The Theoretical Physics Institute’s mission is to support theoretical physics research on campus and the province as well as provide opportunities for interactions among theorists across Canada. Founded in 1960, the TPI encourages collaboration between members and their graduate students and postdoctoral researchers across disciplines. Members are theoretical physicists drawn from physics, mathematics and chemistry departments. It supports workshops, colloquium/seminar speakers, and short- and long-term visits by researchers of international standing.
