The Theoretical High Energy Physics group (HEP Theory) at the U. Oviedo works mainly on the many facets of String Theory, ranging from the microscopic to the macroscopic, from 0 to 26 dimensions, and from a single object in String Theory to many. Apart from String Theory related research, the group also researches Finite Temperature Field Theory and Mathematical aspects of Geometry.
Participation in Research Projects

The group participates, and in fact is one of the originators, of the The String Theory Universe research network financed by the EU's COST framework.
The Network is roughly organised into the following four Working Groups:
WG1  Gauge/Gravity Duality,
WG2  String Phenomenology,
WG3  Cosmology and Quantum Gravity,
WG4  Dissemination and Knowledge Transfer.
For more information see:
Events organised by the network,
Short Term Scientific Missions,

PostDoc and Ph.D. positions.
 The research of the group is also financed by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competition through the collaborationgrant Teoría de Cuerdas, Teorias Gauge y la correspondencia AdS/CFT (Ref. FPA201235043C02), in which we collaborate with members of the Instituto de Física Teórica and the Basque Foundation for Science.
 The group was part of the TMR network:
Constituents, fundamental forces and symmetries of the Universe (Ref. MRTNCT2004005104)
whose local coordinator was Yolanda Lozano.
