Quantum Field Theory and String Theory

Quantum Field Theory is the framework that unifies Quantum Mechanics and Special Relativity. One application of this framework that is of paramount importance is the description of elementary particles and all their known interactions, except for the gravitational one, in the so-called Standard Model of Particle Physics.

ICCUB Contribution

Research at the ICCUB covers many aspects of Quantum Field Theory, from the most phenomenological, as described in Particle Physics Phenomenology, to the most formal. The latter include the study of conformal and/or supersymmetric theories in different numbers of dimensions, both in their own right and in connection with the gauge/string duality. [+]
