- relativistic theory of gravity and cosmology (quantum field in curved space-time, physics of black holes and Hawking radiation, cosmological models, inflation and dark energy)
- particle physics (astroparticle models and data analysis)
- theoretical and computational nuclear physics and related area (Ab-initio methods for bound state and reaction observables in few- and many-body systems; applications to nuclei, hypernuclei, low-dimensional many-electron systems, quantum fluids and solids; hadron physics in the parton model, light front Hamiltonian dynamics)
- Bose-Einstein condensation and ultracold atomic gases (superfluidity in Bose and Fermi gases, coherence and disorder, spinor and dipolar gases, low dimensional physics, Monte Carlo simulations, quantum fluids of light)
- statistical and computational physics of biomolecules.
The research activity benefits from important national and international collaborations with other Institutes and Research Centers. At the local level these include: the Trento Institute for Fundamental Physics and Application (TIFPA) , the European Center for Theoretical Research in Nuclear Physics and Related Areas (ECT*), the INO-CNR Center on Bose-Einstein Condensation (BEC), the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for Computational Science (LISC).
