DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Takahiro Tanaka ()\nIt has been claimed that the sup
er Hubble modes generated during inflation can make loop corrections diver
ge. Even if we introduce an infrared (IR) cutoff at a comoving scale as an
ad hoc but a practical way for the regularization\, we encounter the \nse
cular growth\, which may lead to the breakdown of perturbative expansion f
or a sufficiently long lasting inflation. We show that the IR pathology
can be attributed to the presence of residual gauge degrees of freedom in
the local observable universe. \nWe will show that choosing the Euclidean
vacuum as the initial state ensures the invariance under the above-mention
ed residual gauge transformations. We will also show that as long as we co
nsider a gauge invariant quantity in the local universe\, \nwe encounter n
either the IR divergence nor the secular growth.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de

ization\, including both contributions from\nsingle-parton and double-part
on scattering. High-energy\nfactorization causes a momentum inbalance in t
he final state\,\nallowing for the description of observables at tree-leve
l that would\nrequire next-to-leading order precision in collinear factori
zation.\nThe momentum inbalance is caused by non-vanishing transverse\nmom
entum components for the initial-state partons which thus are\noff-shell.
We will clarify how to define gauge invariant scattering\namplitudes with
off-shell partons\, and how to calculate them\nefficiently.\n\nhttps://ind

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sebastian Paßehr (DESY)\nThe discovery of a Higgs-l
ike particle at the LHC has triggered considerable ongoing effort to revea
l its nature and properties. The mass of the particle is one of its basic
properties\; due to the high-precision mass measurement\, higher-order cal
culations are necessary to make competitive predictions. Although with cur
rent experimental results the particle could be identified as the Standard
Model Higgs boson\, other explanations in extended models are possible. I
n the theoretically well motivated Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (
MSSM) the discovered particle could be one state of a richer Higgs-boson s
pectrum.\n\nI will present the most recent status of the Higgs-particle sp
ectrum in the CP-violating MSSM in the Feynman-diagrammatic approach with
non-trivial renormalization. The effect of new two-loop contributions of t
he order α_t α_b + α_b^2 + α_any α_s is discussed and compared with t
he previously known two-loop corrections.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/

boson and top quark data favour metastability of our vacuum which raises q
uestions as to why the Universe has chosen an energetically disfavoured st
ate and remained there during the primordial dynamics. In this talk I will
point out that allowing a simple Higgs-inflaton coupling can explain why
the Higgs ended up in the electroweak vacuum after inflation. I will show
that this coupling is present in many realistic models of reheating and th
us well motivated. I will also discuss the effects of the Higgs-inflaton c
oupling during the initial period of reheating\, also known as preheating\
, where the sizable production of Higgs particles can induce large fluctua
tions of the Higgs field which may destabilize the electroweak vacuum.\n\n

describe the connection between the high-energy limit of the six-gluon sc
attering amplitude in N=4 super Yang-Mills theory and a certain class of s
ingle-valued polylogarithmic functions.\nWhile the evaluation of the six-g
luon amplitude to high loop orders in general kinematics is a very difficu
lt problem\, the amplitude in the multi-Regge regime is governed by a disp
ersion-like integral which is fully known even at finite coupling.\nHoweve
r\, this dispersion-like integral is formulated in Fourier-Mellin space. O
btaining expressions in momentum space thus requires carrying out said int
egral which is tedious beyond the lowest loop orders.\nI will show how an
understanding of the mathematical structure of the single-valued polylogs
to which the integral evaluates gives rise to an efficient and algorithmic
evaluation of the amplitude and briefly mention extensions to higher-poin
t amplitudes.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/17536/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Sebatien Clesse (RWTH Aachen University)\nThe recent
detection by Advanced LIGO of gravitational waves (GW) from the merging o
f a binary black hole system sets new limits on the merging rates of massi
ve primordial black holes (PBH) that could be identified to the dark matte
r in the Universe. If PBH are regrouped in clusters with a similar densi
ty to the one observed in ultra-faint dwarf galaxies\, merging rates are c
omparable to aLIGO expectations. Massive PBH dark matter predicts the exis
tence of thousands of those dwarf galaxies where star formation is unlikel
y because of gas accretion onto PBH\, which would possibly provide a solut
ion to the missing satellite and too-big-to-fail problems. Such PBH coul
d be produced in the early Universe\, due to the collapse of large density
fluctuations generated during a phase of hybrid inflation. A model easil
y embedded in high-energy frameworks such as supersymmetry. aLIGO and fu
ture GW antennas could be able measure the abundance and mass distribution
of PBH in the range 5 - 200 solar masses to 10% accuracy\, which could he
lp to reveal their nature\, with profound implications for cosmology and h
igh energy physics.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/17

