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

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.

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: Axions in SUSY

December 12 2014, 2:30pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Lorenzo Ubaldi (Bonn U)

Abstract : The axion represents a plausible solution to the strong CP problem, while supersymmetry remains a leading candidate in addressing the hierarchy problem of the Standard Model. Marrying the axion with supersymmetry results in a very rich and interesting phenomenology.

SEMINAR: On Flavour and Naturalness of Composite Higgs Models

December 11 2014, 2:30pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Alexei Matsedonskyi (SNS Pisa)

Abstract : In this talk I present an analysis of flavour and EWPT constraints imposed on Composite Higgs models with a flavour-symmetric strong sector.

SEMINAR: Standard Model vacuum stability with a 125 GeV Higgs

December 5 2014, 2:30pm -  Seminar room

Speaker: Stefano Di Vita (MPI Munich)

Abstract : The observation at the LHC of a scalar particle compatible with the Standard Model (SM) Higgs boson could represent the ultimate success of the SM description of particle interactions.

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.
