Classical and Quantum Space-Time and Its Symmetries

There is accumulating evidence that in the next decades gravitational physics shall play an important and dominating role in expanding, both theoretically and experimentally, the existing horizons of our knowledge of fundamental laws of Nature. In this project it is proposed to study theoretically both the classical and quantum properties of space-time and its symmetries, focusing efforts in this extremely promising direction of contemporary research.

The project is based on the strong scientific ties and on-going collaboration between members of IDP. The main objective is to use the proposed program of collaboration as a centre of crystallization for otherwise diverse scientific interests of different members of the laboratory in general, and of the theoretical Gravity and Field Groups in particular.
