Leader: prof. Rikard von Unge, Ph.D.
The group works on various research topics related to fundamental laws of physics in order to find a unified theory of all interactions.
This requires deep understanding of mathematical structures used in theoretical physics as well as studying extensions and generalizations of experimentally verified theories.
Areas of research
String Theory - integrability, string sigma models, gauge-gravity duality, Tachyon condensation, pure spinor formalism
Loop Quantum Gravity - gravitational waves, possibility of Lorentz invariance violation
Supersymmetry and Supergravity - supersymmetric sigma model geometry, extended superspace, supersymmetry breaking
Quantum Field Theory - Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism, scattering amplitudes
