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
Nov 5 2020 - 16:00 Probing new physics at the precision frontier Yotam Soreq In this talk we discuss different methods to probe new light physics at the precision frontier. Seminar
Nov 12 2020 - 16:00 Primordial black holes from metric preheating: mass fraction in the excursion-set approach Pierre Auclair After inflation, the oscillations of the inflaton at the bottom of its potential source a parametric instability in the equation of motion of scalar perturbations. Seminar
Nov 16 2020 - 16:00 Indirect search for New Physics: precision measurements and EFT Pier Paolo Giardino The search for New Physics at colliders can take many forms, and whiledirect searches for new particles are definitely a necessity, a strong Seminar
Dec 3 2020 - 16:00 Charting the Vacuum Landscape in SUSY benchmark scenarios W.G. Hollik We review vacuum stability criteria in supersymmetric models anddescribe a fast and efficient method to study these constraints. Explicitly Seminar
Dec 10 2020 - 16:00 Scalar taus at the LHC: How we will find them Victor Martin-Lozano After almost 10 years of performance at different energies the LHC has provided a large amount of data. Despite the fact of finding a SM-like Higgs boson, there is no sign of new Physics yet. Seminar
Jan 18 2021 - 16:00 New Directions for Light Dark Matter Yonit Hochberg The exploration of dark matter beyond the WIMP is of vital importance Seminar
