Speaker Event Type
Sep 14 2015 - 15:00 Ultra-large-scale cosmology with future surveys David Alonso The forthcoming optical and radio observatories will, in the next decade or so, probe a large fraction of the whole observable Universe. Seminar
Sep 22 2015 - 12:00 Correlated worldline theory of quantum gravity: low-energy consequences & table-top tests P.C.E. Stamp It is often assumed that the clash between Quantum Mechanics (QM) and General Relativity (GR) happens only as one approaches the Planck energy. Seminar
Oct 1 2015 - 15:00 Lifshitz dynamics in the UV Mario Herrero Valea Lifshitz field theories are non-relativistic theories which enjoy an anisotropic scaling between space and time driven by an exponent z. Seminar
Oct 15 2015 - 02:00 The Standard Model EFT and Dimension 6 operators Aneesh Manohar I will talk about recent work on the Standard Model Effective Theory, and the renormalization of the dimension Seminar
Oct 19 2015 - 02:00 Inflation and moduli backreaction in string-effective supergravities Clemens Wieck In the framework of N = 1 supergravity we study the effects of heavy scalar fields during inflation. Seminar
Oct 26 2015 - 01:00 Gravitational perturbations of the Higgs field Antonio Maroto The standard Higgs mechanism for electroweak symmetry breaking predicts, apart from the existence of a new scalar boson, the presence of a constant vacuum expectation value (VEV) of the Higgs Seminar
Oct 29 2015 - 15:00 Towards a realistic astrophysical interpretation of the Galactic center excess Marco Taoso A spherical-symmetric gamma-ray emission from the central region of the Galaxy has been recently identified in Fermi-LAT data, and initially associated to dark matter particle annihilations. Seminar
Nov 2 2015 - 15:00 High Energy Scattering in QCD: Putting Together All the Main Ingredients José Daniel Madrigal In this seminar we first provide a pedagogical introduction to the description of QCD dynamics in processes characterized by a very large center-of-mass energy, describing how radiative correcti Seminar
