Panagiotis Moustanis studied Mathematics at the University of Perugia (Italy). Followng that he obtained a fellowship from N.C.S.R.: “DEMOKRITOS” where he followed a post-graduate course in Physics and completed his PhD in theoretical Physics of Condensed Matter.
His work was the exact calculation of all eigenvalues and eigenstates of Heisenberg Hamiltonians describing interactions between spins on various lattices, in order to calculate the thermodynamic properties of the lattices considered.
Fields of Interest
- Study of thermodynamic and magnetic properties of various lattices of magnetic ions interacting with a Heisenberg Hamiltonian. In particular, one and two-dimensional lattices are considered because of their connection with models of high-temperature superconductivity.
- Representation theory of symmetry groups and its application in solid-state physics.
