Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology > Research

The theoretical particle physics and cosmology section at the Niels Bohr Institute is involved in a wide scope of research activities centered around quantum theories of gauge fields, gravity, cosmology and astroparticle physics.

Modern approaches to scattering amplitudes
Recent years have seen tremendous advances in both our understanding of quantum field theory and in our ability to make predictions for experiment.

Gravity and physics of black holes
The physics of black holes is still far from understood, and we seek answers to questions about what is inside black holes, and what they consist of.

String theory and M-theory
String theory is the leading candidate for a theory that unifies General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory.

Holography and strongly coupled field theory
The idea of Holography is that space, time and gravity is dual to a lower-dimensional Quantum Field Theory without gravity.

Integrability in the AdS/CFT correspondence
The AdS/CFT correspondence provides a framework in which quantum field theory and string theory constitute equivalent descriptions of the same system.

Quantum gravity

Research in quantum gravity aims at unifying two very successful theories that explain seemingly different aspect of our universe.

Effective field theory

The Standard Model of particle physics must be extended due to its deficiencies in explaining Dark Matter, Baryogenesis, Inflation and Neutrino masses.

Astroparticle physics and cosmology
Since its beginning the universe we live in has undergone a dramatic evolution. Starting from an extremely hot and dense environment with violent...
