The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:

The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.


Topological phases of matter: from the quantum Hall effect to spin liquids (June 11th - July 6th, 2018)    
imgIPhT will host a 4-week program on topological phases in condensed matter. The goal of this program, dubbed TopMat, is to gather some experts in the field interacting topological phases, such as fractional quantum Hall states or quantum spin liquids in magnets, to discuss the latest theoretical and experimental developments, and to favor informal discussions and new collaborations.

This program will welcome more than 30 invited participants in total, most of them from abroad and staying for more than one week. A preliminary list of participants is available on The detail scientific program, with about two talks per day (open to every one), will be available soon.

Scientific coordinators : Thierry Jolicoeur (LPTMS, Université Paris-Sud), Philippe Lecheminant (LPTM, Université de Cergy-Pontoise) and Grégoire Misguich (IPhT, CEA Saclay).

TopMat is organized and funded in the framework of the project 'PSI2' of the Université Paris-Saclay.

Nick Warner awarded an ERC Advanced grant to work at IPhT   


Nicholas Warner, Professor of Physics, Astronomy and Mathematics at USC, has just been awarded an ERC Advanced grant to work at IPhT for the duration of this fellowship. Already a visitor and regular collaborator of IPhT, Nick will arrive January 2019 to work on his program "QBH Structure: The Quantum Structure of Black Holes and the Recovery of Information" with IPhT researchers. He will bring his creativity, his energy and his enthusiasm to the CEA and the whole theoreticians community on this fundamental and fast growing subject, at the interface between fundamental interactions, cosmology and quantum information! Congratulations and welcome, Nick!

"Morphogenesis of Spatial Networks": a book by Marc Barthelemy   

"Provides the first comprehensive presentation of state-of-the-art knowledge about spatial networks"

This book develops a morphodynamical approach of spatial networks with a particular emphasis on infrastructure networks such as streets, roads and transportation networks (subway, train). The author presents the mathematical tools needed to characterize these structures and how they evolve in time. The book discusses the most important empirical results and stylized facts, and will present the most important models of spatial networks. The target audience primarily comprises research scientists interested in this rapidly evolving and highly interdisciplinary field, but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students interested in large networks.
