Cosmology in "the BIGdata Era"

School
ASTRONOMY

New generations of observations/experiments produce a huge amount of high-quality data. This provides opportunities for researchers around the world not only to contribute to different projects but also to inspire other groups for being incredibly sophisticated in their data accusation and modeling. This talk gives a brief introduction to data science and machine learning and how they help cosmology. In the following and as an application, I will then talk about one of my researches on using deep learning methods for point source detection. ...

Virus-like nanoparticles with metallic core: Electrostatic stability at strong coupling

We investigate the osmotic (electrostatic) pressure acting on the proteinaceous shell of a generic model of virus-like particles (VLPs), comprising a charged outer shell and a metallic nanoparticle core, coated by a charged layer and bathed in an aqueous electrolyte (salt) solution. Motivated by the recent studies accentuating the role of multivalent ions for the stability of VLPs, we focus on the effects of multivalent cations and anions in an otherwise monovalent ionic bathing solution. We perform extensive Monte-Carlo simulations based ...

A Comparison between the Cut-and-Count method with the (Modified) Matrix Element Method in a simple extension of the SM: Lmu-Ltau model

School
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

In this talk, I will compare the discriminatory power of the cut-and-count method with the matrix element method, in constraining a simple extension of the SM, namely the Lmu-Ltau interactions. The Z' associated with the spontaneously broken U(1)_{Lmu-Ltau} symmetry only interacts with the second and third generation of leptons at tree level, and is thus difficult to produce at the LHC. I argue the best channels to look for such Z' are Z' -> 4mu and Z'->2mu+ MET. Both of these channels have a large number of observables which strongly motivates the usage of a multivariant technique. I will show that the matrix element method as a multivariant ...
