Welcome

The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics was established by the University of Edinburgh to seek answers to fundamental questions about the universe. We do this by creating opportunities for researchers and students from around the world to come together to formulate new theoretical concepts, taking us beyond the limitations of current paradigms.

Algorithms23

Lattice Field Theories are a mature tool that yields robust predictions for precision tests of the Standard Model and potential BSM candidates. Larger volumes, finer lattice spacings and decorrelated configurations are some of the requirements to tame the systematic errors still affecting the current simulations. Improved algorithms, and strong mathematical ...

Topological Soft Matter

Soft materials and complex fluids are a fundamental component of modern industry and everyday life. The majority of the materials around us are made by chemical or physical crosslinking of linear polymers. However, a growing number of groups are exploring an entirely new class of materials with unique properties governed ...
