Particle theory and cosmology
Abstract
The major thrust of the research reported was in the area of unified theories, in particular in grand unified and higher dimensional superstring theories. The problems that were addressed included: (1) the construction of realistic low energy (four dimensional) gauge models motivated from the tendimensional E8 x E8 superstring theory; (2) a study of the phenomenological and cosmological implications of such models; (3) implementation of the inflationary scenario in the context of higher dimensional theories of gravity; and (4) clarification of the role of extended structures such as strings, monopoles and domain walls in a cosmological setting, particularly in an inflationary cosmology.
