The main areas of research of the program include quantum gravity, quantum field theory and string theory. Our focus is on the non-perturbative properties of quantum gravity, that is, the quantum gravity dynamics that cannot be obtained by studying fluctuations around flat spacetime. This regime of the theory is expected to govern the fundamental physics at extremely high energies, that is, at the Planck scale.
Members of our group have contributed a number of important results to this...
