The main goal for founding the Scientific Center of Excellence for Quantum and Complex Systems, and Representations of Lie Algebras (QuantiXLie)- is to strongly reinforce the international visibility of theoretical physics and mathematics research conducted at Croatian universities and scientific institutes, ant to enable implementing large competitive projects for international programs.
ZCI QuantiXLie aims to create a motivating environment for learning and training of young researchers and provide a stable long-time financial framework for their education and professional development. Members of the QuantiXLie center are internationally recognized researchers who publish their results in leading international scientific journals, which gather significant number of citations and have impact on the scientific community.
The QuantiXLie group is composed of researchers from The Faculty of Science (PMF) of the University of Zagreb (UniZG), Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (UniZG), Faculty of Civil Engineering University of Zagreb (UniZG), Faculty of Metallurgy UniZG, Faculty of Textile Technology UniZG, Institute of Physics (IF), Ruđer Bošković Institute (IRB), Department of Mathematics – University of Rijeka and Faculty of Science of the University of Split (UniST).
The total potential of theoretical physics and mathematics in Croatia is far from the full utilization (even though it is a less expensive research from e.g. experimental physics) with potentially large impact. There is no stable source of funding for graduate students, resulting in the number of graduate students far below the mentoring capacity of researchers. Furthermore, each group of researches is concentrated on a relatively narrow area of research while synergy potential of research groups remains unrealized. The goal of the QuantiXLie center is to remedy all these deficiencies and take full advantage of the potential of our researchers.
