Group Seminar

Coming to give a seminar at SISSA? Please refer to our speaker's page.

The 'Group Seminar' is a regular appointment of the Theoretical Particle Physics group. It usually takes place on Wednesday at 4pm in room 005 (ground floor) or in the Lecture Hall 137 (first floor). The seminars typically last for 50 minutes leaving time for questions and discussion.

You can find the list of seminars scheduled in the week in the calendar and the complete list of seminar in the Group Seminar history.

Conformality Loss, Walking, and 4d Complex CFTs at Weak Coupling

Four-dimensional gauge theories can flow in the infrared to non-trivial conformal field theories. It has been conjectured that conformality can be lost because of merging of two nearby fixed points that move into the complex plane, and that a walking dynamics governed by scaling dimensions of operators defined at such complex fixed points can occur. Controlled, parametrically weakly-coupled, and ultraviolet-complete 4d gauge theories that explicitly realize this scenario are presented.

Below you find the calendar of the next Group Seminars.
