The Centre for High Energy Physics at the Indian Institute of Science is dedicated
to research in the field of elementary particle physics and quantum field theory. It has
a highly accomplished world class faculty trained in these subjects.
Research is carried out in the fields of standard model physics at high precision,
beyond the standard model scenarios based on theoretical consistency and
with the aim of uncovering novel effects at ongoing and future experiments,
analysis of properties of matter under extreme conditions and revealing them in
computational studies, mathematical aspects of quantum field theory in various settings
such as string theory as well as non-commutative physics, applications
of methods developed in quantum theory in diverse settings such as condensed matter
physics as well as quantum computing, and most recently, analysis of ongoing experimental
results at the CMS experiment at CERN.
The Centre has a highly developed teaching programme of its own, training students
at the research level. It also jointly conducts the Int. Ph. D. programme with the
Department of Physics, and participates in the activities of the Undergraduate programme
of IISc. The Centre has an active visitors programme that encourages scholars from
around the country and the world to visit and collaborate with the members of the Centre.
The members of the Centre also carry out in-house activities such as seminars, journal
clubs and other discussion fora, and organize topical conferences and workshops. In
addition, they frequently lecture at national and international schools, and travel
extensively to centres of excellence across the world to carry out collaborative work
and to present their research results.
