At the University of Oregon theoretical research spans a range of fundamental problems, from dynamics of small atoms and molecules, to properties of macromolecules in condensed systems. Theoretical methods range from purely analytical to computationally intensive. Theorists at Oregon have collaborations with a variety of experimental groups, locally and around the world. Specific areas of focus include: fundamental approaches to electron correlation in atoms; new analytical methods for description of molecular potentials; new methods for chaotic dynamics and theoretical analysis of experiments on highly excited molecules; theory of time-resolved optical measurements in condensed phases; optical control of molecular dynamics; statistical mechanics of structure and time dependent phenomena of materials such as liquid crystals, glasses, carbohydrates, polymers, and proteins; theory of random processes where fluctuations are important, including Brownian motion.
