Theoretical High Energy Physics 
Itzhak Bars's current research is driven by fundamental questions in Cosmology, the Standard Model of elementary particles, and unification of forces including quantum gravity. He is pursuing the construction of the fundamental Mtheory through the formalisms of String Field Theory (SFT), while also developing computational techniques for applications of SFT. In his research on particle physics, quantum field theory, and string theory, he emphasizes fundamental principles, model building, symmetries and supersymmetries that shed light on the overall structure. Sometimes this led him to discover new physical concepts, such as TwoTime Physics (2TPhysics), as well as new mathematical tools, involving supergroups, noncompact groups, and noncommutative geometry. His supertableaux and noncompact supergroup techniques have many applications in physics and mathematics. Experimentally successful physics predictions include the recently measured first computation of the weak interaction contribution to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, and supersymmetry in nuclear physics. More details on his research interests can be found at his homepage.
