Theoretical Physics Group, University of Toyama

The Theoretical Physics Group at the University of Toyama addresses fundamental theoretical questions in particle physics and cosmology. The research activities of our group are focused on

  • particle physics phenomenology;
  • particle cosmology.

The Theoretical Physics Group has now two faculty members ( Prof. Takeshi Kurimoto, and Prof. Mitsuru Kakizaki) and 8 graduate students, and forms part of the Department of Physics of the Faculty of Science at the University of Toyama.

The Theoretical Physics Group is located in Toyama City in Toyama Prefecture, Japan. Our group benefits from the geographical vicinity of the Kamioka Observatory, Institute for Cosmic Ray Research, University of Tokyo.
