Who am I?

My name is Alexey Petrov. I am a Professor at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Wayne State University (one of the largest urban research Universities in the United States). I work in the field of Theoretical Physics of Elementary Particles and teach various physics courses. Here is my university website, where you can check my credentials, if you like.

My current research interests include phenomenology of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), mainly in applications to the heavy quark systems and studies of CP violation and indirect effects of New Physics.

The aim of theoretical high energy physics is to seek and understand the universal laws of Nature. The major thrust of research pursued by our particle theory group is to understand the issues pertaining to the understanding of the structure of the fundamental electroweak Lagrangian at the smallest scales and development of the theoretical tools needed for “clean” interpretation of the experiments designed to answer such fundamental questions as the origins of mass and CP-violation.

Given the complicated dynamics of strong interactions, the interpretation of experimental observables in terms of fundamental parameters is often complicated, which makes the study of the strong interaction effects absolutely crucial. In this regard, the promise of heavy quark states is that these effects can be studied systematically by exploiting symmetries arising in the limit of infinite mass of the heavy quark. The existence of the large scale associated with the mass of the heavy quark also allows for development of efficient and controllable approximations leading to significant reduction of theoretical uncertainties. The underlying theme behind all aspects of my work is the application of quantum field theory to the problems of particle phenomenology. In recent years I worked on a variety of problems in the theory and phenomenology of the strong, electromagnetic, and weak interactions. A partial list of research topics includes studies of the properties of heavy hadrons, applications of effective field theories to problems in Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), meson spectroscopy, and physics of CP-violation. I am also interested in applications of advanced analytical and numerical computational methods to studies of QCD.

These activities are supported by grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation and US Department of Energy.

Here is the list of my recent publications.

Important things first, Congratulations on the arrival of the little soul in your arms.

I have understood that symmetry is a tool of maths and physics and not sure nature pays much respect to it, with that in mind however we are seduced by the symmetry of patterning but how can this lead to superior understanding of forces?

Dear Sir ,

I studied the gravitational field circulation system for many years . Now I have discovered the field model. From the model , I can drive the Newton gravitational force equation.

Moreover, I see that the field model could explain the first stage of the Big Bang . I think that the field model make the Newton”s equation more and more expand and sophisticated.
Once, Newton said that I discover the gravitational force equation but I do not know how the gravity works .
My paper can answer the question How .
I believe that everybody also understand that easily.
I think that my paper will be used in the mathematical & theoretical Text books soon..
I want to describe my paper in your blog to share a story idea with you .
I send my paper to you with attached file .

Thank You ,
Yours sincearly ,

. Writing a five-paragraph essay just isn’t as difficult as it sounds, especially if you have power writing.