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Uwe-Jens Wiese ()\nBesides lattice QCD in particle p
hysics\, strongly coupled gauge theories arise\, for example\, in the cond
ensed matter physics of spin liquids\, or in the quantum information theor
y of Kitaev's toric code\, which is a Z(2) lattice gauge theory.\nNumerica
l simulations of gauge theories on classical computers\,\nin particular\,
at high fermion density or in out-of-equilibrium situations\, suffer from
severe sign problems that prevent the importance sampling underlying Monte
Carlo calculations. Quantum simulators are accurately controllable quantu
m devices that mimic other quantum systems. They do not suffer from sign p
roblems\, because their hardware is intrinsically quantum mechanical. Rece
ntly\, trapped ions\, following a laser-driven stroboscopic discrete time
evolution through a sequence of quantum gate operations\, have been used a
s a digital quantum \nsimulator for particle-anti-particle pair creation i
n the Schwinger model. \nAnalog quantum simulators\, on the other hand\, f
ollow the continuous time-evolution of a tunable model Hamiltonian. Using
ultra-cold atoms in optical lattices\, analog quantum simulators have been
designed for Abelian and non-Abelian lattice gauge theories. Their experi
mental realization is a challenge for the foreseeable future\, which holds
the promise to access the \nreal-time dynamics of string breaking\, the o
ut-of-equilibrium decay of a false vacuum\, or the evolution of a chiral c
ondensate after a quench\, from first principles. Quantum link models whic
h realize gauge theories including QCD not with classical fields but with
discrete quantum degrees of freedom\, are ideally \nsuited for implementat
ion in quantum matter. For example\, alkaline-earth atoms\, whose nuclear
spin represents an SU(N) degree of freedom\, naturally embody fermionic ri
shon constituents of gluons.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contrib

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Mari Carmen Banuls ()\nThe term Tensor Network State
s (TNS) has become a common one in the context of numerical studies of qua
ntum many-body problems. It refers to a number of families that represent
different ansatzes for the efficient description of the state of a quantum
many-body system. The first of these families\, Matrix Product States (MP
S)\, lies at the basis of Density Matrix Renormalization Group methods\, w
hich have become the most precise tool for the study of one dimensional qu
antum many-body systems. Their natural generalization to two or higher dim
ensions\, the Projected Entanglement Pair States (PEPS) are good candidate
s to describe the physics of higher dimensional lattices. Another TNS ansa
tz\, the MERA\, has recently been connected to a discrete realization of t
he AdS/CFT correspondence.\n\nTNS can be used to study equilibrium propert
ies\, as ground and and thermal states\, but also dynamics. Quantum inform
ation gives us some tools to understand why these families are expected to
be good ansatzes for the physically relevant states\, and some of the lim
itations connected to the simulation algorithms.\n\nLattice Gauge Theories
\, in their Hamiltonian version\, offer a challenging scenario for these t
echniques. While the dimensions and sizes of the systems amenable to TNS s
tudies are still far from those achievable by Monte Carlo simulations\, Te
nsor Networks can be readily used for problems which more standard techniq
ues cannot easily tackle\, such as the presence of a chemical potential\,
or out-of-equilibrium dynamics.\n\nThe last years have seen an increasing
interest in this particular application of Tensor Network techniques. The
performance of Matrix Product States (MPS) has been explored in the case o
f the Schwinger model\, as a widely used testbench for lattice techniques.
The low energy states of the model\, away from any perturbative regime\,
have been shown to be well approximated by the MPS ansatz. The precision a
chieved by the method allows for accurate finite size and continuum limit
extrapolations of the ground state energy\, but also of the mass gaps and
temperature dependent quantities\, thus showing the feasibility of these t
echniques for gauge theory problems. The feasibility of the method has alr
eady been tested also for non-Abelian models\, out-of-equilibrium scenario
s\, and non-vanishing chemical potential.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/

