Lincoln D. Carr is an American Professor of physics at Colorado School of Mines and Alexander von Humboldt Fellow.

Carr has a broad range of theoretical interests covering many disciplines, using an even balance of analytical and numerical methods, and often working closely with experimentalists. Subjects Carr has worked on include entangled quantum dynamics, quantum phase transitions, and ultracold quantum gases; artificial lattice systems, from optical lattices to graphene to millimeter waves; solitons, vortices, chaos, fractals, and other nonlinear phenomena in nonlinear Schrodinger and nonlinear Dirac equations as realized in Bose-Einstein condensates, spin waves in ferromagnetic films, and optics; the quark-gluon plasma at CERN and RHIC; and a variety of topics in mathematical physics and the physics of complex systems. Lincoln is honored to mentor an intense, active, diverse research group averaging 15 persons and including undergraduates, MS and PhD graduate students, and post-docs.
