SEMINAR: Summary of CMS results in the first 3 LHC years

Monday March 3, 12:00pm -  Seminar room 

Speaker: David d'Enterria (CERN)

Abstract: A selection of the most significant results in QCD, electroweak, flavour, Higgs, and Beyond Standard Model physics collected during the first three years of operation of the CMS experiment at the CERN LHC will be presented.

THESIS DEFENSE:  Probing new physics at the LHC: searches for heavy top-like quarks with the ATLAS experiment

February 28 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar Room 

Thesis Defender: Antonella Succurro



THESIS DEFENSE: The Yang-Mills Vacuum Wave Functional in 2+1 Dimensions

February 25 2014, 11:00am - IFAE Seminar Room

COLLOQUIUM: The role of the Higgs in baryogenesis theories

Monday February 24 2014, 12:00 - Seminar room

Speaker: Geraldine Servant (IFAE - ICREA)

Abstract: The Standard Model fails at explaining the matter antimatter asymmetry of the universe encoded in the baryon to photon ratio $n_b/n_{\gamma} \sim 10^{-10}$.

Imprints of the Standard Model in the Sky

Friday February 21 2014, 2:30pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Daniel Figueroa (U de Geneve)

Abstract: The existence of the Standard Model (SM) Higgs implies that a gravitational wave (GW) background is generated by the decay products of the Higgs, soon after the end of inflation.

SEMINAR: Dark Matter and the Gravitational Sector

Fridaay February 14 2014, 2:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Jose Cembranos (U Complutense de Madrid )

Abstract: In general, the ultraviolet completion of Einstein gravity requires the introduction of new degrees of freedom. We analyze the phenomenology of these new particles as dark matter candidates.

SEMINAR: Higgs couplings and electroweak observables: a comparison of precision tests

Monday February 10 2014, 12:00hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Andrea Tesi (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa)

Abstract : Is the weak scale natural? This ever pending question makes the search for new particle production a highly motivated primary goal of the next LHC phase.

COLLOQUIUM: QCD made easy: the quest for accuracy

Monday February 3 2014, 12:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Stefano Frixione (CERN & EPFL Lausanne)

Abstract: An important ingredient in a successful physics programme at the LHC is the systematic use of precise computations, which help reduce the theoretical bias on experimental analyses, thanks to the possibility of giving reliable predictions with a minimal amount of tuning on real data.

SEMINAR: Signatures of the inert doublet dark matter model

Friday January 24 2014, 2:30pm

Speaker: Alejandro Ibarra (Munich Tech. U)

Abstract : The inert doublet model is a minimal extension of the Standard Model which accounts for the dark matter of the Universe and which consists in introducing one extra scalar field, odd under an unbroken Z2 symmetry, with identical gauge quantum number as the Standard Model Higgs.

SEMINAR: Schwinger effect in de Sitter space 

Friday January 17 2014, 2:00pm - Seminar room

Speaker: Jaume Garriga (Universitat de Barcelona)

Abstract : I will discuss the Schwinger process in 1+1 dimensional de Sitter space, and will derive a formula for the conductivity of vacuum.
