COLLOQUIUM - Simulating the proton

Friday, 27 November 2015 at 14:30 - - Seminar room

Speaker: Gunnar Bali (Regensburg U)

 Abstract: Almost all the known mass of the universe can be attributed to nuclei, i.e. bound states of nucleons (protons and neutrons). These are made up of quarks and gluons, that strongly interact according to the laws of quantum chromodynamics (QCD). QCD constitutes the theoretically cleanest and most solid component of the present standard model of elementary particles and their (strong and electroweak) interactions. This "model" leaves many questions unanswered and we may well learn about yet to be discovered fundamental theories from studying its cleanest part, i.e. QCD.

SEMINAR: Discovery through precision: perturbative QCD at the dawn of Run II

October 30 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Juan Rojo (Oxford University)

Abstract: The detailed exploration of the Higgs sector and the search for New Physics beyond the Standard Model are the two main goals of the recently started Run II of the Large Hadron Collider.

SEMINAR: Geometrical destabilization of heavy scalar fields during inflation

October 9 2015, 12:00h - Seminar room

Speaker: Sébastien Renaux-Petel (IAP Paris)

Abstract: We show the existence of a general mechanism by which heavy scalar fields can be destabilized during inflation. It relies on the fact that the effective mass of fluctuations orthogonal to the inflationary direction contains a contribution proportional to the curvature tensor of the field space metric, and that it can render the entropic fluctuations tachyonic.

SEMINAR: A goldstino at the end of the cascade

September 22 2015, 12:00h - Seminar room

Speaker: Daniele Musso (ICTP Trieste)

Abstract :Working within a five-dimensional consistent truncation of type IIB supergravity dimensionally reduced on T^{1,1}, we consider supersymmetry breaking solutions with the asymptotics of the supersymmetric KS background. There exists a two-parameter family of such solutions. Within this family, we show that those (and only those) solutions related to antiD-branes at the tip of the conifold correspond to dual field theory vacua where a goldstino mode is present and the supercurrent Ward identities hold. Our findings do not depend on the IR singularity of the dual backgrounds, nor on its resolution. As such, they provide independent evidence for the existence of superysymmetry breaking vacua in the conifold cascading gauge theory.

THESIS DEFENSE: Muon neutrino interactions and muon neutrino single charged current single pion production cross section on CH in the T2K near detector.

SEMINAR: Topological insulators from theory to experiments and viceversa

July 10 2015, 12:00pm -  Seminar room 

Speaker: Alessandro Braggio (Genova U)

Abstract : We will discuss how topological field theories have been used in order to effectively describe the properties of the topological materials[1,2].
