Particle Physics and Cosmology

Chung Wook Kim has developed, with Henry Primakoff, the elementary-particle treatment of nuclei by incorporating the nuclear complexity in the form factors rather than in the wave functions. The treatment greatly facilitated the understanding of complex nuclear weak and electro-magnetic processes. He has contributed to many subjects in neutrino physics, in particular three generation analysis of neutrino oscillations in matter and geometrical as well as the wave packet treatments of the oscillation phenomena in matter. The possibility of a grand unification of three running coupling constants of strong, electromagnetic and weak interactions in the framework of super-symmetry theory was first demonstrated by Prof. Kim.
