Particle Theory Seminar: Hirosi Ooguri, California Institute of Technology, "Symmetry in QFT and Gravity"

Speaker: Hirosi Ooguri (Caltech)
Title: Symmetry in QFT and Gravity
Abstract: I will review aspects of symmetry in quantum field theory and combine them with the AdS/CFT correspondence to derive constraints on symmetry in quantum gravity. The quantum gravity constraints to be discussed include the no-go theorem on global symmetry, the completeness of gauge charges, and the decomposition of high energy states into gauge group representations.

Dissertation Defense: David Stewart, Yale University, "Jet to Event Activity Correlations in Small System Collisions at STAR"

Heavy ion collisions at the LHC and RHIC produce a quark gluon plasma (QGP), in which quarks and gluons are deconfined into an extended medium. This “fourth phase” of matter is also believed to have been the first material phase of the universe following the Big Bang. In experiment, high energy partons scatter at short time scales and may subsequently lose energy, or are “quenched”, via interactions with the QGP.

NPA Seminar, Jay Hyun Jo, Yale University, “First search for an excess of electron neutrinos in MicroBooNE”

We present a measurement of electron-neutrino interactions from the Fermilab Booster Neutrino Beam using the MicroBooNE liquid argon time projection chamber to address the nature of the excess of low-energy interactions observed by the MiniBooNE collaboration. Three independent electron-neutrino searches are performed across multiple single-electron final states, including an exclusive search for two-body scattering events with a single proton, a semi-inclusive search for pionless events, and a fully inclusive search for events containing all hadronic final states.

NPA Seminar, Lee Hagaman & Giacomo Scanavini, Yale University, "First Test of the MiniBooNE Low Energy Excess Under a Single-Photon Hypothesis in the MicroBooNE Experiment"

Abstract TBA
In-person attendance will be capped at 20 people on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the current Yale policies.

Introduction to the Advanced Prototyping Center: Designing for rapid prototyping

In this workshop we will cover the equipment available at the Wright Lab Advanced Prototyping Center and how to get started designing parts. Basics of CNC laser and abrasive water jet cutting will be included, as well as an introduction to 3D printing. No prior experience is required, but having an idea for a project that you may want to get started on would be great. We will start off with a classroom presentation and then have a quick tour of the facilities. Attendance will be limited to 15, but additional sessions will be arranged if the session fills.

WIDG Seminar, Jorge Torres, Yale University, “Tuning into neutrinos on the radio with the Askaryan Radio Array”

Neutrino Astronomy allows us to observe the distant, high-energy universe. It was born when the IceCube experiment reported the first observation of neutrinos with energies in the PeV regime. Neutrinos with higher energies, called ultra-high energy (UHE) neutrinos, are predicted to exist, but they have not been observed yet due to their extremely low flux, requiring immense detection volume.
