Speaker Event Type
Apr 15 2024 - 15:00 Pros and cons of EFTs for new physics Duarte Fontes Physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM) can be described in a consistent and general way through an Effective Field Theory (EFT). Seminar
Apr 18 2024 - 15:00 Higgs criticality in and beyond the Standard Model Thomas Steingasser Both parameters in the Higgs potential appear fine-tuned, relating to the hierarchy problem and the metastability of the electroweak vacuum. Seminar
Apr 22 2024 - 15:00 Quantum complexity in the Krylov basis Pawel Caputa I will talk about the notion of Krylov complexity, its various recent applications and connections to quantum many-body systems and QCD. Seminar
Apr 25 2024 - 15:00 Vector Boson Scattering: Status and Prospects for the Large Hadron Collider and Beyond Richard Ruiz The scattering of electroweak bosons at TeV-scale super colliders is a powerful mechanism that prob Seminar
Apr 29 2024 - 15:00 Phenomenological consequences of the modern S-matrix Bootstrap programme Joan Elias Miró In this talk I will cover some of the recent successes of the S-matrix bootstrap. I will show how simple ideas of causality and unitarity lead to non-trivial bound on the space of EFTs. Seminar
May 6 2024 - 15:00 Black Hole Binary Dynamics and Radiation from Classical and Quantum Gravitational Scattering Thibault Damour Gravitational wave signals from coalescing binary black holes are detected, and analyzed, by using large banks of template waveforms. The construction of these templates makes an essential use of t Seminar
May 9 2024 - 15:00 Distinguishing models with $\mu\to e$ observables Marco Ardu Neutrino masses and oscillations demonstrate that lepton flavour violation is new physics that must exist, but it is yet to be observed in processes involving char Seminar
May 16 2024 - 15:00 Probing new physics with Galactic (keV-MeV) gamma-ray emission Pedro de la Torre Luque Measurements of the 511 keV emission reveal the presence of a steady injection of positrons that is very concentrated around the Galactic bulge, and whose origin remains unknown. Seminar
