LHC tests of the Tevatron t tbar asymmetry

Wednesday July 6, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: J.A. Aguilar-Saavedra  (Universidad de Granada)


Abstract:

The forward-backward asymmetry measured by CDF may be a hint of physics beyond the Standard Model. Models accommodating this asymmetry will undergo stringent tests from t tbar production at LHC, especially the measurement of the high-mass tail and the charge asymmetry.

JULY 2011 - LHC already reaches its collisions goals for 2011

In the first half of 2011 LHC has delivered more than one fb-1 (inverse femtobarn) of integrated luminosity to the experiments. One inverse femtobarn corresponds to approximately 70 million million collisions. In fact, LHC crossed the one inverse femtobarn goal set in 2010 for the whole 2011 run on June 16th, just three months since the beginning of this year's run. This shows the excellent performance of the accelerator and brings nearer the moment when new physics may show up. Read more on the CERN press release.

The Higgs: status and perspectives

Friday July 1st, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Abdelhak Djouadi (Universite de Paris Sud, Orsay)

Abstract:

I will summarize the status of the Higgs boson in the Standard Model and its supersymmetric extension with a focus on Higgs production at hadron colliders and the associated theoretical uncertainties.

The Little-Parks Effect and Quantum Hair on Holographic Superconductors

Non-Abelian Semi-Local Vortices, from (S)QCD to Condensed Matter

Friday June 17, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Walter Vinci (University of Minnesota)

Abstract:

I will present some of my contributions to the study of BPS string-like solutions in supersymmetric gauge theories with extended supersymmetry. In particular, I will review the concepts of non- Abelian and semi-local vortices.

JUNE 2011 - Electron neutrino appearance at T2K

The T2K experiment, whose primary purpose is to study neutrino interactions at a large distance from their source, has detected 6 electron neutrino candidate events based on the data collected before March 11, 2011. For the first time, it was possible to observe an indication that muon neutrinos are able to transform into electron neutrinos over a distance of 295 km through the quantum mechanical phenomena of neutrino flavor oscillations.

Tsukuba, February 24, 2010. The T2K experiment, whose primary purpose is to study neutrino interactions at a large distance from their source, has detected 6 electron neutrino candidate events based on the data collected before March 11, 2011. For the first time, it was possible to observe an indication that muon neutrinos are able to transform into electron neutrinos over a distance of 295 km through the quantum mechanical phenomena of neutrino flavor oscillations.

Duality Violations in tau decays

Wednesday May 15th,  14:00hs - Coffee roomn


Speaker : Diogo Boito (IFAE)


 

A split SM embedding in SO(10), minimal type-II seesaw, and tree-level gauge mediation

Friday June 10, 14:hs - Seminar room

Speaker:  Andrea Romanino (SISSA, Trieste)

Abstract:

I will discuss the consequences of a non-standard embedding of the SM fermions in a supersymmetric SO(10) theory, in which the SM fermions are embedded in two different SO(10) representations.

Technically natural dark energy from Lorentz breaking

Monday June 6, 14:30hs -  Seminar room

Speaker: Serguey Sibiryakov (INR, Moscow)

Abstract:

I will present a model of dark energy with a technically natural small contribution to cosmic acceleration, i.e. this contribution does not receive corrections from other scales in the theory.
