# Theoretical and Mathematical Physics, and Computational Science

## FACULTY

#### Manuel Berrondo

###### PROFESSOR

Dr. Berrondo's research interests include quantum field theory, quantum dynamics, quantum chemistry, and holistic dynamics. One of his research projects is studying the coherent motion of particles using the concepts of consensus and frustration.

#### Eric Hirschmann

###### ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Dr. Hirschmann specializes in general relativity, nonlinear field theories, and computational physics. He has published on topics including hlack holes, space time, gravitational waves, and neutron stars.

#### David Neilsen

###### PROFESSOR

Dr. Neilsen's research develops new mathematical models of binary systems of black holes and neutron stars. Dr. Neilsen uses computational methods to investigate relativistic perfect fluids found around these black holes. These models provide insight into the ways binary systems produce gravitational radiation.

#### Jean-Francois Van Huele

###### ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

Dr. Van Huele's research areas center on quantum theory. One of his focuses isquantum dynamics; he studies the evolution of systems that obey the quantum rules of microscopic physics, with applications in quantum optics, atomic physics, optomechanics, and material science. Dr. Van Huele also studies quantum information, which deals with how we access and process what we know about quantum systems
