## SEMINAR: Phenomenological approaches of inflation and their equivalence

January 30 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Lotfi Boubekeur (Valencia U & IFIC)

Abstract :   Inflation is the dominant paradigm to explain the initial conditions of our universe, yet this attractive paradigm is still lacking robust observational confirmation.

## COLLOQUIUM:  Cien años de gravedad / One hundred years of nigritude

February 2nd 2015, 12:00PM - Seminar room

Speaker:  Roberto Emparan (U Barcelona & ICREA)

Abstract: In November 1915 Einstein finally arrived at the definitive formulation of General Relativity. Before the end of that same year, Schwarzschild found its most important solution.

## SEMINAR: Physical parameters of the electroweak crossover

January 23 2015, 2:30pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Michela D'Onofrio (Helsinski U)

Abstract :  We use large-scale lattice simulations to compute the rate of baryon number violating processes (the sphaleron rate), the Higgs field expectation value, and the critical temperature in the Standard Model across the electroweak phase transition temperature.

## SEMINAR: Dark Nuclear Physics

January 9 2015, 2:30pm

Speaker: Matthew Mccullough (CERN)

Abstract : I will discuss the possibility of nuclear physics in the dark sector with a focus on the types of scenarios in which dark nuclear physics could arise and how this might influence dark sector cosmology and phenomenology

## DECEMBER 2014: Communication and Public Relations Manager

Job Reference: IFAE-2015-SO-01
Publication date: 18-December-2014
Closing date: 15-February-2015

The Institut de Física d'Altes Energies (IFAE, see www.ifae.es), a research centre awarded with the Severo Ochoa recognition for excellence, is opening a new position for a highly qualified professional to manage its communication policy.

## SEMINAR: New ways to search for right-handed current in $B\to \rho \ell \bar\nu$ decay

December 19 2014, 2:30pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Sascha Turczyk (U Mainz)

Abstract : An interesting possibility to ease the tension between various determinations of $|V_{ub}|$ is to allow a small right-handed contribution to the standard model weak current.  The present bounds on such a contribution are fairly weak.

## SEMINAR: Dark matter and flavor

Decemeber 18 2014, 2:30pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Fady Bishara (Cincinnati U and Fermilab)

Abstract : We show that flavor symmetries can lead to dark matter stability without the need to impose additional discrete or continuous symmetries specifically for this purpose. We explore two scenarios.

## DECEMBER 2014 - 2014 Nishina Memorial Prize to T2K

Takashi Kobayashi (KEK) and Tsuyoshi Nakaya (Kyoto University) from the T2K Collaboration have been awarded the 2014 Nishina Memorial Prize for their contributions to the "Observation of electron neutrino appearance in a muon neutrino beam".
