Anton Kapustin, physicist

Louis Michel Chair

Anton Kapustin is a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology. He is interested in quantum field theory in general, with applications to particle physics and condensed matter theory.

Anton Kapustin has made several important contributions to dualities and other aspects of quantum field theories. With Edward Witten, he discovered deep connections between the S-duality of supersymmetric gauge theories and the geometric Langlands correspondence.

In recent years, Anton Kapustin has focused on mathematical structures and classification schemes of topological theories and symmetrically protected fields and topological phases.
