Gravitational Physics Group

Gravitation lies at the boundary of particle physics and cosmology.

New insights into the relationship between gravitation and other forces will almost certainly change our view of the early moments of the Universe as well as the fundamental structure of matter. The Gravitational Physics Group reflects the scientific and public focus on these issues and covers both theory and experiment, providing a venue for discussion between these two scientific communities.
