Research Groups at the Institute for Theoretical Physics

The Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) consists of four research groups. Their activities are described below.

Stefan Gieseke

Research interests: The simulation of exclusive final states at colliders with Monte Carlo Methods. Our research aims at the best possible description of all possible final states, first and foremost at the Large Hadron Collider but possibly also for collisions of electrons and positrons or hadrons when they are hit by cosmic particles at very high energies. We improve the standard model description, mostly of the strong interaction (Quantum Chromodynamics, QCD) with systematic perturbative methods or with models for strong hadronic interactions.

Milada M. Mühlleitner

Research interests: Collider physics, phenomenological investigations of models beyond the Standard Model, including precision calculations to Higgs observables, namely production (single and double Higgs) and decay processes; cornering the validity of the models considering theoretical and experimental constraints; baryogenesis and Dark Matter.

Research interests: Collider physics; QCD corrections; effective field theories; models of electroweak symmetry breaking; phenomenological investigations of mixed QCD/electroweak processes in hadronic collisions, e.g. vector boson scattering, weak boson pair production, etc.
