DESCRIPTION:Title:\n\nSome developments on the Weak Gravity Conjecture.\n\
nAbstract: The Weak Gravity Conjecture has been proposed a few years ago
as part of the Swampland program. It can be formulated as the statement th
at the gravity has to be the weakest force in an Effective Field Theory. F
ormalized first for one single abelian gauge field\, it has been extended
in recent years to more complex situations\, with several gauge fields and
massless scalars. I will review some of this development\, and present a\
nphenomenological application of them in the case of a tiny mixing. Then\,
I\nwill look at possibility of extensions of such a conjecture in the cas
e of\nscalar potentials\n\nZoom link: IPPP Seminars (Thursday at 2 pm U

DESCRIPTION:Title:\n\nFrom scattering amplitudes to Newton’s potential a
nd beyond \n\nAbstract: I will review the computation of the gravitationa
l potential from scattering amplitudes and unitarity. I will also explain
how to compute directly observable quantities such as the deflection angle
for light or for gravitons passing by a heavy mass (such as a black hole)
. After this introduction\, I will show how to extend our considerations t
o incorporate higher-derivative corrections to the Einstein-Hilbert theory
\, in the framework of effective field theories. Finally I will discuss th
e prospects of extending systematically such computations to higher loops
using a new\, gauge-invariant version of the color-kinematics BCJ duality
formulated directly in a heavy-mass effective theory (which will also be b
riefly discussed).\n\nZoom link: IPPP Seminars (Thursday at 2 pm UK tim

DESCRIPTION:Title: \n\nExploring the $U(1)_{L_\\mu - L_\\tau}$ Solution
to the Muon's Anomalous Magnetic Moment Using Future Experimental Probes\n
\nAbstract: \n\nThe first results from the Muon $g-2$ experiment at Fermi
lab have strengthened hints of exciting new physics in the leptonic sector
. Among the different models that can account for this anomaly\, the addit
ion of a $U(1)_{L_\\mu - L_\\tau}$ gauge symmetry to the SM is a particul
arly elegant explanation\, introducing a so-called hidden photon\, but not
requiring any additional fermionic content. Driven by its simplicity\, we
outline a strategy for exploring the $(g-2)_\\mu$ solution of the $U(1)_{
L_\\mu - L_\\tau}$ parameter space using future experimental probes. In p
articular\, we focus on the muon fixed-target experiment NA64$\\mu$\, expe
riments measuring coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering at spallati
on sources\, and multi-ton liquid xenon dark matter direct detection exper
iments. We find that each of these experiments can bring a unique piece of
the puzzle to this search\, allowing us to exploit their complementarity
in a combined analysis and to pin down the nature of the $U(1)$ model.\n\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: \n\nTop-Pair Events with B-hadrons at the LHC\n\nAbstr
act: \n\nIn this talk\, I will present a recent NNLO QCD calculation of
B-hadron production in association with a top-quark pair at the LHC.
Among other things\, the results allow for a precise determination of th
e top-quark mass. They also offer positive prospects for extracting heavy-
flavour fragmentation functions from LHC data. I will explain how the p
roduction of identified hadrons can be described using fragmentation func
tions and how this formalism can be incorporated in a subtraction scheme
at NNLO.\n\n \n\nZoom link: IPPP Seminars (Thursday at 2 pm UK time)

he exploration of dark matter beyond the WIMP is of vital importance\ntowa
rds resolving the identity of dark matter. In this talk\, I will\nfocus on
light dark matter. From the theory side\, I will discuss new\ntheoretical
developments that suggest light dark matter\, including\nQCD-like theorie
s. From the experimental side\, I will present new\nproposals for the dire
ct detection of light dark matter which hold\nmuch promise. These include
the use of superconducting nanowires\,\ntwo-dimensional targets such as gr
aphene\, and heavy fermion materials.\nConsidering dark matter interaction
s with these targets\, I will\ndemonstrate the potential of the light dark
matter direct detection\nprogram in upcoming years.\n\n \n\nZoom link:

DESCRIPTION:Title:\n\nUnderstanding the Higgs mass in string theory\n\nAbs
tract: Almost all existing calculations that concern the Higgs mass are pe
rformed within the framework of an effective field theory. While sufficien
t for certain purposes\, such calculations throw up problems to do with fi
ne-tuning and naturalness in particular the famous hierarchy problem. This
makes most attempts within field theory to generically understand the Hig
gs mass pretty much futile. Even most phenomenology done within string the
ory does not respect the full string symmetries that are responsible for m
any of the remarkable finiteness properties for which string theory is fam
ous. Chief among these symmetries is worldsheet modular invariance\, which
is an exact symmetry of all perturbative closed-string vacua. And yet if
the UV is tamed by this symmetry then it should be exact even today! In th
is (quite pedagogical) talk I will discuss what we can learn from this f
act. I describe how a gravitational modular anomaly generically relates th
e Higgs mass to the one-loop cosmological constant\, yielding a string-the
oretic connection between the two fundamental quantities which are known t
o suffer from hierarchy problems in the absence of spacetime supersymmetry
. I also discuss a number of critical issues involving the use and interpr
etation of regulators in UV/IR-mixed theories such as string theory. Final
ly\, I show that ultimately the Higgs mass can be understood as arising fr
om an infinity “stringy” sum of Coleman-Weinberg effective potential
s in such theories. The results can therefore serve as the launching poi
nt for a rigorous investigation of hierarchy problems in a UV complete the
ory. \n\n\nZoom link: IPPP Seminars (Friday at 2 pm UK time)\n\nhttps:/

DESCRIPTION:Title: \n\nShedding Light on New Physics with Neutrinos\n\nAb
stract: \n\nNeutrinos are among the most abundant of all known particles
in the universe\, yet the least understood ones. In this talk\, I will rev
isit what sort of physics we expect to learn from neutrinos. I will highli
ght the big questions in neutrino physics and the impact of future experim
ents in answering these\, including the complementarities among the experi
ments at the energy\, lifetime\, intensity\, and cosmic frontiers. Special
emphasis will be placed on the electromagnetic properties of neutrino and
non-standard neutrino interactions by showing that the theoretical and ex
perimental investigation of neutrino electromagnetic interactions can serv
e as a powerful tool in the search for the fundamental theory behind the n
eutrino mass generation mechanism.\n\nZoom link: IPPP Seminars (Thursday
