Apr 17 2018 - 11:30 to 13:00 Rocío del Rey Spin zero windows to new physics

This thesis pays special attention to fine-tunings of the SM, such as those characterising the strong CP problem and the electroweak hierarchy problem.

Apr 13 2018 - 11:30 to 13:00 Sebastián Montes Gaussian Many-Body States: Tachyonic Quenches and Conformal Blocks

This thesis is divided into two independent parts:In Part I, we present a characterization of a bosonic field theory driven by a free (Gaussian) tachyonic Hamiltonian.

Sep 22 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Xabier Marcano Lepton flavor violation from low scale seesaw neutrinos with masses reachable at the LHC

Flavor physics has been crucial in the development of particle physics and it will keep being so in the future.

Sep 19 2017 - 11:30 to 12:30 Pedro F. Ramírez Non-Abelian Black Holes in String Theory

This thesis is devoted to the study of the interaction of non-Abelian Yang-Mills fields with the gravitational field in the context of String Theory and its low energy effective supergravity descri

Sep 15 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Sergio Adrián Rodríguez Torres The Halo-Galaxy connection from the Large Scale Structure of the Universe

Large-scale structure is one of the most important fields in cosmology. It allows us to study the evolution of the Universe using the distribution of galaxies on the sky.

Sep 15 2017 - 11:30 to 12:30 Sjoerd Bielleman Inflating with open strings

We consider the embedding of inflation in Type IIB string theory, with the inflaton given by the position modulus of a D7-brane, an open string.

Sep 15 2017 - 11:30 to 13:30 Josu Hernández The Quest for the Origin of Neutrino Masses
Sep 15 2017 - 09:00 to 11:00 David Preti Determination of Fundamental Parameters in the Hadronic Sector of the Standard Model
Sep 14 2017 - 12:00 to 14:00 Aitor Landete D-branes, axion monodromy and large-field inflation
This thesis explores different realizations of large-field inflation in type II string theory compactifications, in presence of the open-string sector, within the context of axion monodromy.
Sep 13 2017 - 12:00 to 13:00 Sara Saa The Higgs as a pseudo-Goldstone boson

This thesis explores the possibility that the Higgs particle may have a pseudo-Goldstone boson origin.
