Theoretical Physics description

Research areas at the division of Theoretical Physics are condensed matter theory and astroparticle physics. We are studying how physics may be described through theory and mathematical models with a strong connection toward experimental activity.

Our research contributes to the fundamental understanding of physics, which in turn makes it possible to both predict new phenomena and also explain experimental findings in physics.

Research groups


Astroparticle physics

Astroparticle physics is a new field of research at the intersection of particle physics, astronomy, and cosmology.

Computational physics


PoreLab – Centre of Excellence (SFF)

PoreLab is a Norwegian Center of Excellence created in 2017 and situated at NTNU and the University of Oslo (UiO). It focuses on the physics of porous media using experimental, theoretical and computational methods. It is led by six principal scientists from physics, chemistry and reservoir engineering.
