[lattice] My research group belongs to the Research Focus "Elementary Particle Physics" of the Department of Physics.
Fields of interest of my group are: Quantum Field Theory and the Theory of Elementary Particles.
A somewhat more detailed description can be found here.

A focal point is quantum field theory on a lattice.

There is a textbook available on this:
I. Montvay, G. Münster: Quantum Fields on a Lattice.

Some current projects:

Members of my group.

A textbook for physics students:

G. Münster: Quantentheorie, de Gruyter, 2010
2nd revised and extended edition

An anthology on the philosophy of mind, also for beginners:

J. G. Michel, G. Münster (Hrsg.): Die Suche nach dem Geist, mentis, Münster, 2013

Pauli number: 4


My offer of public lectures for pupils and adults.


Current term:
[Feynman diagram] Past: Textbooks: Lecture Notes (mostly in german):

The Golden Path to a perfect seminar talk (in german)


Lecturing is a process, where the notes of the teacher become the notes of the student without passing through the mind of either.

If you are bored, you can see a movie here.

Or you have a look at some Popular Fallacies in Physics (in german), so that on the next physicists party you can shine.

Here are two surf tips:
the homepage of Gerard 't Hooft
and Britney Spear's Guide to Semiconductor Physics.

A poem.
And another poem.

How I became a pastor:     [Pfarrer Gernot Münster] (click on it).      In addition a look into the library of theology.


Publications from my group

Curriculum Vitae

Bachelors theses, Masters theses, Diploma theses, teachers theses, PhD theses, and Habilitation theses from my group

h-Index (Hirsch-Index): 24

The h-Index ( Hirsch-Index ) is a bibliometric measure for the total impact of an authors publications.

By the way, I am collecting autographs of physicists. For example, I have books with dedications of Heisenberg, Jordan and others. The nicest piece in my collection is this postcard (click on it)
[Nobel postcard]
with the signatures of E.P. Wigner, P.A.M. Dirac  and  J. Schwinger.

Here I am next to Michael Creutz on LATTICE2001 in Berlin:
[M. Creutz, G. Münster]

Some more pictures are in my physicists foto album.

This picture shows me with a colleague from math:
[C.F. Gauss, G. Münster]
At the tomb of Leonhard Euler in St. Petersburg:
[C.F. Gauss, G. Münster]

Some journals that might be of interest to a field theorist.
