Feb 22 2016 - 15:00 Using dark energy to suppress power at small scales Savvas Nesseris The latest Planck results reconfirm the existence of a slight but chronic tension between the best-fit Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) and low-redshift observables: power seems to be consistently Seminar
Feb 25 2016 - 15:00 Aspects of dynamical EWSB with a Higgs: from the EFT to concrete models Oscar Cata Dynamical EWSB, although initially conceived for Higgsless models, can easily accommodate a naturally light scalar via different dynamical mechanisms. Seminar
Feb 29 2016 - 15:00 Charged hadrons in a finite box Agostino Patella In order to calculate QED corrections to hadronic physical quantities by means of lattice simulations, a coherent description of electrically-charged states in finite volume is needed. Seminar
Mar 7 2016 - 15:00 Theory status of (g-2)_mu and experimental prospects Fred Jegerlehner he anomalous magnetic moment of the muon provides stringent tests for the electroweak Standard Model (SM) and is an excellent monitor for new physics. Seminar
Mar 10 2016 - 15:00 Relaxion and natural inflation with multiple axions Kiwoon Choi Both natural inflation scenario and the relaxion solution to the weak scalehierarchy problem involve an axion-like field which is required to have Seminar
Mar 14 2016 - 15:00 From atomic nuclei to neutrinos and dark matter Javier Menéndez First I will present recent progress in theoretical calculations for the structure of atomic nuclei based on chiral effective field theory (EFT), an effective theory of QCD valid at low energies. Seminar
Mar 15 2016 - 15:00 Recent developments in Monte Carlo even generators Stefan Gieseke We discuss the latest advances in the construction of event generators used at the Large Hadron Collider physics program. Seminar
Mar 17 2016 - 11:00 Underlying Event and Multiple Parton Interactions Stefan Gieseke The status of the investigations of the underlying event contributions to hadronic observables at high energies will be discussed in detail. Seminar
