Jan 25 2016 - 15:00 Black resonators: evading black hole theorems and the path to cosmic censorship violation Oscar Dias Superradiance is the wave analogue of the Penrose process whereby energy and angular momentum can be extracted from a black hole. Seminar
Jan 28 2016 - 15:00 The DARK ENERGY SURVEY, status, current results, and mocks. Marc Manera The Dark Energy Survey (DES) is an ongoing large galaxy survey that aims to unravel the nature of the dark energy,  which powers the current accelerated expansion of the universe. Seminar
Jan 31 2016 - 21:45 TBA tba Seminar
Feb 1 2016 - 15:00 Aspects of entanglement negativity in quantum field theory and lattice models Erik Tonni
Feb 8 2016 - 15:00 Undecidability of the spectral gap David Perez Garcia The spectral gap—the energy diference between the ground state and first excited state—is central to quantum many-body physics. Seminar
Feb 11 2016 - 15:00 Nature loves us, loves us not… Oriol Pujolas While awaiting for the LHC final verdict, theorists are preparing for the possible outcomes -- zero or some evidence for new physics. Seminar
Feb 15 2016 - 15:00 Solar models, neutrinos, and composition Aldo Serenelli Standard solar models (SSMs) provide a reference framework across a number of research fields: solar and stellar models, solar neutrinos, particle physics the most conspicuous among them. Seminar
Feb 22 2016 - 15:00 Using dark energy to suppress power at small scales Savvas Nesseris The latest Planck results reconfirm the existence of a slight but chronic tension between the best-fit Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and low-redshift observables: power seems to be consistently Seminar
