Alan Harvey Guth (/ ɡ uː θ /; born February 27, 1947) is an American theoretical physicist and cosmologist. Along with Alexei Starobinsky and Andrei Linde, he won the 2014 Kavli Prize "for pioneering the theory of cosmic inflation." Guth's research focuses on elementary particle theory and how particle theory is applicable to the early universe.
MIT Professor Alan Guth studies the early universe. He works on inflation, including the possibility of igniting inflation in a hypothetical laboratory to create a new universe and whether inflation is eternal – it’s always going on, somewhere in the universe.
Alan Guth. American physicist Alan Guth was best known for proposing the theory of an inflationary universe, a variation of the big-bang model that was highly influential in guiding modern cosmological thought. Guth, who taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, earned several scientific awards for his work, including the Benjamin ...

Alan H. Guth is the Victor F. Weisskopf Professor of Physics at MIT. Most of Professor Guth's research has centered on the application of theoretical particle physics to the early universe: What can particle physics tell us about the history of the universe, and what can cosmology tell us about the fundamental laws of nature?
