Cornell Theoretical Particle Physics Group


About Us

Cornell Particle Theory group consists of 12 faculty members (7 active, 3 emeritus, and 2 adjunct), 4 postdocs and 13 graduate students. We pursue research on string theory, string cosmology, physics beyond the standard model, collider physics, flavor physics, lattice gauge theory, particle astrophysics, and applications of quantum field theory to condensed matter systems. Our research is made possible by generous support of the National Science Foundation.

Seminars and Events

Theory seminar is held weekly on Wednesdays at 2:00 pm. Journal club (more informal talks, typically by group members) is held on Fridays at 12:30 pm. (Occasionally, external speakers are scheduled to talk on Fridays as well.) All meetings are in PSB 401, unless explicitly specified otherwise.

Seminar organizers are Paul McGuirk and Javi Serra.

Other recent and upcoming events:

* Monte Carlo Tools for Physics Beyond the Standard Model, March 22-24, 2012

* Workshop on String Theory and Precision Cosmology, July 25-29, 2011
