Team Description

Uppsala University is the oldest university in Scandinavia and the physics department is among the largest in Sweden. Research in the department includes a large contingent at the ATLAS detector at the LHC, a group that is part of ICECUBE, the neutrino observatory at the South Pole, a planetary physics group, a world-renowned theoretical magnetism group and a large theoretical physics division.

The theoretical physics division does research in string theory, integrability, mathematical physics, supersymmetry, model building, protein folding and cosmology. They also have a close relationship with the theoretical group inside the particle physics division that does research in QCD. They are also closely linked with Nordita.
