LAPTh, an overviewLAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS (within the Institute of Physics, INP) and the Université de Savoie. It is located in AnnecyleVieux, 5km from the centre of Annecy and about 40km from CERN and Geneva. The activities of LAPTh are centred around three main areas of research:
NewsLectures on Amplitudes and SymbolsWith the advent of the LHC and the need for ever increasing accuracy, techniques in loops calculations have witnessed tremendous progress borrowing from highly complex mathematical structures and improving and adapting these structures. A very recent development concerns the use of symbols. Giorgios Papathanasiou will introduce some of these concepts starting from an elementary exposition of how these objects appear from the integrals one encounters in the evaluation of scattering amplitudes beyond treelevel. There will be 4 lectures: 1: Analytic structure of scattering amplitudes and Feynman integrals. Algebraic and transcendental functions. Classical polylogarithms. 2: Multiple polylogarithms (MPL): Integral and Series representations. Shuffle and quasishuffle algebras. 3: The symbol map. Properties. Integrability condition. Application: Resolving identities among MPLs and simplifying expressions. 4: (Optional) Advanced topics: The Hopf algebra of MPLs and the coproduct. Bootstrapping amplitudes. Expanding the symbol. Graspa 2015Undergraduate Summer School in Particle and Astroparticle Physics of AnnecyleVieux, July 1622 2015 The school aims at introducing Particle Physics and Astroparticle physics to 4th and advanced 3rd year physics students from anywhere in the world. The most recent research topics and results in these fields will be presented. The school consists of 4 days of lectures on LHC Physics, Neutrinos, Heavy Flavours, Astroparticle Physics and Gravitational Waves. Computational tools for these fields will also be introduced during a handson session. The students will be immersed in an international research atmosphere. They will be able to spend time and discuss at length with scientists working in the field. Courses will be in English. No background knowledge on the topics covered beyond a popular science level is assumed. A strong background in Quantum Mechanics is expected, however.
A maximum of 30 students will be admitted. PhysTeV Les Houches 2015In a few weeks the high energy physics team will be going to Les Houches. We will be overseeing the 9th session of the LH PhysTeV. This session will coincide with the first beams at the LHC which will soon be running at 13TeV. The highlight of the 2015 Les Houches Edition is to take full advantage of the data that has been collected at the LHC so far and prepare for the future runs. The Workshop will devote particular attention to:(i) Higgs physics, and how it shapes our view on the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking; (ii) related searches for New Physics and (iii) progress in new techniques for the calculations and simulation of Standard Model processes. These activities will be conducted in close connection with the development and improvements of related theory tools, in particular of MonteCarlo event generators. The Workshop proper runs over one year, including two meetings in Les Houches in the month of June, and exchanges and collaborations before and after the meetings. The meetings in Les Houches will consist of two sessions: Session I: 110 June 2015with emphasis on SMrelated issues Session II: 1019 June 2015 with emphasis on NewPhysics searches A course on Nonequilibrium ProcessesKirone Mallick from the Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) CEA Saclay is giving a set of lectures describing recent advances in systems far from equilibrium. After a review of equilibrium thermodynamics, the lectures will introduce the fascinating identities of Jarzinski and Crooks which quantify the transient violations of the second principle. This will be followed by the fluctuation theorem of GallavotiCohen. Here is the exciting programme 1. Review of statistical physics: Equilibrium versus Nonequilibrium. Dynamics, Detailed Balance and Timereversal. More Articles...
