Department of Theoretical Physics

Department of Theoretical Physics consists of three overlapping subgroups covering different area of interest, physics and philosophy.


  • The first group (Physics & Cosmology Interest Group) actively works in the modern cosmology theoretical physics, mathematical physics and biophysics (see Arxiv, working papers IFP KUL).
    • The results of their investigation are published in the famous physical journals. The main topics are quantum cosmology in description of the Universe on the Planck scale, acceleration of the Universe, dark energy and dark matter, emergence, complexity and chaos in the systems of relativistic and cosmology origin, bayesian methods in testing and selection of cosmological models.
  • The second group (Philosophy of Physics & Cosmology Interest Group) over philosophical problems of physics and philosophical foundation of physics.
    • The last decades of discoveries in cosmology revealed how important is philosophical rethinking of our views on the evolution of the Universe, dark matter and dark energy, quantum gravity description of very early Universe at the Planck scale, etc., all focus on the need of novel methods of interpreting the data to obtain a coherent Weltbild. It was therefore necessary to create a supgroup devoited to research of philosophical issue of cosmology gathering partners from topics in this subject. The topics are the nature of big-bang (state of highest energy), how do we know it did? What is the nature dark sector made of? Also how modern cosmology, as an instrument, is used in searching the structure and evolution of the Universe. The horizons limitation of cosmological knowledge of the Universe is also investigated.
  • The third group (Biophysical Interest Group).
    • Biophysical problems of biomembrans. Antibiotics. Biomembrans as a self-organizing systems.
