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.

Opening of 1 predoctoral position for an outstanding young graduate interested in working towards a PhD thesis at IFAE

The "Institut de Física d'Altes Energies" (IFAE) in Barcelona announces the opening of one predoctoral position for an outstanding young graduate interested in working towards a PhD thesis at IFAE. This position will be funded by the Agència de Gestió d'Ajuts Universitaris i de Recerca (AGAUR) under the FI Fellowship Program (FI fellowship).
