## 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 Annecy-le-Vieux, 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: - phenomenology of particle physics,
- astroparticles and cosmology,
- mathematical physics in particular field and string theory and aspects of symmetry.
## News## Group Theory Lectures 2015
1) Elements of group theory and their importance in particle physics 2) Lie groups and Lie algebras 3) Classification of semi-simple Lie algebras 4) Representations of simple Lie algebras 5) Applications: spectroscopy of elementary particles, gauge theory, grand unification models 6) Extensions: superalgebras (for supersymmetry); quantum groups (for integrable systems); exceptional algebras and infinite dimensional algebras (for string theory) ## Jobs : PhD positions Enigmass 2015
Applicants should fill the application form available here. The results will be available by the beginning of May 2015. ## Anonio Pich Lectures : Naturalness and LHC Run 2As part of the ENIGMASS lecture series, Antonio Pich (University of Valencia, Spain) delivered a series of lectures on 12/13 November (2014) entitled " Probing Naturalness and Electroweak Symmetry Breaking at LHC run-2. Three lectures of 1h30 each were given, each lecture was followed by a debate and exchange with the audience. The target audience were staff physicists, post-docs and PhD students. For more details about the events see here. ## In Pour La Science, Supernovae and NeutrinosPasquale SERPICO contributed to the September 2014 Edition of Scientific American (Pour La Science) that covered a few aspects of the fascinating neutrinos. His contribution explained how the signal from a supernova can be used to infer the pattern of masses of these elusive particles. Neutrinos (and their antiparticles, antineutrinos) are copiously produced in numerous particle physics processes at different depths in the core of collapsing stars (Supernovae). They also come in three varieties (or flavours), as defined by the process by which they were created. ## More Articles... |
