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.
In this Thursday’s Journal Club we will have something a bit different and hear from two of our experimental colleagues. Yuta Takahashi (CMS) and Julian Garcia Pardinas (LHCb) will give us a status update and highlight some recent results.
Thursday 24th May at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.
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.
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).
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.
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.
In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Claudia Cornella will tell us all about her seminal work (with some lesser known collaborators) on `A three-site gauge model for flavor hierarchies and flavor anomalies’ (1712.01368).
Thursday 29th Mar at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.
This Thursday’s Journal Club will be cancelled due to the PhD defence of Dominik around the same time. Please feel free to come to the defence presentation at K08 starting at 15:45. After the defence there will be apero in K52 starting from 17:00.
See you on Thursday 22nd Mar at K08 and K52 in Y36.
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.
In this Thursday’s Journal Club, Xuan will start with a five to ten minute discussion of recent progress in N3LO Higgs production, based around 1802.00833.
Then for the main event, Kei Yamamoto (currently visiting from KMI, Nagoya University) will talk for 30 minutes on `Gluino-mediated electroweak penguin with flavor-violating trilinear couplings’ (1712.04959).
Thursday 8th Mar at 16:30 in K52 (the K floor coffee room) in building Y36.
