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.

Title: Solving topological sectors of 3d SCFTs and holography Abstract: 3d superconformal field theories with {cal N} = 4 SUSY have two inequivalent 1d topological sectors, one corresponding to the Higgs branch and the other[...]

Title: Knots from M-theory Abstract: We identify a sector of 1/8 BPS surface operators in the 6d (2,0) theory on S^1*S^5. Upon KK reduction on the S^1 factor, they correspond to 1/8 BPS Wilson loops[...]

From Scattering Amplitudes to Classical Observables I present a formalism for computing classically measurable quantities directly from on-shell quantum scattering amplitudes. I will discuss the ingredients needed for obtaining the classical result, and show how to set up the calculation to derive the result efficiently. The formalism is not specific to a given theory, and is ultimately destined to be used for general relativity. In this talk, I will give two examples from spinless scattering in electrodynamics: the momentum transfer to next-to-leading order, and the momentum radiated to leading order.
