Molecules in front of JUQUEEN

Research Group Computational Biophysical Chemistry in Jülich

The NIC research group Computational Biophysical Chemistry develops and applies structural bioinformatics, computational biology, and computational biophysics techniques in order to investigate the structure, dynamics, and function of biomolecular and supramolecular systems at the level of fundamental and applied research.

Head: Prof. Dr. Holger Gohlke
Site: Forschungszentrum Jülich

Research Group Computational Structural Biology in Jülich

The NIC Research Group Computational Structural Biology aims at quantitatively understanding the structural and dynamical molecular mechanism of biomolecules in HPC computer simulations.

Teaser Forschungsgruppe Elementarteilchenphysik

Research Group Elementary Particle Physics at DESY-Zeuthen

The group performs research on quantum filed theories formulated on space-time lattices aimed at solving problems in elementary particle physics. Examples are the determination of parameters of the strong interaction theory, QCD, weak decays of heavy mesons, hadronic contributions to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and the simulation of effective field theories.

Head (since Juli 2009): Prof. Dr. Rainer Sommer

Research Group Lattice Quantum Chromodynamics in Darmstadt

This research group works jointly with members of the lattice group at GU-Frankfurt on the properties of the strong interactions under extreme conditions. In particular, the long term goal is to determine the phase diagram of QCD as a function of temperature and baryon density, as well as the properties of matter in the hadron and quark gluon plasma phases directly from numerical simulations of lattice QCD.

Forschungsgruppe Nukleare Materie

Research Group Nuclear Matter in Darmstadt

The NIC group on nuclear matter at Frankfurt University, explores the properties of QCD-matter at frontiers of baryon densities and temperature. The group employs various approaches (e.g. the relativistic Boltzmann-equation, relativistic ideal and viscous hydrodynamics, magneto- and chiral hydrodynamics) for the numerical investigation of various signatures of the deconfinement phase transition of QCD. The main benefit of these approaches is that they allow for a direct comparison to experimental data.
