Exotic hadron spectroscopy 2017

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 ...

Galois - Story of a Revolutionary Mathematician

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 ...

Stars, Supernovae and Nucleosynthesis IV

Stars are the “Cauldrons in our cosmos“ being responsible for creating all of the chemical elements from carbon onwards. The elemental abundances we observe today in our solar system are a result of many different nucleosynthesis processes taking place in various kinds of stars and phases of stellar evolution, over ...

Amplitudes

During the last few years the analytic study of scattering amplitudes has flourished due to a vivid interaction between high-energy physics and mathematics. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together leading experts working on novel methods for scattering amplitudes in perturbative gauge theory, gravity theories and string theory ...

Flavour Lattice Averaging Group meeting

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 ...

Iterated integrals and the Regge limit

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 ...

Non-Equilibrium Collective Dynamics

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 ...
