Abstract:  This talk will present the exact expression for an integrated correlator of four superconformal primary operators in the stress tensor multiplet of SU(N) N = 4 supersymmetric YangMills, based on the localised partition function of the N = 2∗ theory. I will show that this integrated correlator can be expressed as a strikingly simple twodimensional lattice sum. This is a function of the complex Yang–Mills coupling, and is manifestly invariant under SL(2, Z) (Montonen–Olive) duality. The correlator satisfies a powerful Laplace equation that relates its value for SU(N) to its value for SU(N−1) and SU(N+1). For finite N the correlator reproduces and extends perturbative and nonperturbative N = 4 SYM results. The largeN expansion is holographically related to the SL(2, Z)invariant low energy expansion of the type IIB superstring fourgraviton amplitude in AdS5 × S5. The talk will also describe the extension of of these results to npoint correlators with n > 4 that violate the U(1) bonus symmetry maximally.

Abstract:  I will review recent progress on carving out the space of consistent weakly coupled gravitational effective field theories, both in flat space and in Anti de Sitter space. The main technical tools are dispersive sum rules for the Smatrix (flat space) or for CFT correlators (AdS space), which follow from the general principles of unitarity and causality. Higher derivative couplings are expected to be of order one in the units of the UV cutoff. Our approach justifies this expectation and allows to prove rigorous bounds on the order one coefficients. In particular, we prove a precise version of the conjecture that any large N CFT with a large gap must be dual to a local effective field theory in AdS.

Abstract:  Generalized Langevin equations with nonlinear forces and memory kernels are commonly used to describe the effective dynamics of coarsegrained variables in molecular dynamics. Such reduced dynamics play an essential role in the study of a broad class of processes, ranging from chemical reactions in solution to conformational changes in biomolecules or phase transitions in condensed matter systems. I will first discuss the derivation of the generalized Langevin equations, emphasizing the need for memory in the effective dynamics due to the lack of a proper separation of time scales. Then, I will turn on the inference of such generalized Langevin equations from observed trajectories, using a maximum likelihood approach. This datadriven approach provides a reduced dynamical model for collective variables, enabling the accurate sampling of their longtime dynamical properties at a computational cost drastically reduced with respect to allatom numerical simulations. I will illustrate the potential of this method on several model systems, both in and out of equilibrium.

Abstract:  An analog simulator is a synthetic physical system, which emulates in a controlled way a physical problem. You can get answers about the physical problem by directly performing experiments on the simulator. This approach is particularly relevant for quantum problems where computation times grows exponentially with the system’s size. In the present seminar, I will present the polariton platform and explain how it is relevant for analog simulation of many interesting open problems. Cavity polaritons are hybrid excitonphoton quasiparticle emerging from the strong coupling regime between photons confined in an optical cavity and excitons confined in quantum wells. They present physical properties reflecting their mixed nature. From the photon part, they inherit a small effective mass and can be confined in lattices with typical dimensions of the order of a few microns. Their excitonic part endows them with interparticle interactions resulting in a giant Kerr non linearity. Moreover the system is intrinsically open and out of equilibrium because photons constantly leak out from the cavity. Cavity polaritons have been shown to present fascinating properties such as Bose Einstein condensation at elevated temperature, superfluidity, multistability etc [1]. In the present talk, I will explain how the polariton plateform is particularly suitable to realize analog simulation of open complex systems and explore fundamental physical phenomena. I will describe a few recent results of our group: How do wave localize in exotic quasicrystals and how fractality does develop? This physics can be emulated with polariton lattices [2] Polariton condensates are out of equilibrium and their phase dynamics has been predicted to obey the celebrated Kardar Parisi Zhang (KPZ) equation. We have been able to reveal experimentally universal KPZ scaling laws in the first order coherence of a 1D polariton condensate.[3] Polariton lattices are also very interesting for the investigation of topological photonics. In particular, the ability to drive the system with controlled phases opens a new paradigm for nonlinear topological photonics. [4] References : [1] Ciuti & I.

