2005 - Max Planck Research Award Astrophysics

- Quantum mechanics
- Quantum field theory
- Electron

His main research concerns Dark energy, Mathematical physics, Particle physics, Quintessence and Astrophysics. His Mathematical physics research incorporates elements of Critical exponent, Critical phenomena and Scalar. Christof Wetterich combines subjects such as Theoretical physics, Cosmological constant, Equation of state and Dark matter with his study of Quintessence.

The concepts of his Effective action study are interwoven with issues in Renormalization group, Functional renormalization group, Action and Yang–Mills theory. His Renormalization group study is concerned with the field of Quantum mechanics as a whole. The various areas that he examines in his Functional renormalization group study include Statistical physics, Exact solutions in general relativity and Quantum field theory.

- COSMOLOGY AND THE FATE OF DILATATION SYMMETRY (2217 citations)
- Exact evolution equation for the effective potential (1439 citations)
- Proton Lifetime and Fermion Masses in an SO(10) Model (1001 citations)

Christof Wetterich mainly focuses on Particle physics, Quantum mechanics, Mathematical physics, Theoretical physics and Dark energy. His research integrates issues of Gravitation, Quantum electrodynamics and Scalar in his study of Mathematical physics. While the research belongs to areas of Theoretical physics, he spends his time largely on the problem of Classical mechanics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Time evolution.

In his work, Cosmological constant problem is strongly intertwined with Cosmological constant, which is a subfield of Quintessence. Functional renormalization group is a subfield of Renormalization group that Christof Wetterich investigates. His Renormalization group research includes themes of Statistical physics, Critical exponent and Quantum field theory.

Christof Wetterich focuses on Theoretical physics, Quantum mechanics, Mathematical physics, Quantum gravity and Dark energy. His study in Theoretical physics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Scalar field, Universe, Gauge symmetry and Massless particle. His biological study deals with issues like Observable, which deal with fields such as Primordial fluctuations.

He interconnects Gravitation, Planck mass, Scalar potential and Symmetry in the investigation of issues within Quantum gravity. Christof Wetterich has researched Dark energy in several fields, including Neutrino and Particle physics. His Functional renormalization group study combines Renormalization group and Renormalization studies.
