The research activities of the group include the following subjects:
- Study and construction of theories of particle interactions in the framework of superstring and supergravity theories.
- Study of perturbative and non-perturbative supersymmetric quantum field theories.
- Formal developments in these theories.
The group works in close collaboration with CERN, Geneva and with several groups in Europe. It is financially supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation and the European Union.
