Theoretical Physicists in India

Theoretical Physicists in India

There are many research centers and researchers in India working in hep-th (High Energy Physics, Theory), gr-qc (General Relativity/Quantum Cosmology) and quant-ph (Quantum Physics). However they are scattered all over the place and I have not been able to find a place which lists the names of places and individuals working in these fields in India. So, I figured, why not make a list! Here is my attempt at making one. It is, hopefully, a continuing work to be expanded over time. Naturally, this list reflects my own intellectual biases and is not meant to be a comprehensive list of all researchers in theoretical physics in India.
