The following SAGEX events have already taken place:
ESR workshop talks.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 3rd SAGEX workshop will take place via Zoom. The meeting will be AM only, on both days.
Soft skills training will also be provided, details TBC.
ESR workshop talks, soft skills training (presentation skills, academic writing and outreach).
Scientific training school covering:
Vernacular of the S-matrix (Jacob Bourjailly)
(Elliptic) multiple zeta values (Johannes Broedel)
Amplitudes meet experiments (Lance Dixon)
Spinning massive particles and black holes (Alexander Ochirov)
Feynman integrals (Erik Panzer)
Open to a limited number of external participants, advance registration required.
Formal review with the EU Project Officer, including ESR presentations.
Open to SAGEX members only.
Over the years, Zvi Bern (UCLA), Lance Dixon (SLAC) and David Kosower (CEA-Saclay) have made seminal contributions to the calculation of scattering amplitudes in Quantum Chromodynamics (the theory of strong interactions) and gravity. Their work has led to both a deeper understanding of Quantum Field Theory and powerful new tools for computing processes relevant for particle physics experiments, such as the Large Hadron Collider, as well as for gravitational wave experiments such as LIGO.
