Andreas Deuchert

Andreas Deuchert portrait

I am currently a lecturer at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Zurich financed by an Ambizione Fellowship of the Swiss National Science Foundation. My main research interests are mathematical quantum mechanics and quantum statistical mechanics. More specifically I am applying techniques from Analysis, Functional Analysis and Probability to problems coming from condensed matter and cold atom physics. Currently I am mostly interested in the mathematics of Bose gases at positive temperature. Two other important themes of my work are mathematical aspects of the BCS theory of superconductivity and the physics of the angulon quasi-particle. For more information see my CV.

Lecture on variational techniques at UZH and ETH in Summer Term 2022

My collegue Alessandro Olgiati and me are currently giving a joint lecture with the title Variational methods in analysis (9 ECTS, 4 hours/week lecture, 2 hours/week exercise class) at the Institute of Mathematics of UZH, which can be booked by mathematics (and physics) Bachelor and Master students at UZH and ETH. The first half of the course can be booked independently by Bachelor students and is called Advanced topics in analysis (5 ECTS, 4 hours/week lecture, 2 hours/week exercise class). The course content can be found by following the above links.

Master thesis

If you are interested in writing a Master thesis in quantum statistical mechanics (from a mathematical point of view) I would be happy if you contact me. As prerequiste you need at least one lecture in one of the following topics: Functional Analysis, PDE, Advanced topics in analysis, Mathematical quantum mechanics, Stability of matter in quantum mechanics or something comparable. A certain background in physics or an interest in physics is helpful.

Events organised at the University of Zurich

I co-organized the summer school “Current Topics in Mathematical Physics” that took place in Zurich from July 19 to July 23 in 2021 (prior to the International Congress on Mathematical Physics in Geneva). More information can be found here.
