Thu 31st May 17:00 – Alberto Zucchetta (CMS)

NOTE: Change of time due to clash with a seminar.

In this Thursday’s Journal Club we will continue our experimental theme and hear from Alberto Zucchetta, who will tell us about boosted objects in CMS.

As a prelude, Alexander Karlberg will tell us about ‘Attempts at higher order MiNLO’.

Thursday 31st May at 17:00 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.

Please note that this will be the last Journal Club this semester, before it heads over to ETH next semester.

Thu 17th May 16:30 – Alex Ochirov

In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Alex Ochirov will tell us about the Massive Spinor Helicity formalism, based on 1709.04891.

As a prelude, Amedeo Primo will briefly talk about `Analytic Two-loop Higgs Amplitudes in Effective Field Theory and Maximal Transcendentality Principle’ (1804.04653).

Thursday 17th May at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.

Thu 10th May – Cancelled due to Ascension Day Holiday

This Thursday’s Journal Club (Thursday 10th May at 16:30) is cancelled due to Ascension Day (regional holiday). Unfortunately, we have to move this Journal Club by Francesco about Bootstrapping pentagon functions to the next semester.

The Journal Club next week (Thursday 17th May at 16:30) is as usual. We will have Alex presenting “Massive Spinor Helicity Amplitudes” based on 1709.04891. Before Alex’s presentation, we are also pleased to have Amedeo to briefly introduce (10 minutes) a recent paper on two-loop amplitudes (1804.04653).

Thu 3rd May 16:30 – Javier Mazzitelli

In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Javier Mazzitelli will tell us about the `Higgs boson pair production at NNLO with top quark mass effects’ (1803.02463).

Thursday 3rd May at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.

Before the main event, we will take a survey of the last week’s arxiv papers. If you see something of interest, please make a mental note and we can briefly discuss it.

Thu 26th Apr 16:30 – Sokratis Trifinopoulos

In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Sokratis Trifinopoulos will tell us about the `R_D^(∗) anomaly: A possible hint for natural supersymmetry with R-parity violation’ (1704.06659).

Thursday 26th Apr at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.

If anyone would like to give a short (~10 min) introduction on their own or others work, please just let us know.

Thu 19th Apr 16:30 – Armin Schweitzer

In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Xuan (UZH) will start with a ten minute discussion of the recent calculation of N3LO DIS (1803.09973).

Then, Armin (ETH) will talk for 50 minutes on `Elliptic polylogarithms and iterated integrals on elliptic curves (set up and application to the sunrise)’ (1712.07095).

Thursday 19th April at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.

Thu 15th Mar 16:30 – Silvia Ferrario Ravasio

In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Mike will start with a ten minute discussion of the recent measurement of the 21cm line and possible connections to dark matter (https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25792, https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25791).

Then, Silvia Ferrario Ravasio (visiting from Milan) will talk for 40 minutes on `A Theoretical Study of Top-Mass Measurements at the LHC Using NLO+PS Generators of Increasing Accuracy’ (1801.03944).

Thursday 15th Mar at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.
