Particles & Fields

The goal of particle physics is to develop a thorough understanding of fundamental interactions of the smallest constituents of matter. The particle physics group at Penn State works on a variety of topics in particle physics phenomenology, strong interactions, neutrino physics, quantum field theory, mathematical physics, M/superstring theory and supergravity, and their connections with astrophysics and cosmology.
