Theoretical Particle Physics

Theoretical Particle Physics studies matter and its constituents at the most fundamental level. Theoretical studies are separated into formal mathematical aspects of the theories and into phenomenology that theoretically explains the phenomena observed in experiments and/or predicts others not yet observed. Our research group places special emphasis on phenomenology, thus maintaining a close collaboration with High Energy Experimental Physics.
