About Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics at Vilnius University

WHY STUDY THEORETICAL PHYSICS AND ASTROPHYSICS AT VILNIUS UNIVERSITY?

Present technologies of multi scale supercomputing in a broad range of problems require specialists with original and creative mindset reinforced by scientific theoretical tools of material science. Such people are able to develop models, perform computations, analyse data and come up with ideas of improvement based on efficiency as dictated by rationale of physical science. Our program prepares such specialists. This is achieved by learning latest "unfinished" subjects of theoretical physics and practicing scientific research interfaced with supercomputing and emerging quantum computing.

COURSE INFORMATION

During four semesters of studies, students get hands onto parallel computing methods for scientific applications, computational optimization approaches and artificial intelligence as compulsory courses. Apart from that, they can choose from a range of theoretical physics and astrophysics courses, which include mathematical modeling, non-local mathematical physics, physical kinetics, spectrometry, data mining, star atmospheres, advanced statistical physics, response theory, cosmology, quantum theory of atoms and molecules, quantum information, low temperature physics, quantum thermodynamics, physics of galaxies. In addition to that, every semester students join research groups for practice and experiencing the research.

INTERNATIONAL MOBILITY

Students can participate in ERASMUS+ mobility programme or use VU’s Bilateral cooperation agreements which give an opportunity to study at VU’s Partner Universities or do internship abroad.
