The research developed in the group of Theoretical Physics of the Department of Physics and Informatics comprises traditional areas of Physics such as Condensed Matter and Particles, emphasizing modern and challenging problems such as superconductivity and gauge theory in the network, as well as areas of interface with Biology, Exemplified by research into molecular and neurobiophysical evolution. This diversity of lines of research and attention to the frontier problems of Science make the Theoretical Physics group almost unique in the country, attracting visiting professors and young doctors trained in other centers of the country and abroad.

As a result of the lines of research developed here, there are several publications in international journals, three of them in Physical Review Letters. We collaborated with researchers from Brazil and abroad and received visits from researchers from Canada, Austria, France, England, Germany, São Paulo, Bahia, Espírito Santo, Minas Gerais, Pernambuco and Rio de Janeiro.

The members of the Group actively participated in the institutional activities, both as undergraduate and postgraduate professors, as members of the Collegiate organs of the Department and of the Institute of Physics of São Carlos, as well as of Judging Commissions of Contests, in addition to Seminars and lectures given in other institutions.
