High Energy Physics Seminars 2006-07
held at the Fields Institute

Overview
High-energy physics (HEP) at the University of Toronto is a comprehensive program involving experimentalists and theorists. Theoretical HEP seminar topics include string theory, early universe cosmology, physics beyond the standard model, and particle phenomenology, while experimental HEP seminar topics include both particle and astrophysics experiment. Experimentalists also hold weekly collaboration meetings, while theorists also hold a weekly internal journal club.
