Theoretical Physics

Our understanding of the physical world at its most fundamental level relies strongly on the standard model of particle physics, which currently describes the interactions of elementary particles. This is a truly impressive theory since it encompasses length scales ranging from 10-17 cm to cosmological scales. The basic interactions explained in this model – electromagnetic, weak and strong – are responsible for all known fundamental physical phenomena. In order to connect our understanding of these interactions with observation, theoretical physicists use quantum field theory, a technical instrument which has produced definite predictions that have been tested with unprecedented precision over the previous decades.
