Nov 12 2015 - 15:00 Beyond unitarity: new on-shell representations for loop amplitudes Simon Caron-Huot It has been very fruitful to learn to rephrase loop computations, in quantum field theory, in terms of tree-level building blocks. Seminar
Nov 16 2015 - 15:00 Signatures of scalar dark matter Michel Tytgat The universe is apparently filled with a new form of matter, called dark matter. The nature of dark matter remains a mystery but much hope is put in  weakly interacting massive particles or WIMPs. Seminar
Nov 23 2015 - 15:00 Phenomenology of semileptonic $B$-meson decays with form factors from lattice QCD Andreas Kronfeld In this talk, I discuss several application of semileptonic B-meson form factors. Seminar
Nov 26 2015 - 15:00 Comments on Disordered Conformal Field Theories Zohar Komargodski We consider Conformal Field Theories perturbed by quenched disorder. Such systems often flow to +new, disordered, fixed points of the Seminar
Dec 3 2015 - 15:00 GENEVA: an NNLO / NNLL event generator Christian Bauer I will discuss the event generator GENEVA, which combines fixed order calculations at NNLO with resummation at NNLL, all merged with a parton shower. Seminar
Dec 17 2015 - 15:00 Searching for P-odd effects in heavy ion collisions Domènec Espriu We investigate how local parity breaking due to large topological fluctuations may affect hadron physics in heavy ion collisions. Seminar
Jan 11 2016 - 15:00 The The black hole information paradox and the fate of the infalling observer Kyriakos Papadodimas  General Relativity predicts that the horizon of a large black hole is smooth. Seminar
Jan 12 2016 - 15:00 Viability criteria for extended theories of gravity Gonzalo Olmo Alba Seminar
