Charla de Maurizio Giannotti sobre axiones

Maurizio Giannotti is a Physics Professor at Barry University, Fulbright visitor at CAPA. Research in astroparticle physics, axions and axion like particles.

Abstract: The research on axions has gained great attention in the last decade. We are finally reaching the experimental capabilities to detect axions in the most motivated parameter regions and the University of Zaragoza is playing a major role in this effort. In this talk, I will present an overview of the strong CP problem and of the axion solution. I will emphasize the phenomenological aspects and in particular try to justify the selection of physically motivated axion parameter regions. I will emphasize the impact of axions on stellar evolution and the experimental potential to detect them in the near future.

Jueves 14 de octubre, en el seminario de Física Nuclear, a las 12:00.

XLVIII International Meeting on Fundamental Physics 2021

IMFP

The International Meeting on Fundamental Physics is the Spanish Symposium on high energy particle physics with longest tradition. Since its creation in 1973, it has been organized on an annual basis by each of the main Spanish groups in turn. Its scientific programs have included dedicated reviews with the latest results in the fields of particle and astroparticle physics and cosmology.
In the 2021 edition, organized by the Centro de Astropartículas y Física de Altas Energías (CAPA) of Universidad de Zaragoza, sessions are devoted to review the latest experimental results and their theoretical and phenomenological implications. The program also includes sessions on neutrino physics, dark matter searches, ultra-high energy gamma and cosmic ray physics, gravitational waves and cosmology. Dedicated sessions summarize current initiatives on experiments beyond colliders and the status of ongoing and planned future large facilities. A session is devoted to discuss the Spanish scientific policy and strategy in particle physics

Seminario CAPA online by Violeta Gonzalez Perez:

Star forming emission line galaxies at z~1 as cosmological tracers

El 1 de Julio a las 12.10 h. tendrá lugar el seminario organizado por el Centro de Astropartículas y Física de Altas Energías “Star forming emission line galaxies at z~1 as cosmological tracers”, impartido por Violeta Gonzalez Perez, investigadora del programa “Atracción de Talento” en el CIAFF de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid.
El seminario se realizará a través del siguiente enlace zoom. No te lo pierdas!

Abstract:
Current and future cosmological surveys (SDSS-IV/eBOSS, DESI, Euclid) are targeting star forming galaxies emission line galaxies at z~1. These galaxies are dominated by [OII] emitters when the selection is done using optical instruments. This talk will start with an overview of the different techniques to study the formation and evolution of galaxies computationally to then focus on the modelling of star forming emission line galaxies (ELGs). Using a state-of-the-art model of galaxy formation and evolution we explore the global properties of [OII] emitters, including their large scale environment. Model galaxies are selected with cuts in different properties such that the samples can be directly compared with a range of both narrow and wide observational surveys: DEEP2, VVDS, eBOSS and DESI. The selected [OII] emitters are hosted by haloes with halo masses above 10^10.3 Msun/h, with ~90% of them being central star-forming galaxies. The predicted mean halo occupation distributions of [OII] emitters has a shape typical of that inferred for star-forming galaxies, with the contribution from central galaxies being far from the canonical step function. The mean halo occupation distribution for central [OII] emitters can be described as the sum of an asymmetric Gaussian for disks and a step function for spheroids, which plateaus below unity. The large scale environment of model galaxies is obtained for fixed number density samples, using a velocity-shear-tensor and a tidal-tensor algorithms. About half of the fixed number density ELGs live in filaments, following the distribution of SFR selected galaxies with the same number density, and a third in cosmic sheets. SFR cut selected ELGs and general galaxies with equal number density, have the same large scale bias but their clustering below separations of 1Mpc/h are different. Although as a first approximation the samples that will be targeted by DESI, 4MOST, MSE, etc. are simply star forming galaxies, the model ELGs do trace a slightly different large scale environment.
