## About

The **Theory of Complex Systems Department** is a part of the Theory Departments Group of the Marian Smoluchowski Institute of Physics at the Jagiellonian University. It was formend in 2002 by disjoining from the Particle Theory Department.

In our research we tacle fundamental physics and interdisciplinary problems, both with analytical and numerical methods.

## Main research areas

- Quantum Gravity and Cosmology
- Random Matrix Theory
- String Theory and AdS/CFT correspondence
- Mathematical methods of theoretical physics applied to interdisciplinary problems

## Projects

Ongoing:

- Mark Kac Complex Systems Research Centre
- Maestro: Quantum Gravity using the model of Causal Dynamical Triangulations
- Maestro: Interdisciplinary applications of Random Matrix Theory
- Maestro: From String Theory to Gauge Theory - the AdS/CFT correspondence
- Fuga: The evolution of the early Universe, from the inflation to the Planck scale, taking into account quantum-gravity corrections
