This thesis explores the possibility that the Higgs particle may have a pseudo-Goldstone boson origin.

Sep 8 2017 - 12:00 to 13:00 Ana Isabel Salvador Counts-in-Cells with the Dark Energy Survey

We use the Counts-in-Cells (CiC) method to obtain the galaxy bias. CiC is a method based on dividing the sphere in cells of the same volume and counting the number of galaxies in each cell.
