Elementary Particle Physics

The main goal of Elementary Particle Physics is to understand Nature at its most fundamental level. This effort has a long distinguished history, and much progress has been made. There is now a Standard Model which accurately describes (within a framework called quantum field theory) much of the known matter and forces. But surely this is not the end of the story, and much effort is being devoted to understanding physics "beyond" the Standard Model. One promising possibility is string theory. Members of the group are working on various aspects of quantum field theory and string theory.
