String Phenomenology, April 23rd – 27th, 2012

Organized by Mike Douglas, Gordon Kane and Dave Morrison String phenomenology is the field which attempts to make contact between string theory and “real world” physics such as experiments at particle colliders, cosmology and astroparticle physics.  Especially after the duality […]
