  • Top-quark physics at colliders

    Uwer, Peter, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. (Theoretical Physics / Phenomenology of Elementary Particles beyond the Standard Model)

    Duration of Project: 01/2009 - 12/2014

    Financer: DFG: Sonderforschungsbereich - Beteiligungen

    The top-quark, the heaviest known elementary particle, is an excellent probe of the fundamental interactions at (sub)attometer distances. Theoretical investigations of the production and decay of these quarks are essential for the analysis of the cor ...

  • RTG 2575/1: Rethinking Quantum Field Theory

    Plefka, Jan, Prof. Dr. (Theoretical Physics / Quantum Field Theory beyond the Standard Model and String Theory)

    Duration of Project: 04/2020 - 09/2024

    Financer: DFG: Graduiertenkollegs

    Recent findings have revealed that the Standard Model of particle physics – which brings together the current understanding of the physics of elementary particles in a quantum field theory – requires rethinking. Using a broad research approach, the R ...

  • RTG 1504/1: Mass, Spectrum, Symmetry: Particle Physics in the Era of the Large Hadron Collider

    Plefka, Jan, Prof. Dr. (Theoretical Physics / Quantum Field Theory beyond the Standard Model and String Theory)

    Duration of Project: 04/2009 - 12/2013

    Financer: DFG: Graduiertenkollegs

    The standard model of elementary particle physics summarizes our theoretical understanding of the nature of elementary particles and has been formidably confirmed by experiment in the last decades. It is nevertheless clear that the standard model onl ...

  • Physics at the Terascale

    Uwer, Peter, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. (Theoretical Physics / Phenomenology of Elementary Particles beyond the Standard Model)

    Duration of Project: 01/2009 - 12/2014

    Financer: Mischfinanzierung (Schwerpunkt Bund)
    Physics at the Terascale: Physics Analysis, Grid Computing, Detector Physics and Accelerator Physics

    Research in particle physics is motivated by the goal of attaining a fundamental description of the laws of physics, such as explaining the origi ...
  • Phenomenological studies of top-quark properties at hadron collider

    Uwer, Peter, Prof. Dr. rer. nat. (Theoretical Physics / Phenomenology of Elementary Particles beyond the Standard Model)

    Duration of Project: 07/2012 - 06/2015

    Financer: BMBF

    The main goal of the project is to improve our current understanding of top-quark properties using experimental input obtained in hadronic collisions. Top-quark physics is one of the central research topics at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Since t ...

  • JRG/1: Exploring the Landscape of String Theory Flux Vacua Using Exceptional Field Theory

    Malek, Emanuel, Dr. (Junior Research Groups)

    Duration of Project: 08/2020 - 07/2023

    Financer: DFG: Nachwuchsgruppe

    String theory, our most-developed theory of quantum gravity, is only consistent in ten dimensions. Nonetheless, we can obtain insight into lower-dimensional physics by "compactifying" it, i.e. considering string theory on spaces where some dimensions ...

  • JRG/1: Exact Results in Extended Holography

    van Tongeren, Stijn Jurrien, Dr. Ph.D. (Theoretical Physics / Mathematical Physics of Space, Time and Matter)

    Duration of Project: 09/2018 - 08/2023

    Financer: DFG: Nachwuchsgruppe

    The study of integrable models in the AdS/CFT correspondence has provided deep insights into string theory, the holographic principle, and the finite coupling behavior of quantum field theory. The proposed research group would aim to extend this appr ...

  • JRG/1: A Large Radio Detector for Neutrinos in the Antarctic Ice

    Nelles, Anna, Dr. (Junior Research Groups)

    Duration of Project: 03/2018 - 02/2021

    Financer: DFG: Nachwuchsgruppe

    An efficient detector for neutrinos at energies between 10^16 and 10^20 eV will be the ultimate tool to unravel the origin of ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). Despite decades of research, the sources of UHECRs remain elusive, mostly due to com ...

  • International Max Planck Research School for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory (IMPRS)

    Kreimer, Dirk, Prof. (Theoretical Physics / Mathematical Physics)

    Duration of Project: 10/2016 - 09/2022

    The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Gravitation, Cosmology and Quantum Field Theory addresses fundamental questions about the nature of classical and quantum gravity and its links to the funda ...

  • Interdisciplinary Center for Research in Mathematical Physics

    Kreimer, Dirk, Prof. (Theoretical Physics / Mathematical Physics)

    Duration of Project: 01/2016 - 12/2020

    The Kolleg Mathematik Physik Berlin is an interdisciplinary center at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Its community of research groups shares a mutual interest in Mathematics and Physics. Quantum field theory is their unifying theme, which connects t ...
