Welcome

The Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics was established by the University of Edinburgh to seek answers to fundamental questions about the universe. We do this by creating opportunities for researchers and students from around the world to come together to formulate new theoretical concepts, taking us beyond the limitations of current paradigms.

Career Talk with Niclas Westerberg

Nic’s connection to the Higgs Centre is through an MSc in Theoretical Physics that he completed in 2015, after which he continued to do a PhD with the Scottish Centre for Doctoral Training in Condensed Matter Physics. Under the supervision of Patrik Öhberg, and based at Heriot-Watt University, he ...

Toward data-driven reduced-order modeling and control of flows with complex chaotic dynamicsMichael D. GRAHAM

Many fluid flows are characterized by chaotic dynamics, a large number of degrees of freedom, and multiscale structure in space and time. We build on the idea that many dynamical systems that are nominally described by a state variable of very high or infinite dimension -- such as the Navier-Stokes equations ...

Modeling large-scale structure in the golden age of cosmological surveysMartin WHITE

The Universe we observe exhibits order on a wide range of scales, and the study of this large-scale structure provides one of our premier laboratories for fundamental physics, cosmology and astrophysics. I will present recent advances in analytic models of this large scale structure applicable to the numerous observational programs ...

QED in Weak Decays

This workshop aims to bring together both experimental and theoretical experts working on QED corrections specifically to weak decays. The goal of this workshop is twofold. First, theorists working with methods of scalar QED, light-cone sum rules, chiral perturbation theory, SCET and lattice methods all have different ways of tackling ...
