The goal of this project is to study the origin of masses and flavour mixings of the elementary fermions, deriving experimental and theoretical implications of possible solutions to the flavour problem. On one hand, this will be done by means of theoretical investigation, following a new direction of research in which flavour arises as an accidental consequence of dynamical properties of a more fundamental theory. On the other hand, we will explore the phenomenology of new physics models in the flavour sector, taking advantage of the large amount of data that experiments will provide in the coming years. We will exploit the interplay of flavour and electroweak precision measurements and high-energy searches at colliders. Particular attention will be given to the study of lepton flavour universality violations, a topic that will be at the core of theoretical and experimental investigation in particle physics in the next few years. In this respect, we will study models that aim to explain in a coherent way the various experimental anomalies observed in B meson decays. The collaboration will include young researchers from INFN (Pisa,Trieste,Firenze) SISSA and La Sapienza. The main part of the funding will be used for hiring young postdoctoral researchers in order to form a strong and competitive team.

The purpose of this project is to promote the study of (supersymmetric) gauge theories and of string theory with particular emphasis on their non-perturbative aspects. The main tools that will be used to go beyond perturbation theory and get a handle on the strongly coupled dynamics are supersymmetry and holography. They both find a natural embedding in string theory. Over the years string theory has emerged as a compelling candidate for a unified quantum theory of all fundamental interactions including gravity, and has also provided many successful ideas to study quantum field theories not only in their perturbative regime but also at strong coupling. The primary challenge of this project is to establish a more solid and predictive connection among the various aspects of this research field. This project will be devoted to explore in particular the following topics: A) Supersymmetric Gauge Theories
B) Holography
C) Instanton Effects in Gauge and String Theories The participants in this project have complementary expertise, cover a wide range of topics in string and quantum field theories and have a good record of collaborations and interactions among them. In the past they have achieved several important results whose relevance is internationally acknowledged, as demonstrated by the number of “top-cited” papers they have published. All participants have been involved in past PRIN projects and have been members of European research and training networks in string theory and quantum field theory for many years. This project consists of the elaboration of theoretical models within a rapidly evolving context, which requires close contact and frequent interactions among scientists. Thus, to increase collaborations among the participating teams, we plan to organize common activities, for example informal workshops and periodic meetings, and to promote mobility of the participants. A substantial part of the budget will be devoted to hiring and training young post-docs.

The discovery of a light, weakly interacting Higgs particle is the crowning achievement of the Standard Model, which completes a long series of tremendous successes. In spite of this, however, most of the fundamental questions about the constituents and the forces of Nature, and about the structure and composition of our Universe, remain unanswered. We mention here: the origin of the Higgs sector responsible for electroweak symmetry breaking (EWSB) and the generation of the masses of the fundamental particles; the origin and properties of flavor; the extreme weakness of gravity compared to the other forces in Nature and its quantization; matter antimatter asymmetry; inflation; the origin of dark matter (DM) and dark energy in the Universe. Each of these questions represents by itself a strong theoretical reason to go beyond the SM and it is conceivable that many of them have a common explanation. A deeper picture can only emerge from a combined approach which tries to explore simultaneously the experimental information coming from the energy frontier (precision measurements of the Higgs properties and searches of new particles at LHC), the intensity frontier (quark and lepton flavour physics) and the astroparticle and cosmological frontier. The main goal of this project consists in identifying coherent explanations of the different phenomena and fundamental questions by combining the vast experimental information coming from the forthcoming experiments, in particular from the LHC, with the most advanced theoretical developments. This objective requires a global strategy that makes use of strong competences in several different fields of investigation. In order to achieve this goal, we put together some of the leading particle physics theorists operating in Firenze, Napoli, Padova, Roma La Sapienza, Roma Tre, SNS and SISSA into a very experienced and strong team.
2018–2019 Hong Liu (MIT) and Erik Tonni (SISSA) are principal investigators on this project. MIT/SISSA collaboration supported by MISTI Global Seeds Funds (faculty funds): 15 200 $.
2019 Andrea Trombettoni is CNR responsible in the ACRI project “Functional and Renormalization Group Methods in Quantum and Statistical Physics”. The project is coordinated by Gian Paolo Vacca (INFN – Bologna), and sponsored by ACRI (Associazione di Fondazioni e Casse di Risparmio Spa) under the Young Investigator Training Program 2018, intended to foster young international researchers and to promote their scientific collaboration with a network of Italian research institutions. It includes an opening for short term individual research fellowships: 6 young researchers will visit Trieste in September 2019 for a month. Within the project, the conference “Functional and Renormalization-Group methods – Italian Meeting (FRGIM 2019)” will be organized, taking place at ECT*, Trento, in the days 16-20 September 2019.
2017 Erik Tonni obtained funds from ACRI to support young researchers through individual fellowships (within 3 000 and 4 000 € each one). For young researchers in order to attend the program Entanglement in Quantum Systems at the Galileo Galilei Institute in June/July 2018 and to visit another research institute in Italy. Total budget: 48 750 €.

