Emmy Noether research group “The quantum stress-energy tensor”

This independent junior research group is funded by the Emmy Noether Programme of the German Research Foundation (DFG) for the period 2018-2023.

Our research addresses current issues in the framework of quantum field theory, in particular, the study of lower bounds of the smeared energy density in models with non-trivial scattering. Furthermore, we are interested in the construction of quantum field theories with self-interaction, in particular, with factorizing scattering matrix.
