Matteo Martinelli Upcoming Large Scale Structure surveys will provide information on the distribution of matter in the Universe which, united with Cosmic Microwave Background data from Planck, has the potential to s Seminar
Mar 5 2020 - 15:00 The case for new physics beyond the current cosmology Eoin O' Colgain Persistent discrepancies in cosmological parameters may be pointing to a break down Seminar
Oct 22 2020 - 16:00 Gradient effects on false vacuum decay in gauge theory Juan S. Cruz We study false vacuum decay for a gauged complex scalar field in a polynomial potential with nearly degenerate minima. Seminar
Oct 26 2020 - 16:00 Aharonov-Bohm in the Sky : A CMB Millikan Experiment with Cosmic Axiverse Strings Anson Hook We show that photons moving around an axion string coupled to photons undergo an Aharonov-Bohm effect.  As a result,  Seminar
