Research Information

Research Interests

Professor Argyres is working on the dynamics of strongly-interacting gauge theories with various amounts of supersymmetry and in various dimensions, where exact analytical control of some non-perturbative quantities in gauge theories is possible. He is exploring some of the more intriguing features of these solutions, including the existence of large classes of strong-weak coupling dualities and the role that higher-dimensional gauge theories and gravitational theories (string theory and M theory) play in deriving and organizing the low-energy solutions of many lower-dimensional gauge theories.
