The Institute for Theoretical Particle Physics (TTP) consists of three research groups. You can find description of their activities below.
Members of the Institute collaborate very closely with the research group in theoretical particle physics at the Institute for Nuclear Physics (IKP).
Research interests: LHC physics, QCD, precision tests of the Standard Model, scattering amplitudes, Higgs physics, top quarks and vector bosons.
Quark and lepton flavour physics, with emphasis on flavour-changing neutral current (FCNC) processes: Improvement of Standard-Model predictions for decay rates and CP asymmetries. Calculations in models of new physics, e.g. with enlarged gauge groups, extended Higgs sectors, supersymmetry, or a link to Dark Matter.
Precision calculations in the Standard Model (SM) and extensions. This includes the precise determination of SM parameters (e.g. quark masses and strong coupling), higher order corrections to Higgs boson and top quark production, to B meson decays, and to the muon anomalous magnetic moment.
Research interests: Dark matter searches at accelerators and laboratory experiments; phenomenology of hidden sectors with new light particles beyond the Standard Model; global fits of data from particle physics, astrophysics and cosmology; effective theories and simplified models; statistical methods and machine learning.
