Korkut Bardakci

Professor Emeritus
Particle Theory


Research Interests

I am interested in string theories in general and in the problem of tachyon condensation in the bosonic string in particular.

Current Projects

In collaboration with Konechny, a postdoctoral fellow in Berkeley, I am continuing work on the tachyon condensation problem. Recently, we have carried out the calculation of the one loop contribution to the tachyonic potential.
