Members of the Karlsruhe team

Associate members of the Karlsruhe team

The Karlsruhe team consists of Stefan Gieseke and his group.

The research in the Karlsruhe team is centered around the event generator Herwig++. The main topics of research are the development of matching and merging strategies of parton showers and higher order perturbative calculations and the development of a model for Underlying Event and Minimum Bias physics.

The environment in Karlsruhe is ideal for training ESRs. There are two theory institutes, the Institut für Theoretische Physik and the Institut für Theoretische Teilchenphysik with a large number of academic staff and postdocs at the university with expertise in Higgs-physics, B-physics, Multiloop computations and other LHC/Monte Carlo related areas. This is complemented with a large involvement in present and future collider experiments (CMS, Belle) and neutrino experiments and astroparticle physics at the Institut für Experimentelle Kernphysik at the North Campus. The regular curriculum includes advanced courses in theoretical and experimental particle physics. In depth teaching for all graduate students is supplemented by the Graduiertenkolleg Elementary particle physics at highest energy and precision and the graduate school KSETA.
