LAPTh, an overview

LAPTh is a mixed research unit (UMR 5108) of the CNRS lapth-lapp(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.

PhysTeV 2019 Les Houches

lh2019 logoThis series of workshops, started 20 years ago, aims  to bring together theorists and experimentalists working on the phenomenology of  TeV colliders with an emphasis on the physics at the LHC. The highlight of the 2019 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. In the light of the LHC results, a reflection on the strategy in HEP and prospects from future facilities (at high and low energy) should be conducted. The Workshop will address issues such as how to best exploit these data as well as how to prepare for future LHC data, and what is most desirable in LHC upgrades. These activities will be conducted in close connection with the development and improvements of related theory tools, in particular of Monte-Carlo event generators. The role of machine learning and artificial intelligence will be part of these new development. The Workshop 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: 10-19 June 2019 with emphasis on SM-related issues.

Session II: 19-28 June 2019   with emphasis on New-Physics searches

La Nuit de l'Antimatière à Annecy

80ans agenda nuit-am-lapth
 
Le lundi 1er Avril 2019, à l’occasion de la Nuit de l'Antimatiere, le Laboratoire d’Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh) et le Laboratoire d’Annecy de Physique des Particules (LAPP) organisent une soirée à l'auditorium Vivargent à Annecy-le-Vieux.
Cette soirée festive aura pour but d'informer le grand public sur tous les aspects de l'antimatière, objet de nombreuses recherches et source de beaucoup d'applications, y compris dans la vie de tous les jours.
 

Johannes Henn, Director and Scientific Member of the Max Planck Institute for Physics

johannes-henn

Johannes Henn former Erasmus master student in physics at the Université de Savoie and former PhD student at LAPTh under the supervision of Prof. Emeri Sokatchev, has been appointed as a new Director at the Max Planck Institute for Physics. Johannes, 37 years old, is one of the world's leading experts in the research field of scattering amplitudes, which are used for the precise description of accelerator experiments. It is a very innovative research area, which establishes a close link between theoretical and experimental particle physics. Johannes has been running a research group for theoretical and mathematical physics at Mainz University since 2015.

   

Another blow for the dark matter interpretation of the Galactic Center Excess

caloref

For almost ten years, astronomers have been studying a mysterious diffuse radiation coming from the center of our Galaxy. Originally, it was thought that this radiation could originate from the elusive dark matter particles that many researchers are hoping to find. However, physicists from the University of Amsterdam and the Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique have now found further evidence that rapidly spinning neutron stars are a much more likely source for this radiation.

Le prix Daniel Guinier 2017 de la SFP a été décerné à Vivian Poulin, pour sa thèse intitulée "Signatures gravitationelles et électromagnétiques de particules massives en Cosmologie". Thèse dirigée par Pasquale D. Serpico (CNRS) et codirigée par Julien Lesgourgues (RWTH Aachen).

Vivian Poulin a préparé sa thèse au sein du Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique et de l'École doctorale de physique de Grenoble en cotutelle avec l'Université RWTH d'Aachen.

Ce prix Jeunes Chercheurs/euses de la Société Française de Physique, présenté par la Division Champs et Particules récompense un/e jeune ayant récemment soutenu sa thèse.

L'ensemble du laboratoire le félicite.


   

Lauréat du prix de Thèse 2018 de la COMUE UGA

 prix-these-uga-2018 vp

 

Vivian POULIN est l'un des 7 lauréats et lauréates du Prix de thèse 2018 de la Communauté Université Grenoble Alpes. Les travaux récompensés se distinguent par leur excellence et les progrès qu’ils représentent pour la connaissance. Vivian a effectué sa thèse en co-tutelle entre le Laboratoire d’Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh) et l'Université RWTH d’Aix-la-Chapelle sur les "signatures gravitationnelles et électromagnétiques de particules massives en Cosmologie". L'enjeu de son travail de thèse a été de développer des méthodes pour révéler la nature de la matière noire à travers son influence sur les observables cosmologiques existantes. Le prix sera décerné mardi 26 juin 2018 à Saint-Martin-d'Hères.

Félicitations!

Post-doc Position Fall 2018

logo agc rc2015

 In the framework of the French Excellence Initiative, ENIGMASS, a consortium of the four laboratories (LAPP, LAPTh, LPSC and LSM), we are seeking candidates for a post-doctoral position at LAPTh Annecy. Priority will be given to applicants with expertise on precision calculations (QCD and electroweak higher order corrections) with applications to LHC physic. Applications from candidates working on LHC Phenomenology in a broader sense will also be considered. A good knowledge or familiarity with HEP Monte-Carlo generators, tools or techniques will be a bonus.

The successful candidate will join a team of theorists at LAPTh, in particular the permanent members of LAPTh (G. Bélanger, F. Boudjema, C. Delaunay, D. Guadagnoli, J.P. Guillet, B. Herrmann, E. Pilon and E. Re). Collaboration with theorists at LPSC Grenoble and with experimentalists in ATLAS (LAPP Annecy and LPSC Grenoble) is foreseen. The fellowship is awarded for a period of two years. Applications are to be made here 

Applications will be reviewed starting Dec. 11 2017. It is therefore highly advisable that the recommendation letters have reached by then. Submissions will remain open until the position is filled.
