String Theory

Project leader: Marcos Mariño (University of Geneva)

String theory is a complex network of ideas and techniques with four main lines of research: first of all, string theory, as a “theory of everything”, provides a framework to construct unified models of particles and interactions beyond the Standard Model.

Secondly, string theory is a consistent theory of quantum gravity, and therefore makes it possible to address fundamental questions in this area, such as the origin of black hole entropy. On the conceptual level, it provides new insights into the nature of “quantum geometry”.
