Project Description

In order to study the strong coupling regime of QCD (Quantum Chromodynamics) it is useful to use strong-weak dualities. By embedding the field theory in string theory it is possible to gain a better understanding of the gauge theory dynamics. The aim of this project is to construct new dualities in both string theory and in field theory.

Entry requirements

Candidates must have a minimum of an upper second class honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject, or an appropriate Master’s degree (with Merit). Informal enquiries are welcome by emailing the project supervisor.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.
