Independent research groups (Potsdam)
The AEI in Potsdam hosts five independent research groups including a permanent one that specializes in geometry and gravitation. The other independent research groups ar working on black hole theory, theoretical cosmology, quantum fields and information, and in history of quantum gravity (in collaboration with the MPI for the History of Science in Berlin).
The research group Geometry and Gravitation studies fundamental questions in the theory of gravity, and related physical theories. [more]
Research of this Minerva Research Group focuses on theoretical aspect of black holes and the astonishing effects they have in the surrounding space-time. [more]
This independent research group, funded by the Humboldt Foundation through a Sofja Kovalevskaja Award, aims at exploring the intersection of gravitational and high-energy physics with quantum information science. [more]
This research group focuses on the history of the search for a quantum gravity theory. The group is a joint Max Planck Research Group of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam. [more]
The aim of the Theoretical Cosmology research group is to enhance our understanding of the very early universe and its most mysterious aspect, the big bang. [more]
