High Energy, Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics


String Phenomenology and Cosmology

The main motivation to study string theory is because it promises to provide a framework to unify all matter and interactions, including gravity, in a consistent theory. Despite the intrinsic difficulty of dealing with a theory that manifests itself at scales as high as the Planck mass, for more than 25 years there has been continuous progress in order to connect string theory and low-energy physics. This refers to extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics and cosmology that could lead to some observable implications.
