    Dualities in String/M-theory and Quantum Gravity

    Group Introduction

    String/M-theory is a strong candidate for quantum gravity and provides a theoretical framework for unifying various interactions in nature. In this research group, we study the structure of classical and quantum gravity via various fascinating ideas in string/M-theory, especially dualities, and exploit them to various interesting problems. It encompasses scattering amplitudes, black hole physics, gauge/gravity duality, double copy, and the mathematical structure of stringy geometry.
