Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore

Facoltà di Scienze Matematiche, Fisiche e Naturali

The close collaboration between theoretical and experimental research within the "Niccolò Tartaglia" Department of Mathematics and Physics provides undergraduate and graduate students with the unique opportunity of already entering and working in an international arena of excellence.

Research in the field of Mathematics focuses on the study of Advanced Algebra (group theory, algebras, graphs and combinational designs), Geometry (projective and symplectic geometry, geometric quantization), Mathematical Analysis (partial differential equations, calculus of variations), Mathematical Physics (continuum mechanics) and Numerical Analysis (elliptic and parabolic problems).

In Physics, research is predominantly aimed at the study of the properties of quantum and nanostructured materials whose intrinsic complexity gives rise to unconventional actions and of applicative interest (ILAMP); to measures and modelling of exchanges of energy, gas and matter between ecosystems and the atmosphere (Environmental Physics Laboratory); to problems relevant to the theoretical physics of fundamental interactions, within the GAST national research group of the INFN.

Informatics research examines the optimization of performance and the development of artificial intelligence algorithms for application purposes, comprising machine learning models for production optimisation.

In the Economics field, research investigates the economy of the environment and of energy, economic geography and spatial econometrics.
