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.

Welcome to Monica Guica   

imgIt is with great pleasure that the IPhT greets Monica Guica. Starting September 1st, she joins the StringTheory group at IPhT.

After graduating in Harvard in 2008, and three postdoctoral positions (one at IPhT), Monica got a tenure Professor position in Uppsala in 2014, and en 2015 she was the recipient of a Starting Grant from the European Research Council  « Emergent-BH » (Emergent spacetime and maximale spinning black holes). She now joins the IPhT as a permanent CEA researcher.

Welcome Monica!

Does order exist in glasses ?   

img Glasses are ubiquitous in daily life and technology. However, the microscopic mechanisms generating this state of matter remain subject to debate: Glasses are considered either as merely hyperviscous liquids or as resulting from a genuine thermodynamic phase transition toward a rigid state. A team of theoreticians and experimentalists, including Giulio Biroli from IPhT, have devised an experiment based on new theoretical ideas to provide a smoking-gun answer to this long-standing controversy. Performing the corresponding high-precision nonlinear dielectric experiments for supercooled glycerol and propylene carbonate, they find strong support for theories based on thermodynamic amorphous order. Moreover, when lowering temperature, they find that the growing transient domains are
compact; that is, their fractal dimension df = 3. The glass transition may thus represent a class of critical phenomena different from canonical second-order phase ...

New book «Counting Surfaces» by Bertrand Eynard   

imgThe book "Counting Surfaces" by Bertrand Eynard just appeared in the collection "Progress in Mathematical Physics" by Birkhäuser. In 2015 Bertrand Eynard was the recipient of  the Chaire André Aisenstadt at CRM Montréal and gave courses to present his recent results. This book is published in connection with these courses. It presents the general theory of the enumeration of maps, of the counting of Riemann surfaces, its combinatorics, geometrical and topological aspects, and its connection with physics and mathematics (string theory, random matrix theory, algebraic geometry, integrable systems, topological recursion). This book is self contained and aims at graduate students as well as advanced researchers. It should hopefully  become quickly a classic!
