    From Inhomogeneous gravity to cosmological back-reaction: Theoretical opportunity? Observational evidence?, co-organized by Thomas Schucker (CPT) CosmoBack is the opportunity to bring together two communities who rarely meet: theoretical cosmologists who actively work on inhomogeneous models and general relativity, possibly open to the backreaction conjecture, and physical cosmologists and astronomers including the leaders of the major past, ongoing, and future observational projects, which standardly use the FLRW model to interpret the data. In order to foster stimulating interactions (...)

  • Publication in PRL: “Emission Noise in an Interacting Quantum Dot: Role of Inelastic Scattering and Asymmetric Coupling to the Reservoirs”

    The understanding of noise in quantum systems is a fundamental issue in the race to gain a sharp control of the electron transfer through nanoscopic devices. In this context, we develop a theory to calculate the emission noise in an interacting quantum dot, which is the elementary brick of quantum circuit. We establish an analytical expression for the noise which is analogous to the Meir-Wingreen formula for the current in the sense that it includes inelastic scattering contributions. A (...)

    Workshop on Frontiers in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology (ICNFP 2018)

    CPT, Amphi 5
    Website The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and share new developments, experimental and theoretical, in Gravitation, Astrophysics, and Cosmology. It is part of the International Conference on New Frontiers in Physics, which aims to promote scientific exchange and development of novel ideas in science with a particular accent in interdisciplinarity. The conference will bring together worldwide experts and promising young scientists working on experimental and theoretical aspects of particle, nuclear, heavy ion and astro-particle physics and cosmology, with colleagues from other (...)

    view website Young physicists, mathematicians and philosophers shall meet for a crazy one-week expedition lost between earth and sky at the boundary of the thinkable world. The goal of this summer-school is to share deep discussions about physics and its foundations in an open and creative way for an intense time of learning, reflection and enlightenment – and all in a joyful atmosphere. With up to 17 commensals, this year’s instalment of l’agape will see a partition between more in-depth courses given in the mornings and radical, open and creative activities in the (...)

    IESC Pre-school, Analytics, Inference, and Computation in Cosmology: Advanced methods

    Institut d’Etudes Scientifiques de Cargèse (Corse), France
    view website This is an introductory school to a thematic trimester that will held at the IHP in Paris. It is organized by the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) in collaboration with the Institut d’Études Scientifiques de Cargèse (IESC). The themes which are addressed are part of Mathematical Frontiers in Cosmology. Cosmology is about understanding the origin and evolution of the universe and the formation of all structure within it — one of the most challenging intellectual projects undertaken by humanity. To make progress, we need the most powerful mathematical methods available: analytics to (...)
