The Laboratory of Theoretical and High Energy Physics (LPTHE) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 7589) of the University Pierre et Marie Curie and the CNRS. It is affiliated with the CNRS Institute of Physics (INP). It comprises 19 CNRS researchers and 10 university professors.
The scientific activity at LPTHE is centered on the unifying principle of Quantum Field Theory, both in its most theoretical aspects and in its applications.
The following areas are represented at LPTHE:
The LPTHE is a university laboratory. More than a third of its members are also professors, which is a high ratio in the French theoretical physics community.