The landmark detection of gravitational waves (GWs) emitted by merging black-hole and neutron-star binaries have opened a new era in physics. The wealth of data coming from current and future GW detectors (such as 3G, LISA, PTA) will provide an opportunity to challenge current paradigms, exploring fundamental physics from an entirely new perspective. In this new observational window, we could learn that general relativity is not adequate to describe the strong-field regime of gravity; or that there exist new fundamental fields beyond the standard model, or new kinds of compact objects, challenging the current understanding of dark matter and dark energy. The proposed studies are classified into four groups with considerable overlap: i) Perturbation techniques in general relativity and beyond ii) Non-linear simulations of binary compact objects beyond general relativity iii) GWs from the dark universe iv) Data analysis for GW experiments.

General Relativity (GR) describes gravity on a huge range of scales, field strengths and velocities. However, despite its successes, GR has been showing its age. Cosmological data support the existence of a Dark Sector, but may also be interpreted as a breakdown of our understanding of gravity. Also, GR is intrinsically incompatible with quantum field theory, and should be replaced, at high energies, by a (still unknown) quantum theory of gravity. GRAMS is a high-risk/high-gain project seeking to investigate the implications of LIGO/Virgo gravitational-wave observations on this theoretical picture, by exploring whether those observations are consistent with gravitational theories built to reproduce the large-scale behaviour of the Universe (i.e. the existence of Dark Energy and/or Dark Matter), while at the same time passing local tests of gravity thanks to non-perturbative screening mechanisms. GRAMS will provide the first numerical-relativity simulations of compact binaries ever in gravitational theories of interest for cosmology.

The Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA), a European-led space mission with US/NASA participation, will probe GWs at milli-Hertz frequencies, making it possible to map the gravitational field of black holes millions of times larger than those detected by LIGO/Virgo. The project will address several open problems pertaining to LISA science, and particularly to a class of sources known as “extreme mass ratio inspirals”. We will produce models accurately describing the GW signals from these sources, and we will develop techniques to dis-entangle the many thousands of sources which LISA is expected to measure simultaneously.

A coordinated research training effort in this field is needed now to mobilise the community in Europe and prepare a core group of young scientists in anticipation of new observational data in the early/mid 2020s from future space missions with strong European involvement. These data will have the quality and volume to yield transformational science on the formation of black-holes in galaxies, as long as the necessary expertise and synergies among observation, theory and data analytics exist within the European astronomy community. We propose to achieve this goal by setting up a research training network that brings together leading scientists in observational and theoretical studies of black holes and galaxies, industrial experts in cutting-edge big-data technologies, and professionals in science dissemination. Together, we will setup doctoral research projects each of which combines state-of-the-art observations, numerical simulations and innovative analytic tools to compare theory with observation and shed light on the physics of black hole formation in the context of galaxy evolution. The training on expertise from different research areas (observational astronomy, theoretical astrophysics) and sectors (academic, industrial) will be achieved by carefully designed secondments, mixed doctoral supervisory committees (academia, industry), well coordinated events for team communication and interaction, as well as network-wide courses on astrophysics and transferable skills. The proposed research training programme aspires to generate individuals that in addition to academic competences, master big-data analytics and have the capacity to apply these technologies to solve problems in different sectors (research, industry, non-academic) by developing innovative products and services.

Student Training Program

External PhD students (especially foreign ones) can apply to this program so to have coverage of their local expenses while attending in SISSA some courses of our PhDs. The application can be send directly to the relevant PhD coordinators.

Visiting Student Program

This is a program aimed at offering a service to the national higher education system, by which Italian universities can setup agreements with us so to share graduate students, for example allowing external students to follow specific courses offered by the Area’s PhDs. Students in the program can also apply for the support provided by the Student Training Program in case of insufficient financing by their home institution. You can download a draft of the agreement template using the following link.
