SEMINAR - Gamma ray astronomy and the origin of galactic cosmic rays

Monday November 5th 2012, 12 pm- Seminar room

Speaker: S. Gabici (Laboratoire APC - CNRS/Université Paris 7)

Abstract: He will give a comprehensive introduction for non-experts, so that it can reach a wider audience.


MAM SEMINAR - The vacuum wave functional for Yang-Mills theory in 3 dimensions

Wednesday November 7th 2012, 2 pm - Coffee room

Speaker: Sebastian Krug

Abstract: I will explain the vacuum wave functional, and present and compare three different methods to obtain the VWF for Yang-Mills theory in 3 dimensions. I will conclude showing how to use it to calculate physical quantities, in particular the static potential.

OCTOBER 2012 - The Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) has been awarded with a “Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence” distinction

In recognition for its outstanding role in experimental particle physics at international level, the nstitut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE) has been awarded with a “Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence” distinction.

SEMINAR - Hitting a Natural Higgs in SUSY

Wednesday October 31st 2012, 2:30 pm - Downstairs meeting room

Speaker: Chris Wymant (University of Durham)

Abstract: Supersymmetric theories solve the hierarchy problem chiefly by virtue of a partner for the top quark, the stop, which contributes to the Higgs mass correction an equal amount with the opposite sign.

OCTOBER 2012 - Neutrino paper wins 'La Recherche' prize

The T2K electron neutrino paper has been recognized as the best scientific result of the year by the French journal 'La Recherche'.

THESIS DEFENSE - Search for gamma-ray emission from supernova remnants with the Fermi/LAT and MAGIC telescopes

Wednesday October 31st 2012, 12 pm - Seminar room

Thesis defender: Ignasi Reichardt

SEMINAR - Holography of the Weyl semi-metals

Friday October 26th 2012,  14:30 pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Umut Gursoy (CERN)

Abstract: Weyl semi-metals can be thought of higher dimensional analogs of Graphene, where the single-fermion excitations exhibit Weyl-like dispersion instead of Dirac.
