Grupo de Física Matemática

Grupo de Física Matemática (Group of Mathematical Physics, GFM) is a research centre founded in 1995 and headquartered at Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon, Portugal.

GFM is part of the Portuguese system of science and technology, being principally funded by the Portuguese science foundation Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (FCT). It has always obtained the top classification of Excellent in all FCT evaluations in which it received funding.

Our driving goal is to develop rigorous mathematical methods motivated by problems in modern theoretical physics. This is not only about making rigorous what physicists already know, but about creating new tools and ideas inspired by the most recent developments in the mathematical sciences.

At present, the work of our members can be broadly divided into four main areas:

External Advisory Board
