Welcome to the
Theoretical High Energy Physics Group at the University
Southern California. We are part of the Department of Physics
in the College
Letters, Arts and Sciences
. We are located on the second floor of
the Seaver Science Center (SSC) on the University
Our research focuses on Superstring Theory, M-Theory, and Conformal
Field Theory. We develop ideas and theoretical tools for the precise
description of the fundamental constituents of Nature and their
interactions. These ideas apply to physics on the smallest scales, such
as those involving elementary particles, and
also to the largest scales, encompassing the entire Universe in which
live, and perhaps beyond.
The techniques developed in studies of this sort are also well known to
apply to many other systems, such as condensed matter physics, the
physics of which underlies almost every component in the computer
using to view this page, and allow for the most accurate computations
of measured physical phenomena ever performed.
We are very active in
areas such as supergravity theory, string field theory,
non-perturbative quantum field theory, conformal field theory, black
hole physics, gauge/gravity correspondences, branes, and various types
duality and M-theory.
