QFT

Quantum field theory (QFT) provides the theoretical framework for models of quantum mechanics for subatomic particles. The premise of QFT is to treat each of these particles as excitations in underlying fields which interact with one another. Such interactions are described using Feynman diagrams (pictured right).

Lattice Holographic Cosmology

This project will aim to develop new theoretical field methods and massively parallel computational algorithms to be utilised on both new computational architectures (e.g. Intel Xeon Phi) and existing high performance computers (HPCs).

The ultimate goal is to make predictions for the power spectrum and non-gaussianties of the CMB which would then be falsifiable by comparison to the Planck and WMAP data.