to model independently exclude high-scale leptogenesis scenarios when obse

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Maikel de Vries (JGU Mainz)\nThe coannihilation mech
anism plays a crucial role in determining the DM relic abundance in a plet
hora of new physics models. Recently\, a general classification of simplif
ied models for this mechanism has been presented in the Coannihilation cod
ex. In particular\, the thermal relic abundance of a pure Standard Model s
inglet DM candidate can naturally be explained by coannihilation with a ne
w colored partner in the dark sector. In these models direct and indirect
detection modes are suppressed\, however\, LHC probes provide striking sig
natures. On the one hand\, a mediator which connects the DM and its colore
d partner to the visible sector gives rise to a novel dijet resonance plus
missing transverse energy final state. In the case where the mediator lie
s beyond LHC detection\, self-annihilation of the colored partner through
its strong interactions solely determines the relic abundance. The major L
HC signature then is pair-production of the colored partner leading to jet
s plus missing transverse energy.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/co

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jochen Zahn (Universität Leipzig)\nIn the sense of
perturbation theory around arbitrary classical solutions\, the Nambu-Goto
(NG) string can be consistently quantised as an effective theory for any d
imension $D$ of the target space [Comm. Math. Phys. 327 (2014) 779\, with
D. Bahns & K. Rejzner]. In this framework\, we compute semi-classical corr
ections to the energy of rotating NG strings\, using the locally covariant
renormalisation scheme developed in the context of QFT on curved space-ti
mes by Hollands & Wald. For the open NG string\, we find that the energy d
ensity diverges in a non-integrable way at the boundaries. Regularizing th
ese divergences with boundary counterterms\, we find the Regge intercept $
a=1 + (D-2)/24$. For the closed NG string\, the energy density is finite a
nd yields the same intercept. For this value of $a$\, the NG string can no
t be quantised consistently in the covariant scheme for any dimension. [ba

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Marina Huerta ()\nA great part of the problem of und
erstanding the structure of the space of quantum field theories (QFT) is a
rguably reduced to the one of classifying possible critical points. In thi
s picture\, the theories with mass scales are obtained by perturbing criti
cal points and following the renormalization group (RG) trajectories. Howe
ver\, interestingly\, in the flow not all critical points can be joined wi
th each other: there are constraints provided by c-theorems. These state t
hat certain c-charge decreases from the UV to the IR fixed points showing
the irreversible character of the RG flow. \n\nThe idea of relating the c-
theorem with entanglement entropy is motivated by the result that central
charges can be identified as coefficients of entanglement entropy for even
dimensional space-time theories. In this scenario\, the coefficient of th
e logarithmic term and the constant term in the entropy were suggested as
c-functions\, for even and odd dimensional theories respectively. We will
discuss the d = 2 and 3 cases\, where this proposal was confirmed\n\nhttps

the recent calculation of the NLO QCD corrections to vector boson pair pro

the Higgs signal. In particular\, as it was shown by Caola and Melnikov\,
assessing the impact of the interference on the signal and background cro
ss sections in the high energy tail (i.e. for an off-shell Higgs) is cruci
al to put stringent constraints on the width of the Higgs. This\, in turn\
, is important to allow precise measurements of the Higgs couplings. Moreo
ver\, studying the interference at high invariant masses is very interesti
ng to confirm the EWSB mechanism\; the interference is\, in fact\, expecte
d to be strong and destructive\, as the Higgs boson is supposed to unitari
ze the scattering amplitudes of massive fermions and gauge bosons.\n\nhttp

the operator scaling dimensions and the sphere free energy for these Confo

is special in that the theory appears to flow to a CFT with emergent super
symmetry\, and we provide\nevidence for this using 4-epsilon expansions. W
e also discuss the O(N) symmetric scalar theory in dimensions between four
and six\, where it appears to be\nunitary to all orders in the 1/N expans

