Hiroyuki Sagawa ( University of Aizu and RIKEN, Japan ) The nuclear symmetry energy and the breaking of the isospin symmetry: how do they reconcile with each other ?
Abstract: A deeper understanding of the density dependence of the symmetry energy would be highly needed, because the accurate characterization of the symmetry energy entails profound consequences for the study of the neutron distributions in nuclei along the whole nuclear chart, as well of other properties of neutron-rich nuclei. The symmetry energy is also of paramount importance for understanding the properties of compact objects like neutron stars. \\ The Isobaric Analog State (IAS) is one of the well established properties of nuclei that is measured accurately, and is dominantly sensitive to the isospin symmetry breaking (ISB) in the nuclear medium due to Coulomb interaction. In several microscopic calculations, it was found that there is an inconsistency between the properties of the symmetry energy and our knowledge of the Isobaric Analog State (IAS) and of the ISB forces. We will discuss how to solve this problem by the state-of-the-art fully self-consistent HF+RPA calculations of all possible contributions to the excitation energy of IAS with Skyrme-type EDF.\\ X. Roca-Maza and G. Colo and H. Sagawa, Phys. Rev. Lett. 120, 202501 (2018).

Pierre Vanhove ( IPhT ) L?attraction de la gravitation
Abstract: La force de gravité est la seule force universelle. Elle agit sur toutes les formes de matière et d’énergie. Elle conditionne la structure et la dynamique de notre Univers, dont notre compréhension est intimement liée au modèle théorique de la gravité. La détection des ondes gravitationnelles ouvre une nouvelle fenêtre d’observation sur la nature de la gravité. La théorie des cordes nous enseigne sur des aspects fondamentaux de cette force et sa relation avec les autres forces fondamentales. \par Dans cet exposé, nous expliquerons les difficultés à penser la gravité et ce que l’on peut espérer découvrir sur la nature fondamentale de cette force mystérieuse.

Gabriel Leon ( National University of La Plata, Argentina ) Observational constraints on inflationary potentials within the quantum collapse framework
Abstract: The inflationary paradigm is the most successful model for the generation of primordial perturbations. These perturbations have a purely quantum origin, while the inhomogeneities and anisotropies observed today exhibit a classical behavior. The model called Continuous Spontaneous Localization (CSL) is a proposed mechanism to solve the measurement problem in quantum mechanics. In this presentation, we will analyze the theoretical predictions resulting from incorporating the CSL model into the inflationary Universe. In particular, the predictions for the scalar spectral index and the tensor-to-scalar ratio are different from the standard ones. Based on these predictions, we will show that the inflationary potentials allowed by recent observational data are different from the traditional approach.

Suratna Das ( IIT Kanpur ) The `unitarity problem' of Higgs inflation in the light of collapse dynamics
Abstract: Higgs Inflation is no doubt one of the most favoured models of inflation in present time. But the huge non- minimal coupling of the Higgs field with gravity required for the model to work often raises concern which is dubbed as the 'unitarity problem' of Higgs inflation. We will show that CSL-like collapse dynamics, otherwise applied to inflationary dynamics in order to explain the quantum-to-classical transition of primordial quantum modes, can bring down the value of non-minimal coupling considerably.

Thibault Damour ( IHES ) From Classical Gravity to Quantum Amplitudes (1/4)
Abstract: The recent observation of gravitational wave signals from inspiralling and coalescing binary black holes has been significantly helped, from the theoretical side, by the availability of analytical results on the motion and gravitational radiation of binary systems. \par The course will deal with the Effective One-Body (EOB) theory of the motion and radiation of binary systems, and explain the links between this formalism and various classical and quantum approaches to gravitationally interacting two-body systems, from traditional post-Newtonian computations of the effective two-body action to quantum gravitational scattering amplitudes. \par The following analytical techniques will be reviewed ab initio: \\ 1 - Matched Asymptotic Expansions approach to the motion of black holes and neutron stars; \\ 2 - post-Newtonian theory of the motion of point particles; \\ 3 - Multipolar post-Minkowskian theory of the gravitational radiation of general sources; \\ 4 - Effective One-Body (EOB) theory of the motion and radiation of binary systems. \par The EOB formalism was initially based on a resummation of post-Newtonian-expanded results. The post-Newtonian approach assumes small gravitational potentials and small velocities, and loses its validity during the last orbits before the merger of black holes. The resummed EOB approach was able to extend the validity of the post-Newtonian description of the motion and radiation of binary black holes to the strong-field, high-velocity regime reached during the last orbits, and the merger. EOB theory initially used a dictionary to translate post-Newtonian-expanded results on (slow-motion) bound states of gravitationally interacting binary systems into the (resummed) Hamiltonian of a particle moving in an effective external gravitational field. \par The second part of the course will present the recent extension of EOB theory to the description of (classical) scattering states within the post-Minkowskian approach which does not assume that velocities are small. This led to new insights in the high-energy limit of gravitational scattering and opened the way to transcribe quantum gravitational scattering amplitudes into their EOB Hamiltonian description. For instance, some two-loop ultra high-energy quantum scattering results of Amati, Ciafaloni and Veneziano could be transcribed into an improved knowledge of the high-energy limit of the classical gravitational interaction of two black holes. This leads also to interesting predictions about a linear-Regge-trajectory behavior of high-angular-momenta, high-energy circular orbits.

Mathias Pierre ( LPT Orsay ) Dark matter phenomenology: from simplified WIMP models to refined alternative solutions
Abstract: Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) are among the best motivated dark matter candidates. However, in light of non conclusive detection signals and strong constraints from collider, direct and indirect detection experiments, I will start by giving an overview of the WIMP paradigm in the context of simplified dark matter models. I will then discuss models considering extended gauge structures such as constructions involving generalized Chern- Simons couplings and a specific WIMP scenario motivated by flavor anomalies. In a second part, I will discuss an alternative dark matter thermal production mechanism by showing an explicit realization of the Strongly Interacting Massive Particles (SIMPs) paradigm in the context of a non-abelian hidden gauge structure. In a last part I will discuss the strong impact of the reheating stage of the universe on the dark matter density production in the context of non-thermal scenarios.
