|Outline of research interests
My research interests are associated with the many-body quantum systems, such as atomic nuclei, atoms, molecules and atomic clusters. The great variety of quantum-mechanical phenomena that abound in these systems make them the unique laboratories for testing quantum mechanics, while their complexity poses an unprecedented challenge for the theory.
In particular my research interests concern:
Physics of cold atomic gases:
superfluidity, thermodynamics, exotic phases,
Condensation (BEC), physics of BEC-BCS
crossover, dynamics of superfluid vortices, viscosity.
Physics of atomic nuclei: structure of atomic
nuclei at extreme conditions: high angular momenta,
exotic deformations, large mass numbers, large neutron
to proton ratio.
structure and stability issues, superfluid properties.
theoretical issues related to quantum many body
My research requires usage of the fastest supercomputers in the world. Currently I have access to
