Despite a wealth of expertise in the physics of nonequilbrium systems across SUPA institutions, this is an area where collaborative work between universities has not yet reached its full potential. The purpose of this workshop is to draw together theoretical physicists at Scottish institutions working on nonequilibrium systems as they manifest themselves in different branches of physics. These...

The Regge limit (or the limit of high-energy scattering) was recognised long ago as one where unique insight can be gained into scattering processes, owing to a simplified effective description through new degrees of freedom in two-dimensions. Recent advances in the study of scattering amplitudes led to a resurgence in this field, with significant progress in both maximally supersymmetric Yang...

The Flavour Lattice Averaging Group (FLAG) is reviewing results from lattice QCD for pion, kaon, D- and B-meson physics, quark masses and the strong coupling constant. Our aim is to make lattice QCD results easily accessible to the wider particle physics community. 

FLAG is a worldwide collaboration  and comprises experts in Lattice Field Theory, Chiral Perturbation Theory and Standard...

The third edition of the Higgs Centre School of Theoretical Physics will take place in May 29- June 2, 2017 at the Higgs Centre, James Clerk Maxwell Building, Edinburgh. The scientific programme starts at 9:00 on Monday, May 29th, and ends at 16:00 on Friday, June 2nd. The School comprises two in-depth lecture series, each involving five 2-hours lectures delivered on the blackboard, and a...
