MIxed QCD-electroweak corrections to Drell-Yan production @ Aula 601 e online
Mag 12@11:00 am–12:00 pm

Seminario di Fenomenologia – Dr. Raoul Röntsch (Universitá di Milano)

Drell-Yan production is one of the keystone processes at hadron colliders, relevant for a multitude of analyses from precision measurements of the Standard Model parameters to searches for New Physics. As such, it is important to obtain highly precise theoretical predictions to compare with data. I will discuss the computation of mixed QCD-EW corrections to onshell vector boson production and highlight their impact on the measurement of the mass of the W boson, where the target precision is around 0.1 permille. I will then discuss the calculation of mixed QCD-EW corrections to massless dilepton production, and present results focusing on intermediate to high invariant mass regions.

New avenues of QFT in curved spacetime @ Aula 603 e online
Mag 26@2:30 pm–3:30 pm

Seminario di Fisica teorica INFN/DIFI – Vincenzo Vitagliano (Universitá di Genova)

Spontaneous symmetry breaking is a transversal concept in modern physics, being pivotal for our understanding of mass generation in particle physics, topological defects formation in cosmology, and the appearance of condensed phases of matter. I will discuss some recent results about the way symmetry breaking occurs for systems embedded in a curved background, when curvature acts as an effective mass that, depending on the sign, enhances or suppresses the mechanism responsible for phase transitions. I will then move to a general discussion about the ground state of nonlinear field theories, commenting on the substantial changes in the structure of the quantum vacuum occurring even for the simplest choice of boundary conditions. Not only this leads to nontrivial modulation of the Casimir force as a function of external conditions, but it also regulates the behaviour at small vs large scales.
