Mathematical Physics

Johannes Walcher

As a Mathematical Physicist, I am interested in understanding both how the world works, and what this means in abstract terms. I am currently Professor at Heidelberg University, work at the Institute for Mathematics, teach at the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, and also supervise students from the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
