SEMINAR: Understanding the Large Scale Structure of the Universe through Symmetries

November 28 2014, 2:30pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Toni Riotto (Geneva U)

Abstract : Getting inspiration from what is usually done in high energy physics, we will discuss what kind of knowledge we may get on the large scale structure of the universe from the symmetries of the dark matter dynamics.

SEMINAR: Atomic dark matter

November 25 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Kalliopi Petraki (NIKHEF Amsterdam)

Abstract : Observations of the galactic and subgalactic structure of our universe can be explained better if dark matter possesses sizeable self-interactions, rather than if it is collisionless.

SEMINAR: A Higgs or the Higgs ? A detailed look at the anomalous Higgs couplings

November 21 2014, 2:30pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Shankha Banerjee (HRI Allahabad India)

Abstract : Recent results from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) has proved the existence of the long-awaited Higgs boson in the Standard Model (SM).

CERN makes public first data of LHC experiments

See press release at http://home.web.cern.ch/about/updates/2014/11/cern-makes-public-first-data-lhc-experiments.

 

Geneva 20 November 2014. CERN launched today its Open Data Portal where data from real collision events, produced by the LHC experiments will for the first time be made openly available to all. It is expected that these data will be of high value for the research community, and also be used for education purposes.

COLLOQUIUM: TH status after ICHEP2014: Searching for New Physics at the next LHC run

November 24 2014 - Seminar room

Speaker:Toni Pich (IFIC & U Valencia)

Abstract: The LHC data has brought a new perspective on our understanding of particle physics.

COLLOQUIUM: That's the story": Prof. Roy Glauber remembers the making of the atomic bomb

December 15 2014 - Seminar room

Speaker: José Ignacio Latorre (Universitat de Barcelona), Maria Teresa Soto-Sanfiel (UAB)

Abstract: Nobel laureate Prof. Roy J. Glauber is the last alive scientist from the Theory Division of the Manhattan Project at Los Alamos.

SEMINAR: Models with small cosmological constant at finite temperature

November 11 2014, 2:30pm - Seminar room 

Speaker: Bithika Jain (Syracuse U)

Abstract : In 5D holographic realizations of spontaneously broken approximate conformal invariance, a naturally light dilaton can be obtained via the introduction of the small dependence of the 5D scalar potential on the field itself.

SEMINAR: Massive gravity from spontaneous symmetry breaking

November 14 2014, 2:30pm -  Seminar room 

Speaker: Diego Blas (CERN)

Abstract : In this talk I'll present the first proposal to give mass to the gravitons from a spontaneous symmetry breaking mechanism. In contrast to massive gauge bosons, both the broken and unbroken phases are not Lorentz invariant. 

NOVEMBER 2014 - Black Hole Gamma-Ray Lightning

 

Black Hole Gamma-Ray Lightning

(Versió en català al final)

(Versión en español al final)

The MAGIC telescopes at La Palma have recorded the fastest gamma-ray flares seen to date, produced in the vicinity of a super-massive black hole. The scientists explain this phenomenon by a mechanism similar to that producing lightning in a storm. This result, with an important Spanish contribution, is published today in Science.
