May 18 2017 - 15:00 Soft Hair and Black Holes Malcolm Perry I discuss the infinite collection of charges found in Minkowski space for electromagnetism. Seminar
May 22 2017 - 15:00 A new way to determine alphas(MZ)? Robert Harlander The so-called Yang-Mills gradient flow has become a successful concept in lattice calculations during the last few years. Seminar
May 23 2017 - 15:00 Non-geometric fluxes & tadpole conditions for exotic branes Fabio Riccioni We consider a T^6/[Z_2xZ_2] N=1 type-II orientifold model with non-geometric fluxes turned on. We determine the Seminar
May 25 2017 - 15:00 Applied Newton-Cartan Geometry Eric Bergshoeff I will give a non-specialist introduction into the non-relativistic version of Riemannian geometry, which is called Newton-Cartan geometry. Seminar
May 29 2017 - 15:00 A local factorization of the fermion determinant in lattice gauge theories Leonardo Giusti The numerical computations of many interesting theoretical and phenomenological

May 30 2017 - 15:30 A deformation of the Curtright action Sergio Hortner We present a deformation of the action principle for a free tensor field of mixed symmetry (2,1) -the Curtright action, a dual formulation of five-dimensional linearized gravity. Seminar
Jun 5 2017 - 15:00 Classification of inflationary models and constraints on fundamental physics. Mauro Pieroni In the first part of my seminar I propose a classification of inflationary models by using the most basic property of inflation: the approximate scaling invariance. Seminar
Jun 8 2017 - 15:00 T-branes and monopole deformations Roberto Valandro T-branes are exotic bound states of D-branes, characterized by mutually non-commuting vacuum expectation values for the worldvolume scalars. Seminar
