Center for Theoretical Physics

A division of the Department of Physics and the Laboratory for Nuclear Science.

Our Research

We are a unified research and teaching center focused on fundamental physics. Our activities range from string theory and cosmology at the highest energies down through unification and beyond-the-standard-model physics, through the standard model, to QCD, hadrons, quark matter, and nuclei at the low energy scale.
