The field of theoretical high-energy physics has progressed enormously during the last 40 years. We have an extremely accurate theory, the Standard Model, that explains all current data. There are arguments, however, indicating that it is not the most fundamental description of nature. The UCR theory group studies modifications and extensions of the Standard Model in the hope of providing a yet more fundamental description of nature.
