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 ...
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 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 ...

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 ...
The study of scattering amplitudes has developped substantially over the past
few years, with applications ranging from precision calculations for the LHC
through new approaches to gauge theories and gravity and ending with pure
mathematics. The annual meeting Amplitudes
2017 workshop will be
hosted by the Higgs Centre between 10-14 ...

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 ...
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
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 ...
Higgs-Maxwell workshops are a series of annual one-day
meetings to discuss the
current topics in theoretical and experimental particle physics and the
prospects for future discoveries. The meeting is organised by the Universities
of Durham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Lancaster. This year's meeting, taking place
on February 8th at the ...

New Directions in Theoretical Physics is a series of meetings aimed to
provide a multidisciplinary setting for theoretical physicists to exchange
ideas with colleagues and highlight new approaches to challenges in
The January 2017 meeting will cover a broad range of topics including active
matter, particle physics beyond ...
