In the Laboratory of Theoretical Physics several problems of high energy physics, theories of gravitation and mathematical physics are investigated. The main topics include
extensions of Einstein's general relativity, theoretical cosmology: inflation, dark energy, dark matter;
electroweak phenomenology in the Standard Model and beyond, taking into account mass and polarisation effects;
looking for New Physics in extensions of the Standard Model and under the paradigm of chaotic chains;
relativistic quantum information theory.
