A not so Elementary Higgs

Monday February 21st, 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Christophe Grojean  (CERN, Geneva & IPhT, Saclay)

Abstract:

Electroweak interactions need three Nambu--Goldstone bosons to provide a mass to the $W^\pm$ and the $Z$ gauge bosons but they also need an ultra-violet (UV) moderator or new physics to unitarize the gauge boson scattering amplitudes.

Non-Perturbative Thermal QCD: Gluon Condensates and AdS/QCD

Friday February 18th,  14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Eugenio Megias (Univ. of Heidelberg and IFT, UAM/CSIC, Madrid)

 

Abstract:

The theory of strong interactions is asymptotically free at high energies and temperatures, and this allows one to use perturbative methods to study its thermodynamic properties in this regime. Nevertheless close to the phase transition non-perturbative effects become very important, and usual perturbative approaches are not applicable.

GUT models from F-theory compactifications

Friday February 11th 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Timo Weigand   (University of Heidelberg)

Abstract:

F-theory represents a fascinating approach to non-perturbative string compactifications with 7-branes. More recently, I was appreciated that it is also a promising candidate for applications to phenomenology, combining some of the traditional strengths of both the heterotic string and intersecting branes.

The Complex Structure of Scattering Amplitudes

Friday January 28th 14:30 hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Pierpaolo Mastrolia (University of Salerno)

Abstract:

Unitarity and Analyticity of scattering amplitudes, when combined with Cauchy's Residue Theorem and its multivariate generalizations via Stokes' Theorem, turn into powerful techniques for evaluating radiative corrections.

The dilaton, a Higgs impersonator

Wednesday January 26th,  14:00 hs - Coffee room

Speaker : Alex Pomarol

 

 

 

Electroweak light from Dark Matter annihilation

Friday January 21st 14:30hs - Seminar room

Speaker: Alfredo Urbano (INFN & Univ. of Salento, Lecce, & IFAE, Barcelona)

Abstract:

The computation of the energy spectra of Standard Model particles originated from the annihilation/decay of dark matter particles is of primary importance in indirect searches of dark matter.