nt for N>1038. We conclude\nwith comments on continuation of this theory t

mpact field space of the relaxion. We propose an N-site model which natura
lly generates the large decay constant needed to address these issues. Our
model offers distinct advantages with respect to previous proposals: the
construction involves non-abelian fields\, allowing for controlled high en
ergy behaviour and more model building possibilities\, both in particle ph
ysics and inflationary models\, and also admits a continuum limit when the
number of sites is large\, which may be interpreted as a warped extra dim
ension.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/17562/

l connection relies on a recent realization of tree-level \nopen-superstri
ng S-matrix predictions as a double copy of super-Yang--Mills theory\nwith
Z-theory --- the collection of putative scalar effective field theories \
nencoding all the alpha'-dependence of the open superstring. \nHere we id
entify the color-ordered amplitudes of the NLSM as the low-energy\nlimit
of abelian Z-theory. This realization also provides\nnatural higher-deriv
ative corrections to the NLSM amplitudes arising from \nhigher powers of a
lpha' in the abelian Z-theory amplitudes\, and through double copy \nalso
to Born--Infeld and Volkov--Akulov theories. The Kleiss--Kuijf \nand Bern-
-Carrasco--Johansson relations obeyed by Z-theory amplitudes thereby \napp
ly to all alpha'-corrections of the NLSM. As such we naturally obtain \na
cubic-graph parameterization for the abelian Z-theory predictions \nwhose
kinematic numerators obey the duality between color and kinematics \nto al

tially large in this limit. We develop methods to study this regime and sh
ow that the amplitude necessarily coincides with the Veneziano amplitude t
here. Our analysis shows that any such theory of higher-spin particles has
stringy excitations and infinitely many asymptotically parallel subleadin

any theory with at least one higher-spin particle must have strings.\n\nht

by symmetry principles the integrands for their four-point functions can b

this approach and explain how the three-point couplings of two half-BPS an

functions. We present new results at four loops obtained by the technique
of asymptotic expansions. Second\, we discuss the calculation of the same

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Daniela Cadamuro (Universität Göttingen)\nIn the c
ontext of constructing interacting quantum field theories in the operator-
algebraic approach\, wedge-local fields play an important role. After the
work of Lechner to construct factorizing scattering matrix models with sca
lar S-matrices without bound states\, we recently extended this constructi
on to the Z(N)-Ising model and the A_N-1 affine Toda field theories\, name
ly models with a richer particle spectrum and which are believed to have b
ound states. This construction is done by exhibiting wedge-local fields wh
ich arise as a deformation of Lechner's fields with the so called ``bound
state operator''. In this talk I will review the passages of this construc
tion and explain the open problems.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/

for leptons.\nThe model is characterised by new heavy fermions which mix
with the Standard\nModel quarks and leptons. In particular\, the partners
for the third fermion\ngeneration induce sizeable sources of flavour viola

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Juraj Klarić (Technical University Munich)\nThe ext
ension of the Standard Model by heavy right-handed neutrinos can simultane
ously explain the observed neutrino masses via the seesaw mechanism and th
e baryon asymmetry of the Universe via leptogenesis. If the mass of the he
avy neutrinos is below the electroweak scale\, they may be found at LHCb\,
BELLE II\, the proposed SHiP experiment or a future high-energy collider.
In this mass range\, the baryon asymmetry is generated via CP-violating o
scillations of the heavy neutrinos during their production. We study the g
eneration of the baryon asymmetry of the Universe in this scenario from fi
rst principles of non-equilibrium quantum field theory\, including spectat
or processes and feedback effects. We eliminate several uncertainties from
previous calculations and find that the baryon asymmetry of the Universe
can be explained with larger heavy neutrino mixing angles\, increasing the
chance for an experimental discovery. For the limiting cases of fast and
strongly overdamped oscillations of right-handed neutrinos\, the generatio
n of the baryon asymmetry can be calculated analytically up to corrections
of order one.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/17579/

the next few years cosmological structure formation will be probed in grea

UCLID and LSST.\nWhile this opens great possibilities for probing for exam
ple dark energy and the mass of neutrinos\, it also puts very stringent re

as the matter power spectrum. In this regard\, the treatment of massive ne
utrinos is particularly challenging both in N-body simulations and in line
ar theory Boltzmann codes.\nIn this talk I will present a new approximatio
n to the third moment of the Boltzmann hierarchy and demonstrate that with
this new approximation the neutrino power spectrum can be calculated with
a precision of a few percent.\nThen I will discuss an extremely efficient
way of calculating the neutrino power spectrum in the regime of non-linea

