We pursue and promote research in mathematical physics.

Formed in 1999, we aim to:

  • strengthen connections between the disciplines of mathematics and physics, and related disciplines around UQ
  • cooperate and interact with other centres locally and abroad
  • organise a visitors' event program of seminars and joint research projects.

Our research strengths include: 

  • lie theory
  • quantum groups, quantum affine algebras
  • knot theory
  • integrable and exactly solvable models in statistical mechanics
  • quasi-exactly solvable models
  • superintegrable systems
  • conformal field theory
  • algebraic methods
  • foundations of quantum mechanics
  • quantum chaos.
