Recent research by Steve Gubser and collaborators focuses on three related themes:
- How do string theory and gravitational physics relate to the interactions among quarks and gluons?
- How can string theory be used to characterize systems at finite density and temperature?
- What new phemonena arise in quantum field theory when strongly time-dependent conditions are considered?
Gubser is actively involved in outreach, including publication of a non-technical book on string theory with Princeton University Press, entitled The Little Book of String Theory.
