Speaker Event Type
Nov 12 2019 - 15:00 Strong first-order phase transitions: Vorticity, droplets and gravitational waves Daniel Cutting Although in the Standard Model the electroweak phase transition is a crossover, many well-motivated extensions can generate a first-order phase transition at the electroweak scale. Seminar
Nov 14 2019 - 15:00 Instability of the Luttinger liquids towards a fractal phase Huan-Qiang Zhou A novel universality class is found to characterize quantum phase transitions arising from instability of a Luttinger liquid to a  quantum state of matter with highly degenerate ground states Seminar
Nov 18 2019 - 15:00 Inconsistency of an inflationary sector coupled only (minimally) to gravity Daniel Figueroa The inflationary sector might very well have no direct couplings to other species, apart from inevitable gravitational interactions. Seminar
Nov 19 2019 - 15:00 Black holes with Sol horizon Federico Faedo Many are the ways to evade the topology theorems concerning black holes' horizon; in this Seminar
Nov 21 2019 - 15:00 Chiral Metric Hydrodynamics, Kelvin Circulation Theorem, and the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect Dam Thanh Son By extending the Poisson algebra of ideal hydrodynamics to include a two-index tensor field, we construct a new (2+1)-dimensional hydrodynamic theory that we call "chiral metric hydrodynamics." The Seminar
Nov 25 2019 - 15:00 Neutrino Oscillations in Dark Matter Eung Jin Chun We discuss neutrino oscillations in a medium of dark matter which generalizes the standard matter effect. Seminar
Nov 26 2019 - 15:00 Cosmology in the Machine Learning Era Francisco Villaescusa-Navarro The standard model of cosmology is a theoretical framework that accurately describes a large variety of cosmological observables, from the temperature anisotropies of the cosmic microwave backgroun Seminar
Nov 28 2019 - 15:00 The Dark Matter distribution of the Milky Way Fabio Iocco The distribution of Dark Matter in galaxies is one remarkable output ofstructure formation in a cosmological context, and an important input for Seminar
