ATP group develops its activities in Theoretical Physics, Dynamical Systems and PDEs. More specifically, the following topics are investigated:
• Whether (and how) the explicit presence of supersymmetry in gravitational settings will affect the states of the universe, as far as space-time singularities (initial or late time) would be present or not.
• Establish how additional fields (eg, 3-forms) as well as modifications into the Einstein-Hilbert action, namely in the gravitational sector will emerge into observational consequences
• Stability of mechanical systems, geodesic flows, and Poisson Morphisms, in particular stability of dynamical systems exhibiting some symmetry;
• Decay of correlations on random perturbations of asymptotically expanding dynamical systems;
• Stability of nonautonomous dynamic equations with generalized dichotomies on time scales or measure chains, including nonautonomous epidemic models and nonautonomous neural network models on time scales;
• Wave diffraction problems from an operator theory viewpoint and Fredholm property characterization of classes of operators associated to the diffraction problems;
• Approximate solutions to initial boundary value problems using Adomian decomposition method;
• Study nonautonomous epidemic models using optimal control theory
