        Tomasso de Lorenzo won the 2020 Giulio Rampa Thesis Prize for Outstanding Research in General Relativity.
        From the committee:
        "Dr. De Lorenzo’s thesis, “Black holes as a Gateway to Quantum: Classical and Semi-classical Explorations” masters an impressive range of topics in quantum gravity, providing novel insights into deep conceptual problems of classical and quantum black holes physics. The fresh point of view discussed by Tommaso De Lorenzo has already influenced several existing (...)

      • Roger Penrose Nobel Prize 2020

        A prestigious friend of the CPT has received the 2020 Nobel Prize for his work on black hole physics. Roger Penrose has given a tremendous amount of contributions to science, and his ideas are highly influential for some of the research done in our lab. His close ties with the CPT have materialized in his visit to our local master program in 2014 and his participation in the local conference Twistors Meet Loops organized by the quantum gravity team in 2019.
        The Centre de Physique Théorique (...)

        Soutenance de these de Adrien Kuntz: Testing gravity with the two-body problem

        CPT Amphi 5
        La soutenance de these se tiendra en virtuelle et seulement quelques membres du jury seront presents. Pour participer virtuellement à la soutenance via la réunion Zoom: lien vers zoom ID de réunion : 946 4707 0638 Code secret : 9RkK3A Voici le resumé en anglais: Gravitational waves provide a new probe into the strong-field regime of gravity. It is thus essential to identify the predictions of General Relativity on the nature of the two-body problem, and to contrast them to alternative theories. This thesis aims at comparing the predictions of General Relativity and scalar-tensor (...)

      • Les nouvelles technologies pour mesurer les réseaux sociaux des primates

        Le plus souvent, les relations sociales entre animaux sont analysées via des observations directes de leurs comportements. Les nouvelles technologies à base de capteurs automatiques, moins coûteuses et de plus en plus utilisées, peuvent-elles remplacer l’observation détaillée ? Une équipe interdisciplinaire de chercheurs du Centre de Physique Théorique et du Laboratoire de Psychologie Cognitive a montré que, bien que les capteurs ne capturent pas forcément toutes les interactions dans un groupe (...)

        Propriétés spectrales de modèles de graphène périodique et désordonné

        CPT, Amphi 5
        Soutenance de thèse de Sylvain Zalczer dont le directeur de thèse est Jean-Marie Barbaroux. La soutenance aura lieu en visioconférence (Crise sanitaire - Covid-19) This thesis deals with various aspects of spectral theory of operators used to model graphene. It is made of two parts. The first parts deals with the periodic case. I begin by presenting a general theory of periodic systems. I introduce then different models of graphene and compare them. Finally, I look at various ways to make graphene a semiconductor. In particular, I study different types of nanoribbons and I give a result of (...)

        Hot topics in Modern Cosmology: Spontaneous Workshop XIV

        IESC Cargese, France
        Cargese, France
        view website Spontaneous Workshop (SW) brings together specialists in particle physics, astrophysics and theoretical physics at the Institute of Scientific Studies of Cargèse (IESC) to exchange recent knowledge on Cosmology. The goal is to stimulate debate for generating innovative ideas on emerging issues. With this in mind, the number of participants is limited to 30-40 and the workshop program is based on an optimal number of concise presentations, with a sufficient discussion space to facilitate interactions between participants. Postdoctoral and PhD students are encouraged to (...)
