The Theory of Causal Fermion Systems

A Novel Approach to Fundamental Physics

Although General Relativity and the Standard Model of elementary particles have shaped our current understanding of physics, there are many open questions to which these theories provide no answers. The Theory of Causal Fermion Systems is a novel approach to describe fundamental physics. 

This website provides a source of information to the general public, but also has the purpose of serving as a platform for the scientific community to share ideas and stimulate joint research.