Abstract:  Black holes in the Universe do not exist in isolation but, rather, they are surrounded by matter. It is therefore important to study the stability properties of black holes under matter field perturbations. In this talk we will discuss the stability properties under classical field perturbations of several rotating (Kerr) black hole spacetimes. In particular, we will present recent results on some of the mode stability properties of the following: (i) a maximallyrotating (extremal) Kerr black hole, whose event horizon suffers from the socalled Aretakis instability; (ii) Kerrde Sitter spacetime, representing a Kerr black hole in a Universe with accelerated expansion, and so possessing a cosmological horizon as well as an event horizon; and (iii) the inner (Cauchy) horizon of Kerr Newmande Sitter spacetime, representing a charged Kerrde Sitter black hole, where we find evidence for violation of Penrose’s strong Cosmic Censorship conjecture.

Abstract:  The analysis of azimuthal correlations along with jet shapes in multiparticle production can be useful to uncover the existence of new physics beyond the Standard Model, e.g., Hidden Valley, in the e + e − annihilation at high energies. In this seminar, based on previous theoretical studies and using PYTHIA8 event generator, it is found that both azimuthal and rapidity longrange correlations are enhanced due to the presence of a new stage of matter on top of the QCD partonic cascade. Ridge structures, similar to those observed at the LHC, show up providing a possible signature of new physics at future e + e −colliders. Preliminary results on pp collisions will be discussed for completeness.

Abstract:  This talk will present some results, obtained with statistical mechanics techniques, on the planted matching problem. The latter is an inference problem, where the goal is to recover a perfect matching hidden (planted) in a weighted graph, the weights on the planted and nonplanted edges being drawn with two different distributions.

Abstract:  Upcoming LargeScale Structure surveys will likely become the next leading sources of cosmological information, making it crucial to have a precise understanding of the influence of baryons on cosmological observables. The Effective Field Theory of LargeScale Structure (EFTofLSS) provides a consistent way to predict the clustering of dark matter and baryons on large scales, where their leading corrections in perturbation theory are given by a simple and calculable functional form even after the onset of baryonic processes. In this paper, we extend the two fluidlike system up to twoloop order in perturbation theory. Along the way, we show that a new linear counterterm proportional to the relative velocity of the fluids could generically be present, but we show that its effects are expected to be small in our universe. Regardless, we show how to consistently perform perturbation theory in the presence of this new term. We find that the EFTofLSS at twoloop order can accurately account for the details of baryonic processes on large scales. We compare our results to a hydrodynamical Nbody simulation at many redshifts and find that the counterterms associated with the leading corrections to dark matter and baryons start to differ between redshifts z ≈ 3 and z ≈ 2, signaling the onset of starformation physics. We then use these fits to compute the lensing power spectrum, show that the understanding of baryonic processes will be important for analyzing CMBS4 data, and show that the twoloop EFTofLSS accurately captures these effects for ℓ ≲ 2000. Our results are also potentially of interest for current and future weak lensing surveys.

Abstract:  After the first gravitational wave detection in 2015 and the GW170817 multimessenger observation, the gravitationalwave astronomy has evolved rapidly. LIGO and Virgo detectors have performed their 3rd observing run between April 2019 and March 2020 and the third catalog of gravitationalwaves sources (GWTC3) has just been released, with a total of 90 sources detected so far. Upgrades of LIGO and Virgo are planned in the decade 20202030, increasing the scientific potential of the gravitationalwave detector network, which will include two more instruments in the next years: KAGRA in Japan and a third LIGO in India. In the decade 2030, the Einstein Telescope project, an European underground gravitationalwave observatory, aims to increase the sensitivity of current detector by one order of magnitude. In this seminar, after an summary about the current gravitationalwave observations, I will be describe in detail the LIGOVirgo plans for the 2020 decade and then the scientific objectives and plans for Einstein Telescope.
