The Department of Theoretical Physics was founded in 1872. Famous representatives of the scientific school include: Marian Smoluchowski, Stanisław Loria, Leopold Infeld, Wojciech Rubinowicz, Vasyl Milianczuk, Abba Glauberman, Samuil Kaplan, Ihor Yukhnovskii, Mykhailo Senkiv, Roman Gaida, Ihor Stasyuk, Lavrentiy Blazhyevskyi, Ivan Vakarchuk, Volodymyr Tkachuk.

Presently, the Department for Theoretical Physics conducts research in the following scientific fields: quantum information, quantum computers and quantum programming, quantum statistical physics, physical systems in quantized space, supersymmetry in quantum mechanics, classical inhomogeneous systems, history and philosophy of science, interdisciplinary studies.

The department organizes the annual scientific conference “Christmas Discussions” (January) and the Workshop on Current Problems in Physics (Zielona Góra, Poland – Lviv). It has links with scientists from Poland, Belgium, Austria, Slovakia, France, India.

Prospects for the development of physics in Ukraine and the Lviv Region were discussed at the Platform of Ideas

30.09.2022 | 11:37

The Faculty of Physics of the Ivan Franko National University of Lviv welcomed teachers from the Lviv region in order to find answers to questions about the further development of natural sciences in the conditions of war.
More information about the event is available on the website of the Department of Education and Science of the Lviv Regional State Administration
