In the first of a series of events in collaboration with the National Museum of Scotland, we are delighted to host Prof. Frank Close as he describes his fascinating new biography of Bruno Maximovich Pontecorvo. When Bruno Pontecorvo fled to the USSR at the height of the Cold War in ...

A main objective of the LHC is the search for and the possible discovery of
new physics beyond the Standard Model. An essential aspect is the quantitative
interpretation, i.e. fits, of the data in terms of existing, well-motivated
new physics models. These can be complete models, such as the ...
The aim of the workshop is to bring together the nuclear and particle physics
communities to discuss experimental searches for exotic hadronic resonances
(tetra, penta, hexaquarks etc); the latest data analysis methods used; the
theoretical interpretation of these states and the potential for future
searches at current experimental facilities (CERN ...
is the integrated supercomputing facility for theoretical modelling and HPC-based research in particle physics, nuclear physics, astronomy and cosmology.
This September, The University of Edinburgh is hosting the sixth Annual DiRAC Science Day. Researchers will present scientific results achieved with this facility, and technical support teams will meet with ...
Numerical simulations of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) are well established and
a state-of-the-art method to obtain nonperturbative predictions from the
Standard Model (SM) of elementary particle physics. These predictions are
crucial to complement the experimental research program at the LHC or at the
future Belle II experiment. In order to fully ...
Following the discovery of the Higgs boson in July 2012 at CERN, the most
urgent questions in theoretical particle physics concern the nature of the
Higgs particle and physics beyond the standard model related to the Higgs
mechanism. Experimental results for the Run 2 of the LHC will challenge our ...
The second edition of the Higgs Centre School of Theoretical Physics will take
place in May 23-27, 2016 at the Higgs Centre, James Clerk Maxwell Building,
Edinburgh. The scientific programme starts at 9:00 on Monday, May 23th, and
ends at 18:00 on Friday, May 27th. The School comprises ...
Recently, new correspondences have been discovered between Yang-Mills theory
and gravity. An exciting example is the BCJ double copy, which has led to
intense global research activity. This meeting will bring together experts in
both QCD and gravity (including supersymmetric extensions), and focus on the
development of common methodologies for ...
The quest for new physics requires predicting scattering processes at the
Large Hadron Collider with the highest achievable precision. This in turn
means describing ubiquitous QCD radiation. Scattering cross sections are
calculated as an expansion in the strong coupling constant. In the limit in
which the energy of the QCD ...
Two major themes currently lie at the frontier of research in condensed matter
theory. One is the idea articulated by Nobel Laureate Phillip Anderson that
“More is Different”, in other words, that the consequence of interactions at
one scale leads to emergent principles that apply to matter at a larger ...
