Speaker Event Type
Apr 29 2019 - 15:00 The cosmic microwave background, dark matter and other stories Costas Skordis I review the impact of dark matter on the physics of the cosmic microwave background. Seminar
May 6 2019 - 15:00 The LHC's impact on the global electroweak fit R. Kogler The global electroweak fit has a long tradition in particle physics. Over the last decades, it has been crucial in understanding the standard model and assessing its validity. Seminar
May 9 2019 - 15:00 Threshold and abundance of primordial black holes: dependence on the profile of the cosmological perturbations Ilia Musco Primordial black holes can form in the early Universe from the collapse of cosmological perturbations after the cosmological horizon crossing. Seminar
May 13 2019 - 15:00 Exotic Compact Objects in Ricci-Based Gravity Theories Gonzalo Olmo After a brief review of the basic reasons that motivate exploring other theories of gravity beyond GR, I will focus on the particular framework of metric-affine theories and the predictions o Seminar
May 14 2019 - 11:30 A Tower Weak Gravity Conjecture from Infrared Consistency Stefano Andriolo We analyze infrared consistency conditions of 3D and 4D effective field theories with massive scalars or fermions charged under multiple U(1) gauge fields. Seminar
May 20 2019 - 15:00 Hadronic vacuum polarization contribution to the muon magnetic moment from lattice QCD Laurent Lellouch In the early 2000s, the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon, $a_\mu=(g_\mu-2)/2$, was measured with a remarkable precision of 0.54ppm. Seminar
May 23 2019 - 15:00 Super-cool dark matter Tomas Hambye In dimension-less theories of dynamical generation of the weak scale, the Universe can undergo a period of low-scale inflation during which all particles are massless and undergo super-coolin Seminar
May 27 2019 - 15:00 Infinite tensor networks for (1+1)d quantum field theories: lattice QED and chiral ladders Roman Orus In this talk I will first make a broad introduction to tensor network states and methods together with an overview of some recent developments. Seminar
