Research Categories: Theoretical Nuclear and Particle Physics
Quantum Critical Behavior in Fermion Systems, Using the generalized fermion bag algorithm, Applications to Graphene and Unitary Fermi Gas.
Research Description: Prof. Chandrasekharan is interested in non-perturbative aspects of Quantum Field Theories. His research focuses on Lattice Field Theories with emphasis on strongly correlated fermionic systems. He develops novel Monte-Carlo algorithms to study these problems.
Areas of Interest:
Quantum Field Theories, Lattice formulations,
Critical Phenomena and Monte Carlo Algorithms.
