Our research concentrates on various aspects of quantum field theory, such as field theory at finite temperatures or densities; field theory out of equilibrium; and field theory in the vacuum.
Typical observables are the equation of state, particle production rates, and heavy-quark related objects.
Typical methods are effective field theory techniques, multiloop computations, and string-theory inspired strong coupling methods.
The results may find applications in cosmology, in heavy-ion collision experiments at LHC, and in precision particle physics experiments at a future ILC.
