Welcome to the Theoretical Physics Group in Padova

The Theoretical Physics Group in Padova is active in several different branches of research on fundamental physics. Our activities range from the highest energies, close to the Planck scale, down through unification and beyond-the-standard-model physics, through the standard model, to nuclear physics at the low energy scale, also covering statistical and biological physics.

Members of our group are involved in various national and international research networks linked here:
