Mini-school on 'theoretical methods in particle physics'

The programme consists of three advanced courses on theoretical methods in quantum field theory intended for MSc, PhD students, and postdocs: The c/a theorem and QFT in curved spacetime (Graham Shore, Swansea University) Bound states in gauge theory (Paul Hoyer, University of Helsinki) Higher spin theories (Dario Francia, Scuola ...

Higgs Physics at the LHC

ATLAS have now released preliminary results for most major Higgs decay channels using the full current dataset. So now is the perfect time to take stock of the implications of the results so far, and to evaluate the prospects for the future LHC run. This event will bring together the ...

Topological quantum matter

The role of topology in condensed matter physics was first recognised several decades ago in the context of the Integer Quantum Hall Effect and in aspects of superfluid helium research, but recent work on topological insulators has given the field a huge boost. As is appropriate for a Higgs Centre ...

Intergalactic Interactions: A Higgs Centre Workshop on the Intergalactic Medium

The cosmic web contains most of the mass of the Universe. It is revealed through hydrogen and helium absorption lines in the spectra of distant Quasi-Stellar Sources (QSOs), which act as background lightbulbs against which the absorption is measured. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together world-leading experts ...

Applying Quantum Mechanics to Alloy Design for Nuclear Reactor Steels

The n-FAME (nuclear Fe Alloys: Modelling and Experiments) workshop is organized in the framework of the Joint Programme on Nuclear Materials (JPNM) of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA). The latter is an alliance of leading public research organizations with the goal to contribute to achieving the SET-Plan objectives of ...

Strongly interacting dynamics beyond the Standard Model and the Higgs boson

Synopsis This meeting aims at bringing together experts from three different areas of Particle Physics with a common interest in strongly interacting dynamics beyond the standard model as a mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking. Traditionally, there is little cross-talk among those sectors: phenomenologists focus on experimental data and their implications ...

The Higgs Symposium

The Higgs Symposium, organized by the Higgs Centre, and co-sponsored by the IPPP, will take place at the University of Edinburgh, 9-11 January 2013. The Symposium will consist of 12 plenary lectures, focused on the discovery of the Higgs boson and its impact on physics. The scientific programme is now ...
