Apr 5 2018 - 15:00 Perturbations in CFTs Kallol Sen I will discuss the aspects of the perturbations in CFTs from two different points of view. Seminar
Apr 9 2018 - 15:00 From the Weyl anomaly to partition functions Stefan Theisen Conformal field theories are the corner stones of
more general QFTs. I will describe their Weyl anomalies in the
presence of marginal deformations and how, in the
Apr 12 2018 - 15:00 Lepton number conservation and new probes of low-scale seesaw models Cedric Weiland The observation of neutrino oscillations requires an extension of the Standard Model that generates neutrino masses and mixing. Seminar
Apr 16 2018 - 15:00 Physics Beyond Colliders Jaeckel, J. Recently CERN has launched the Physics Beyond Colliders study that explores new experimental opportunities provided by the facilities and expertise available at CERN. Seminar
Apr 18 2018 - 11:00 Hadronic tau decays and the strong coupling Maarten Golterman I will discuss our recent determination of the strong coupling from hadronic tau decays, as measured by ALEPH and OPAL.   This determination is controversial, because the rather low tau mass makes Seminar
Apr 19 2018 - 15:00 Flavor physics in lattice QCD as a window into BSM physics: |Vcb| and the B -> D* l nu semileptonic decay Alejandro Vaquero Flavor physics provides a rich variety of phenomena that can be used to probe the SM without requiring the high energies present only in particle accelerators. Seminar
Apr 23 2018 - 15:00 Losing the IR: A New Framework for Holographic Area Laws Netta Engelhardt I will describe a new procedure for coarse-graining over the gravitational degrees of freedom inside a surface in the context of AdS/CFT. Seminar
Apr 25 2018 - 12:00 PhD Forum Diego Medrano & Javier Alonso Testable ALP in the Minimal Linear Sigma Model (Javier Alonso) Seminar
