The SFB 676 has been funded by the DFG from 2006 to 2018. The project was completed with a special colloquium in June 2018. A book with the scientific results of the SFB 676 has been published in September 2018.

J. Haller and M. Grefe (eds.), “Particles, Strings and the Early Universe: The Structure of Matter and Space-Time,” Hamburg (2018), DOI: 10.3204/PUBDB-2018-00782.

Many research directions developed within the SFB 676 will be continued within the Cluster of Excellence "Quantum Universe" starting 1 January 2019.

String Theory

Section A of the SFB focuses on String Theory. The main points of interest are

  • improving the mathematical foundations of String Theory,

  • studying D-branes as dynamical objects from a mathematical, as well as from a particle physics point of view,

  • developing the cosmological and particle physics aspects of String Theory,

  • studying the connection between QCD and String Theory.
