Professor Emeritus, Physics & Astronomy, UCLA
Theory of Elementary Particles, Astroparticle Physics and Phenomenology

Professor Peccei has made a number of seminal contributions to elementary particle physics. Together with Helen Quinn he proposed a solution to strong CP problem based on the Peccei–Quinn symmetry, widely considered the most elegant explanation for the conservation of CP symmetry in strong interactions. He was a Fellow of American Physical Society and a recipient of the Sakurai Prize. Professor Peccei has served as a department Chairman, Dean of Physical Sciences, and Vice Chancellor for Research at UCLA.



Terry Tomboulis
Professor, Physics & Astronomy, UCLA
Theory of Elementary Particles, Astroparticle Physics and Phenomenology
Office: PAB 4-919

Professor Tomboulis' main current interests are focused on nonperturbative aspects of field theory such as the infrared behavior of QCD and the phenomenon of quark confinement. He is also working on dynamical symmetry breaking and mass generation, as well as some aspects of quantum gravity. Professor Tomboulis is a Fellow of American Physical Society.
