Computers are great. Ideas are better.

The DTP Group likes to push the line of failure-point predictions. These involve calculations that take modern methods and world-class technologies to their breaking-point. To make progress, by definition, this strategy invites new ideas, new physical stories, and ultimately the apprehension of novel structure.

The goal is deep physical insight, with a joy in developing and leveraging — for mutual benefit — domain expertise in scattering amplitudes, relativity, quantum field theory, string theory, and cosmology.

Like players of advanced chess, group members are encouraged to invoke algorithms and automation to aid in tactically navigating the diverging tree of candidate moves.

The group is located on the Saclay plateau, in the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IPhT), CEA-Saclay and University of Paris-Saclay.

The group is run by Dr. John Joseph M. Carrasco, Permanent Member of IPhT. You can find most of the group’s publications here. You can learn more about individual group members here.
