Uwe Trittmann

Uwe Trittmann

Professor


Dr. Trittmann is a theoretical particle physicist. After receiving his doctorate from the University of Heidelberg in Germany, he did post-doctoral research at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and at the Ohio State University. His research focuses on the properties of lower-dimensional quantum field theories. Often he uses numerical methods to obtain results concerning the energies (masses) of bound states of fundamental particles. Dr. Trittmann teaches the gamut of physics offerings, from the introductory sequency to advanced topics, and the INST astronomy course. He is…
