Seminars

During the semester we have a high energy seminar and a lunch seminar. In addition to these two seminars we participate in a joint theoretical high energy theory seminar in Newe Shalom. The joint seminar takes place on Tuesdays from 10:30 until 13:30 and includes two talks and lunch. This seminar is attended by the high energy groups of all the Israeli institutions and usually attracts a crowd of roughly twenty participants.

Calculating Feynman diagrams has been attracting considerable research effort over decades. Recently a new method for calculating Feynman diagrams was developed in our group. This method, based on finding a symmetry group related to the[...]

We study BPS vortex configurations in N=2 U(N) SQCD with hypermultiplets in the fundamental of SU(N) and general U(1) charges. These vortices are generalizations of the Hanany-Tong vortices. In the talk we will focus on[...]

We analyze the mechanism of spontaneous symmetry breaking of scale invariance in Galilean invariant field theories. We show that there is no dynamical gapless dilaton mode unless the $U(1)$ particle number symmetry is spontaneously broken.[...]

Abstract: The potential behind the horizon of an eternal black hole in classical theories is described in terms of data that is available to an external observer – the reflection coefficient of a wave that[...]

We will discuss three dimensional N>1 supersymmetric field theories dimensionally reduced on a circle. In particular we will study what three dimensional dualities might and might not imply about physics in two dimensions.

The integrability of N=4 SYM is thought to be preserved under a class of transformations called gamma deformations. It was recently observed (arXiv:1512.06704) that in a certain parametric limit of the space spanned by such[...]

Abstract: We will explore aspects of path integral contours that compute out-of-time order correlation functions in QFT. In particular, we will describe how these contours naturally generalize the Schwinger-Keldysh formalism, and develop some useful ways[...]

We will discuss a relation between conformal blocks, describing kinematics of a CFT, and integrable models of quantum-mechanical particles. I will show how the dependence of blocks on cross-ratios is encoded in equations of motion[...]
