Division V - Physics and Mathematics
Division 5 comprises research, teaching, and innovation in Physics and Mathematics. Research is carried out at 21 institutes and 3 Helmholtz programmes „From Matter to Materials and Life (MML)“, „Matter and Technology (MT)“ and „Matter and the Universe (MU)“.
Research topics are Geometry, Groups and Topology, Partial Differential Equations, Stochastic Models as well as Particle and Astroparticle Physics, Solid State and Quantum Physics, Applied Physics, and Geophysics, with intensive collaboration between experiment and theory.
Research oriented teaching at the KIT Departments for Mathematics und Physics is an essential part of the teaching at almost all study courses at KIT.
The scientists of Division 5 are engaged in numerous national and international projects and research collaborations and operate the large research infrastructures GridKa, KARA, KATRIN and TLK.
From structures to models - from quanta to the universe
The mid-term update of the European Strategy for Astroparticle Physics 2017-2026 has been successfully completed by the European Astroparticle Physics Consortium (APPEC) and approved by the General Assembly. The Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is involved in many of the ongoing and planned experiments.Mehr erfahren
