The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics:
The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (2/3 CEA, 1/3 CNRS), about thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.
The traditionnal IPhT courses start this week (Friday September 19) with the first of a series of four lectures by Roger Balian on "Quantum Measurement Theory". They will be continued during the 201415 academic year with courses by David Kosower, Bertrand Eynard, Filippo Vernizzi and Grégoire Misguich. For more info see the program of the lectures.

Bertrand Eynard has been nominated by the Centre de Recherches Mathématiques (CRM) in Montreal on an Aisenstadt Chair, for the second semester 2015, related with the thematic semester devoted to the topics AdS/CFT, Holography, Integrability. This Chair will give him the opportunity to give a series of lectures on his work, and to write a monography, jointly published by the CRM and the American Mathematical Society. Since their creation in the 1970', the Aisenstadt Chairs have welcome the the CRM the most prestigious mathematicians. Bertrand has been a permanent member of IPhT since 1995. He has worked on the theory of random matrix models. Together with his former student Nicolas Orantin, he has developed the method of "topological recurrence", which has since then spread into various domains of mathematics (knot theory, geometry of Riemann surfaces, algebraic geometry) and theoretical physics (integrable systems, topologocal string ...

The conference "Strings, Matrices, Integrability" will take place 1820 August 2014 at École normale supérieure, Paris. It is held in conjunction with the 60th birthdays of our friends and colleagues Ivan Kostov (IPhT) and Vladimir Kazakov (LPTENS). The conference is a part of the XLIVème Institut d'été and will cover wide range of subjects in quantum field theory, string theory and statistical mechanics, including: GaugeString Duality, AdS/CFT correspondence, Integrability, Supersymmetric Field Theories, Conformal Field Theory, Random Matrices.
