SYDUGRAM is an Advanced Grant ERC research project (2010), led by Marc Henneaux (Mathematics and Theoretical Physics Department, Faculty of Sciences)

String Theory currently offers one of the best opportunities for resolving the challenges posed by both reconciling gravity with quantum mechanics, and unification of the fundamental forces. Marc Henneaux, the head of the Mathematics and Theoretical Physics Department within the Faculty of Sciences and Director of the Solvay Institutes, is seeking the answers to these fundamental questions.
He is particularly interested in the concept of symmetry. Recently, fascinating new structures have been revealed in certain fields of gravity. These structures show an infinite number of symmetries, and are described by mathematical objects that are as yet only partially understood. Supported by the European Research Council, Marc Henneaux's project will take an in-depth look at the symmetries in gravity and string theory, advancing towards a complete formula.
