String theories and their phenomenological applications

Objective




We propose to conduct research on various aspects of string
theory and 2d gravity.The goals are on the one hand a unification of all particle interactions, including gravity, and on the other possible applications in statistical mechanics and in particular systems where fluctuating surfaces play a role. We will more precisely address the problems of identifying a realistic ground state, breaking space-time supersymmetry, exploring string
symmetries, and understanding the issue of stability and the vanishing of the cosmological constant. We will furthemore

examine strings at very high energies and/or temperatures and their cosmological implications. Finalally we will study discrete random surfaces and possible phases of non-critical strings.
