Scattering Amplitudes for All Masses and Spins

I will describe a simple formalism for describing four-dimensional scattering amplitudes for particles of any mass and spin, manifesting the correct little-group symmetry transformation properties. This allows a systematic understanding of amplitudes, directly determined by Poincare invariance and unitarity, only referring to physical particles, without ever speaking of local quantum fields. Three particle amplitudes are determined by Poincare symmetry. Unitarity, in the form of consistent factorization, imposes algebraic conditions that can be used to construct all possible four-particle tree amplitudes. Many general results of quantum field theory follow the analysis of four-particle scattering, ranging from the set of all possible consistent theories for massless particles, to the impossibility of interacting massless particles of high spin, to spin-statistics, and the Weinberg-Witten theorem. The Higgs and Super-Higgs mechanisms are naturally discovered as an infrared unification of many disparate massless helicity amplitudes into a smaller number of massive amplitudes, with a simple understanding for why this can’t be extended to Higgsing for gravitons. I will illustrate a number of applications of the formalism, giving real-time, few-line computations of several standard-model amplitudes at tree level, as well the 1-loop electron (g − 2) and QCD beta function

Are we ready for LSST?

Identified as a national scientific priority by the decadal survey and many other scientific panels, the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope 10-year survey about to begin may address some of the most pressing open questions in astronomy and fundamental physics. Furthermore, continuing a tradition as old as science itself, this astronomical experiment may represent a milestone in science, data-science and data-driven scientific inference. Are we ready? As the LSST Science Collaborations Coordinator, and chair of the Transient and Variable Stars Science Collaboration, I will review the current state of LSST, and the describe the opportunities for scientists to get involved and contribute to making this a truly revolutionary adventure.

Strongly interacting matter under extreme conditions: different phases of QCD

At low energies, QCD exhibits two non-perturbative properties: dynamical chiral symmetry breaking and confinement of quarks to hadrons. At finite temperatures and baryon densities, a phase transition from the confined hadronic phase to a chirally symmetric deconfined quark-gluon plasma phase is expected to take place. The nature of this phase transition and the properties of strongly interacting matter under extreme conditions, such as high temperature and/or large densities, is the major focus of the talk. At a phase transition, quantum and thermal fluctuations can occur at all length scales and thus cannot be described with perturbative methods. I introduce the functional renormalization group (FRG) as a non-perturbative method that provides an indispensable means to understand in particular the physics in the vicinity of phase transitions.

The Compact Binary Census after LIGO/Virgo's Second Observing Run

With 5.9 binary black hole mergers and 1 binary neutron star merger announced so far, the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors have started their census of the local(ish) compact binary population. With detection rates as high as one per week in the next observing run, and one per day in the coming years, we will quickly accumulate the statistics necessary to constrain the physics relevant to binary formation. I will present some the techniques being developed to make these inferences, what we have learned so far, and what we might learn in the near future.

Caught in the act: charting galaxy transformation over cosmic time

One of the key problems in astrophysics is understanding how and why galaxies switch off their star formation, building the “red-sequence” that we observe in the local Universe. Post-starburst galaxies, where a galaxy has recently undergone a massive starburst, are sufficiently common at z~1-2 that they may contribute significantly to the growth of the red-sequence at this important epoch. It is not well known how much post-starburst galaxies contribute to the build-up of the red sequence at z<1, due to small number statistics in previous redshift surveys, and aperture bias at very low redshifts (e.g. in SDSS). Using wide-area photometric and spectroscopic surveys I will explore the gas, dust and stellar population properties of post-starburst galaxies to determine whether these galaxies are quenching, and determine how important they could be for accounting for the growth of the red galaxy population.
