Theoretical Particle Physics

Emeritus Professor
PhD Indiana University, 1964

Research Summary:

Prof. Srivastava’s main research interest has been in high-energy theory and phenomenology. Recent work deals with the Top quark search at LEP II; Composite models for the top and the Higgs; Rigorous results regarding confinement of quarks and gluons and all colored states in QCD; New results about the temporal development of K-long and K-short system and the theoretical discovery of induced oscillations of strangeness. Some tests have been proposed regarding the EPR space-like correlations and EPT time like correlations at the forthcoming Italian facility DAFNE as well as in quantum optics.
