String Theory and Supergravity



Research activity:

The main research lines pursued by our group are:

  • Supergravity (extended, gauged supergravities, applications to black hole physics and cosmology, p-branes and domain walls, Ads/CFT and gauge-gravity correspondence)
  • String Theory (String Field theory, String amplitudes, D-branes and Euclidean branes, String compactifications, String models for phenomenology and cosmology, String dualities)
  • Supersymmetric Gauge Theories (non-perturbative aspects of N=2 theories, localization, gauge/gravity duality, integrability)



The researchers of the group have participated in several MIUR-PRIN projects and to European research and training networks within various frameworks (Science, TMR, RTN, MRTN).

Currently, they are part of the MAST (Modern Application of String Theory) project (progetto di Ateneo 2012 funded by Compagnia di San Paolo) and of the 2015 MIUR-PRIN Project "Non-perturbative Aspects Of Gauge Theories And Strings" (Contract 2015MP2CX4).

They also participate to the activities of the European COST Network "The String Theory Universe".

We are cooperation partners of the international Gauge Theory as an Integrable System (GATIS) network, funded by the European Commission .

 We are members of the recently-founded  GATIS+ cooperation network involving 15 prestigious European institutions. GATIS+ is an interdisciplinary research and training network devoted to the development of  Gauge Theory  at the interface of  Mathematics, Statistical physics, Computer Algebra and Experiments.
