Florian Payen
Former member

Current position: Physics teacher at Haute Ecole Galillée.
I am involved in the following research direction:

Nonperturbative quantisation of gauge theories, noncommutative geometry and unification of the fundamental interactions

Development of nonperturbative quantisation techniques of gauge theories (Yang-Mills, topological, gravity) and their application to particle physics and quantum field theory at finite temperature (in particular, within the context of superconductivity).
Exploration of the consequences of noncommutative geometry in the search for the unification of the fundamental interactions (M-theory and superstrings, quantum gravity).
