Topquark 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  BeteiligungenThe topquark, 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: GraduiertenkollegsRecent 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: GraduiertenkollegsThe 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 ...

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 topquark 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: BMBFThe main goal of the project is to improve our current understanding of topquark properties using experimental input obtained in hadronic collisions. Topquark 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: NachwuchsgruppeString theory, our mostdeveloped theory of quantum gravity, is only consistent in ten dimensions. Nonetheless, we can obtain insight into lowerdimensional 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: NachwuchsgruppeThe 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: NachwuchsgruppeAn efficient detector for neutrinos at energies between 10^16 and 10^20 eV will be the ultimate tool to unravel the origin of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays (UHECRs). Despite decades of research, the sources of UHECRs remain elusive, mostly due to com ...

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 HumboldtUniversität 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 ...
