  • Causal set theory is an attempt to reconcile General relativity with Quantum Theory. It is what is called a theory of quantum gravity. It assumes that the fundamental reality is not a smooth manifold but is rather a discrete structure called a causal set. Some wonderful results have already come out of the causal set idea. Although a...
  • The use of optics in everyday life is ubiquitous. For example, internet is used all the time without realizing that ultimately these are light pulses that carry the information across the world on a fibre optic network. Even the foundations for contemporary television display technologies like LCDs, LEDs and three-dimensional TVs were...
  • The main area of interest is how quantum mechanics changes ideas about space-time. The fundamental uncertainties inherent in quantum mechanics cause severe deformation ofspace-time structure at very small scales, breaking down the smooth manifold structure of general relativity into something called quantum foam. Dr. Babar Ahmed Qures...
  • Surface plasmon-polariton (SPP) waves are guided by an interface of a metal and a dielectric material. Due to the localization of SPP waves to the interface, they are important in solar cells, chemical sensors, and plasmonic communication. Dr. Faryad has extensive experience in the study of SPP waves that are guided by interfaces of m...
  • The theory of Quantum Mechanics has led to major technological developments in the science industry, and may yet lead to many more novel advancements in the field as well. However, before doing so, it is essential to understand the dynamics of realistic open quantum systems, i.e. systems that interact uncontrollably with the surroundi...
  • In Dr. Sabieh Anwar’s multi-disciplinary research group, the aim is to explore the fundamental properties of materials, especially at the nanoscale, and their interaction with external radiation such as light or electromagnetic radiation. Some aspects of this research also bear societal implications. For example, the group is de...
  • Artificial Intelligence and Robotics research at LUMS is primarily focused on Applied Soft Computing, with contributions to the fields of Intelligent Speech and Natural Language Processing, Intelligent System Modelling, Simulation and Controls, Data Mining and Self Rule Generation, Artificial Intelligence, Databases and Aspect Oriente...
  • Theory of Computation is the formal study of the power as well as limits of computing machines. This is accomplished by the design of efficient algorithms as well as proofs of intractability for various computational problems. Theoretical computer science includes sub-areas such as Graph Theory and Algorithms, Randomized Algorithms, D...
  • ­Software Engineering is the study and application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of software. The focus of the research undertaken by the Software Engineering Lab is in the areas of Software Reengineering, Software Testing and Quality Assurance, Software Engineering for Smart Grids, Formal Verification...
