The High Energy Theory group is part of the Theoretical and Computational Physics group of the Physics Department of the National Technical University. It consists of 8 faculty members and 15 Ph.D. students working on related areas. Historically, the group started in the 80s having as group leader Professor G. Tiktopoulos. The larger group covers the areas of theoretical physics in high energy and particle theory, gravity, cosmology and condensed matter theory.
The research activities of the High Energy Theory group are on supersymmetry and supergravity, cosmology, superstring theory, modified theories of gravity, AdS/CFT duality, phenomenology, lattice gauge theories, black holes, quantum gravity, inifinite dimensional symmetries and non commutative geometry.
The group supports related courses in the undergraduate and graduate curricula of the Physics Department and offers Ph.D. positions in the above mentioned research areas.More Details
