Speaker Event Type
Feb 10 2015 - 15:00 Higgs inflation as a mirage J. Barbón Models of Higgs inflation are constructed by a naive UV extrapolation of a very particular effective action. This procedure clashes with standard notions of effective field theory. Webinars
Feb 16 2015 - 09:00 Entangle This: Space, Time & Matter Quantum entanglement has become a central focus point at the crossroads of quantum information theory, condensed matter theory and quantum gravity. Workshop
Feb 18 2015 - 15:00 High Energy Scattering Processes in QCD Francesco Caporale In the strong interaction sector of the standard model (SM) we have already a quite convincing "picture" about the microscopic dynamics, through its theoretical formulation as a quantum field theor Dept. Seminar
Feb 19 2015 - 15:00 Testing Gravity with Cosmic Voids Nelson Padilla Dept. Seminar
Feb 20 2015 - 15:00 Flavoured Conspiracies and Conundrums Javier Virto Tests of the Standard Model with Flavor Physics push the scale of "generic" New Physics to 10^4 or even 10^5 TeV. Seminar
Feb 23 2015 - 15:00 The running coupling and B-physics from lattice QCD computations Patrick Fritzsch In this talk I will present two of my main research topics during the last years: a) the applicability of Heavy Quark Effective Theory to the b-quark sector of QCD on the lattice and b) our ongoing Seminar
Feb 24 2015 - 15:00 Robust collider limits on heavy-mediator dark matter Andrea Wulzer We explain how to consistently use Effective Field Theories (EFTs) to set universal bounds on heavy-mediator Dark Matter at colliders, without prejudice on the model underlying a given effective in Webinars
Feb 26 2015 - 15:00 Renormalization and stability in higher derivative models of quantum gravity Ilya Shapiro The main difficulty of perturbative quantum gravity (QG) in 4d is related to the conflict between renormalizability and unitarity. Seminar
Mar 2 2015 - 15:00 Let us talk about particle physics phenomenology Grigorios Chachamis The talk will cover two topics: (I) high-energy scattering physics and (II) the Loop-Tree Duality method for calculating cross sections. Seminar
Mar 6 2015 - 12:00 Quantum simulations Ignacio Cirac Many-body quantum systems are very hard to describe and simulate in general, since the dimension of the state space grows exponentially with the number of particles, volume, etc. Colloquium
