String Theory

People Seminars Conferences Job Openings Contact

 

The String-Theory Group at the IPhT uses string theory to study gravity at its extremes:  black holes and cosmology. This research is also deeply linked with a wide-ranging research program in holographic field theory.  While string theory is expected to become manifest at such extreme “boundaries” of our universe, the string-theory group is also developing new methods, like generalized geometry and topological techniques, to explore how low-energy physics and small, positive cosmological constants can emerge from a description of the universe based in string theory.

Much of this research has a healthy symbiosis with other activities at the IPhT. In particular, conformal field theory, integrable systems, large-N matrix models, QCD amplitudes, gravitational waves, cosmology, and particle physics beyond Standard Model provide an invaluable background that informs and inspires the research into string theory.

 

The group is part of the string theory in greater Paris community.
