Research Activities

  • Quantum many-body physics
  • Low-dimensional correlated electrons
  • One-particle properties of Luttinger liquids
  • Boundary and impurity effects in Luttinger liquids
  • Transport in low-dimensional, mesoscopic systems
  • Kondo effect
  • Renormalization group methods
  • Nonequilibrium properties (steady state and dynamics)
  • Quantum phase transitions in low-dimensional systems

Some basic things on my (at present) favorite method - the functional renormalization group - you will find on the following page.
