DFG funds new Research Training Group "Rethinking Quantum Field Theory"

At HU newly established Research Training Group "Rethinking Quantum Field Theory" (Spokesman: Prof. Dr. Jan Plefka from the Department of Physics) will be funded for four and a half years, News from November 13, 2019

The Research Training Group (RTG) "Rethinking Quantum Field Theory" is based in the Physics Department of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU). From April 2020, it will be funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for four and a half years with about 4 Million Euro. The RTG will address urgent theoretical questions and significant innovations in quantum field theory (QFT) that go beyond established methods and the Standard Model of particle physics.

The RTG is headed by 12 principal investigators including senior and junior research group leaders, encompassing all groups working in theoretical high energy physics at the Department of Physics of the HU. Partners of the RTG are the Max-Planck-Institute for Gravitational Physics and the Helmholtz Center DESY. The RTG-spokesman Prof. Jan Plefka is supported by the deputy spokesmen Prof. Agostino Patella and Prof. Peter Uwer. Further involved are V. Forini (also City University London), Prof. C. Grojean, Dr. O. Hohm, Dr. M. Schulze, Dr. S. van Tongeren, Prof. D. Kreimer and Prof. M. Staudacher as well as the Honorary Professor A. Buonanno (MPI) and Prof. R. Sommer (DESY).
