"Quantum Information Science and High Energy Physics at the Large Hadron Collider"

The relationship between quantum entanglement and an observed thermalization in particle production - even in the Higgs boson channel - at the Large Hadron Collider (Rev. D 98, 054007 (2018)) will be presented.  The considerable amount of collected data at 13 TeV proton-proton collision energy enables systematic investigation of this initial study and additional links between Quantum Information Science and particle physics at the energy frontier.  Near-term future studies will also be presented.

About the speaker

Keith Baker's research is in experimental particle physics: The energy frontier at the Large Hadron Collider in the ATLAS collaboration and precision studies at sub-eV energies.  Current topics include quantum information science in HEP, electroweak symmetry breaking, and beyond the standard model physics searches.

"Primordial black hole dark matter from single field inflation"

I will discuss the idea that black holes may constitute la large fraction of the Universe’s dark matter, focusing mostly on their formation from large primordial fluctuations generated during inflation.

I will summarize the ups and downs of this mechanism and comment on potential ideas that may help to alleviate its main shortcoming. 

About the speaker

Guillermo obtained his PhD in Physics at U. Autónoma de Madrid (Spain) and held postdoctoral positions in Italy (U. di Padova), Switzerlad (U. de Genève) and Germany (U. Heidelberg). As a theoretical cosmologist, Guillermo is interested in the dynamics of the universe as a whole, its origin and evolution. He also works on specific open questions in the realm of the  microcosm of particle physics, which are intimately connected to the vast scales of the universe.

More details on Guillermo's research can be found here.
