Séminaire de physique mathématique

Salle Claude Itzykson, Bât. 774 Orme des Merisiers

The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris.

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.


Hélène Dupuy receives a "L'Oréal - UNESCO for women in science" fellowship   


Hélène Dupuy, 3d year graduate student in cosmology at IPhT, under the supervision of Francis Bernardeau, was awarded a L'Oréal - UNESCO "For women in Science" fellowship 2014.

Every year, these fellowships are awarded in France to 10 outstanding graduate students, from all scientific domains, in order to support their research activities, as well as encourage outreach actions.

Our warm congratulations to Hélène!

Roger Balian and François David interviewed on quantum physics   


In December 2013, we interviewed two of our eminent scientists, Roger Balian and François David, about the foundations of quantum mechanics.  We have used the 17 questions ( educed to 15) of Maximilian Schlosshauer in his book "Elegance and Enigma: The Quantum Interviews" in order to set up a context in which to ask the questions.  The result is a movie that you can watch on this site. Enjoy the show !

Robi Peschanski sur France Culture   


Our Colleague and friend Robi Peschanski was interviewed last Saturday on the radio station France Culture as part of the series of “Scientific conversations” held each Saturday by Etienne Klein. Robi answered the question “In theory, what are looking for?” in this 45 minute long programme during which he has recalled snippets from his personal life and presented some of the  major landmarks of particle physics from the 1960’s to the present time.  You can download the interview following the link:
