Elementary Particle Physics – Branch of physics concerned with the nature and properties of subatomic particles especially through the study of high-energy collisions and decays.
Statistical Mechanics – Branch of physics concerned with predictions of the behavior of macroscopic systems based on the interactions of the microscopic constituents of the system, where the number of constituents is very large.
