Research statement

  • Nonperturbative gauge dynamics, geometry and topology
  • Noncommutative, fuzzy and quantum geometries, and quantum gravitation
  • Particle physics and the unifications of all fundamental quantum interactions inclusive of gravity
  • Collective quantum phenomena in condensed matter physics (superconductivity)
  • Theoretical and mathematical physics

    As a driving motivation, our research activities aim to address some of the basic issues remaining open in the present day gauge theories of the fundamental quantum interactions and their matter couplings.

    On the one hand, for well accepted theories a solid understanding of their nonperturbative dynamics remains largely wanting. Undoubtedly, topological and geometrical properties in field space in relation to large gauge symmetries play crucial roles in this respect, to which perturbative gauge fixing procedures remain totally oblivious. A significant component of our research efforts addresses such issues within lower dimensional gauge theories or abelian gauge theories from complementary nonperturbative points of view, also unravelling dualities between apparently disconnected theories.

    On the other hand, present day gauge theories of the fundamental quantum interactions present their own challenges pointing towards new fundamental conceptual paradigms beyond quantum physics and gravity. Some of the exploratory paths being trodden are deformations of quantum mechanics, noncommutative or fuzzy spacetime geometries, and topological theories for pure quantum gravity, being applied in a variety of physical circumstances.

    Yet in relation to the above, some interests in particle phenomenology are also being pursued, mostly centered on the electromagnetic properties of neutrinos in as many varied physical contexts as possible.

    Finally, progress in nonperturbative dynamics of gauge theories has often exploited advances made in condensed matter physics.Collective phenomena in lower dimensional fermionic systems display a variety of behaviours, remaining also largely not yet understood, which may well prove relevant to nonperturbative gauge dynamics alike. Hence a modest part of research activities addresses such issues as well, in particular within the context of the different phenomena of superconductivity.
Projects
I am involved in the following research direction:

Integrable quantum dynamics, Klauder-Daubechies deformations and noncommutative geometric structures.

Combining complementary approaches to quantisation, exploration of integrability issues in quantum dynamics and noncommutative geometric structures

External collaborators: M. Norbert Hounkonnou (ICMPA-UNESCO Chair, UAC, Benin) Calvin Matondo Bwayi (UNIKIN, DRC).

Non-commutative quantum dynamics and supersymmetry

Extensions to the supersymmetric context of the Moyal non-commutative plane are being considered from different perspectives.

Non-perturbative dynamics of QED in low dimensions

By emphasizing the relevance of topology in nonperturbative gauge dynamics in the presence of nontrivial space(time) topology, develop gauge invariant physical tools to approach the nonperturbative dynamics of such systems in approximation schemes. In an initial study, QED in lower dimensions is considered in detail.

Nonperturbative quantisation of gauge theories, noncommutative geometry and unification of the fundamental interactions

Development of nonperturbative quantisation techniques of gauge theories (Yang-Mills, topological, gravity) and their application to particle physics and quantum field theory at finite temperature (in particular, within the context of superconductivity).
Exploration of the consequences of noncommutative geometry in the search for the unification of the fundamental interactions (M-theory and superstrings, quantum gravity).

External collaborators: Frederik Scholtz (National Institute for Theoretical Physics, NITheP, South Africa); Hendrik Geyer (Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study, STIAS; University of Stellenbosch, South Africa); M.

Klauder (University of Florida, Gainesville, USA); Peter Jarvis (University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia).

Quantum Gravity and the Cosmological Constant

Quantum diffeomorphic gauge invariance and the total cosmological constant, inclusive of the quantum fluctuations of the gravitational field

Topology and Non-Perturbative Gauge Dynamics

The connections between topology in space(time) and in field configuration space and the non-perturbative dynamics of general gauge theories, inclusive of mass generating mechanims, are being studied.

Past projects

I am involved in the following research direction:

Deformation of quantum dynamics in Phase Space

In this project, we study a deformation of the path integral introducing a new time scale. This deformation is inspired by Klauder's path integral construction using a Riemannian metric on phase space. The introduction of this new time scale leads to a complex Landau problem, non commutative geometry and non unitarity effects.

Gauge Phase Space Symmetries and Their Interactions

The potential of gauging phase space dynamical symmetries as a principle for generating interactions is explored

Superconductivity in extremal regimes and nanoscopic particle detectors

Theoretical and experimental study of superconductivity in extremal regimes (spatial and temporal, and in the presence
of electric fields), aiming towards the development of nanoscopic particle detectors

External collaborators: Vincent Bayot (CERMIN, UCL).

The Fuzzy Ball

We are beginning to investigate the possibility of using finite sized matrices to describe a non-commutative three dimensional ball.

The Laplace and Dirac operators on the Fuzzy Grassmanians

This project is concerned with the construction the polarization tensors for (some of) the Fuzzy Grassmanians. We will then consider the Dirac operator and spinors for these spaces in the compact formalism recently introduced for the complex projective spaces. We will also consider Formula: 0 structures.
