Paris, May 29, 1832. In the middle of the night, on the eve of a duel, Évariste Galois, a little older than twenty, handles for the last time a manuscript full of equations and theorems he had written four years earlier. "I have no time! I do not have time!" he frantically wrote in the margins.

A documentary from an original idea and script by Giuseppe Mussardo. There will be...

Venue:

Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics

Key Speakers:

The search for and study of exotic hadrons (tetra, penta, hexaquarks etc) has become a hot topic over recent years as a wealth of new data has arrived from current particle and nuclear physics experiments. Many new states have been observed and their properties measured, with different degrees of precision. Often similar states and search methods are discussed separately in the particle and...

Organisers:
Vittorio del Duca (ETH Zurich and INFN), Lorenzo Magnea (Turin U. and INFN), Einan Gardi (Edinburgh)
Venue:

Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics, JCMB, Edinburgh

Key Speakers:

Precise theoretical predictions for LHC observables are a crucial pre-requisite for the discovery of new physics. Such predictions require high-order perturbative calculations in the Standard Model, most notably in QCD. A key step in these calculations is the cancellation of infrared divergences, which arise from exchanges of virtual partons and from the integration over undetected real...
