Theory of Particles, Fields and Strings

[Physics Dept] [UW Home]

Research activities in the UW Particle, Field, and String Theory group include elementary particle phenomenology, applications of quantum field theory, string theory, and cosmology. Current interests include gravitational descriptions of quantum field theories, particularly QCD-like theories, and related aspects of gauge/string duality, signatures of new physics potentially visible in hadronic colliders, novel extensions of the standard model and possible signatures of new physics, dark matter, dark energy, and mass-varying neutrino models, improved techniques for extraction of hadronic physics from lattice gauge theory, properties of high temperature gauge theories, large N limits and other aspects of non-perturbative field theory.
