Speaker Event Type
Nov 21 2016 - 15:00 Current status of the theory predictions for the Higgs inclusive cross section Elisabetta Furlan The discovery of the Higgs boson opened the exploration of the sector that induces the breaking of the electroweak symmetry. Seminar
Nov 24 2016 - 12:00 PhD forum: 2nd meeting David Gordo & Sebastian Schwieger Second meeting in a series where PhD students of physics talk about their research. Seminar
Nov 24 2016 - 15:00 Thermalisation of Wightman Two-Point Functions in AdS/CFT Philipp Kleinert At first sight, non-local and local probes in holographic models of thermalisation appear to reach their equilibrium values on very different time scales. Seminar
Dec 7 2016 - 15:00 On the trace anomaly of a Weyl fermion Fiorenzo Bastianelli Recent studies have suggested that the trace anomaly of chiral fermionsin four dimensions coupled to gravity might contain an imaginary part Seminar
Dec 12 2016 - 15:00 Searches for sterile neutrinos and other new physics with the IceCube detector Jordi Salvado In this talk I will show the potential of IceCube to explore new physics in the context of neutrino oscillations. Seminar
Dec 13 2016 - 15:00 Emergent hydrodynamics in integrable quantum systems out of equilibrium Benjamin Doyon  I will present a novel framework for studying transport in integrable systems: that of emergent hydrodynamics with infinitely-many conservation laws. Seminar
Dec 16 2016 - 15:00 Higgs lepton flavour violation: UV completions and connection to neutrino masses Nuria Rius We study lepton violating Higgs (HLFV) decays, first from the effective field theory (EFT) point of view, and then analysing the different high-energy realizations of the operators of the EFT, high Seminar
Dec 22 2016 - 12:00 Tensor networks and conformal field theory on the lattice Guifre Vidal  The multi-scale entanglement renormalization ansatz (MERA) has been shown over the last 10 years to offer an accurate description of ground states of quantum critical lattice Hamiltonians in Seminar
