Particles, Strings, and the Early Universe

The Collaborative Research Center 676 (Sonderforschungsbereich 676) at Hamburg University is a research programme at the interface of Particle Physics, String Theory and Cosmology. Significant developments are taking place in each of these fields, and far-reaching scientific results are expected in the course of the next 20 years.

In order to benefit from the fruitful interplay between these different fields, the SFB includes researchers from many different backgrounds, reaching from Particle Physics, over to numerical modeling in Astrophysics, to Mathematics. Eliminating the traditional borders between these subjects has proven to be inspirational and has led to interesting interdisciplinary research projects.

  • Find more information about the scientific programme at the homepages of the various projects.

  • Various lecture courses are offered to graduate students during the first two years of their education.

The SFB 676 is part of the key research area “Particle, Astro and Mathematical Physics” at the Universität Hamburg.
