Abstract:

The Standard Model of particle physics cannot be the final word on how to understand fundamental particles theoretically. The missing pieces, intriguing patterns and extreme hierarchies of the Standard Model demand explanations, but any new theory must tread a tightrope of increasingly precise measurements.

Abstract

The Callan Rubakov Effect describes the interaction between (massless) fermions and a smooth monopole in 4d gauge theory. In this scenario, the fermions can probe the UV physics inside the monopole core which leads to interesting effects such as proton decay in GUT models. However, the monopole-fermion scattering appears to lead to out-states that are not in the perturbative Hilbert space. In this talk, we will review this issue and propose a new physical mechanism that resolves this long-standing confusion.

What is the mass of the neutrino? Why is there an abundance of matter over antimatter in our universe? And what is dark matter? Strangely enough, answers might very well lie, yet undiscovered, in impossibly rare nuclear decays, infinitely subtle wobblings of nuclei embedded in radioactive molecules, or the faintest recoils of nuclei colliding with dark matter.

Understanding quantum chaos in conformal field theories is extremely important. Chaotic dynamics can explain why so many systems can be studied with statistical mechanics, and why systems reach ``typical’’ states so quickly. Outside of the simplest, highly symmetric systems, all systems are expected to be described by chaotic dynamics; whether and how these dynamics can appear in theories with conformal symmetry is thus essential to further our understanding of most CFTs.

Abstract:

JWST is now delivering ultra-precise spectra of exoplanet atmospheres over a significantly wider wavelength range than afforded by previous observations. This exceptional improvement in data quality has opened new areas of atmospheric science to observational study that were previously out of reach.

Abstract

The common statement that any consistent quantum gravity theory contains dynamical objects with all possible charges suggests that there are still a number of hitherto-unidentified branes in string theory. In this talk I will discuss four of these new branes, focusing on heterotic string theories. The focus of the discussion will be on the relationship between these branes and the lower-dimensional vacua obtained by closed string tachyon condensation in the ten-dimensional, non-supersymmetric heterotic string theories.