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: René Sondenheimer (TPI FSU Jena)\nWe investigate no
nperturbative renormalization group flows of various Higgs-Yukawa models
mimicking the Higgs sector of the standard model. We reanalyze the convent
ional arguments that relate a lower bound for the Higgs mass with vacuum s
tability in the framework of the functional renormalization group as well
as in the light of exact results for the regularized fermion determinant.
In both cases\, we find no indication for vacuum instability nor metastabi
lity induced by top fluctuations if the cutoff is kept finite but arbitrar
y for standard bare actions which are perturbatively renormalizable.\nFor
the class of standard bare potentials of quartic type at a given ultraviol
et cutoff scale\, we show that a finite infrared Higgs mass range emerges
naturally from the RG flow itself. Higgs masses outside the resulting boun
ds cannot be connected to any conceivable set of bare parameters in this s
tandard model quartic class. A lower bound for the Higgs mass arises from
the requirement of a well-defined partition function\, i.e.\, stability of
the bare potential. This consistency bound can\, however\, be relaxed con
siderably by more general forms of the bare potential without necessarily
introducing new metastable minima. We identify a simple renormalization gr
oup mechanism for this diminishing of the lower bound. Thus\, Higgs masses
smaller than the conventional infrared window do not necessarily require
new physics at low scales or give rise to instability problems.\n\nhttps:/

alization group equation for composite operators.\nThe resulting constrain
ts allow to reconstruct full evolution kernels in physical (integer) dimen
sions from their eigenvalues (anomalous dimensions) and the calculation of
the conformal anomaly at one order less in a perturbative expansion.\n\nW
e use this technique to derive three-loop\, i.e. NNLO\, evolution equation
s for flavor-nonsinglet quark-antiquark light-ray operators that encode th

supermultiplets of F(4) which extend the Romans multiplet to higher spins
plus a single short supermultiplet.\nMotivated by applications to this no

tests are successfully passed\, the Type-B theory in all even dimensional
anti-de Sitter spacetimes presents an interesting puzzle: the free energy

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Wolfgang Gregor Hollik (DESY)\nThe discovery of the
Higgs boson puts a severe constraint on the available parameter space in a
ny SUSY model. In the MSSM\, a 125 GeV Higgs together with relatively ligh
t stops needs a very large stop mixing\, therefore large trilinear terms i
n the scalar potential. Those are known to destabilize the electroweak gro
und state and induce a true vacuum in association with squark vevs. Previo
us analyses of vacuum stability in the MSSM usually follow rather arbitrar
y constraints in the field space configuration. Relaxing the bounds on fie
ld alignment\, we find distinct excluded regions and constrain the allowed
parameters even further by imposing the correct light Higgs mass. As resu
lt\, generically squark masses in the multi TeV regime are needed to avoid
an unstable vacuum - a result with agrees with the observation of no hint
s of SUSY so far.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/1759

nts that can be drawn. \nFirst\, I will show that angular momentum conside
rations determine to a large extend the spectral features arising in dark
matter annihilations into intermediary particles which subsequently produ

ra generated by dark matter annihilating into hypothetical diphoton resona
nces. \nIf time allows\, I will then discuss a systematic classification
of the one-loop diagrams leading to dark matter annihilations into photon
lines in an arbitrary model. I will argue that such classification can be

In this paper\, we study the potential of searching for such stop particl

ates 2l+met and 1b1l+met. We found that\, if the lightest sbottom has ma
ss around or below 1 TeV and has a significant branching ratio to decay to
stop and W\, which are favored by naturalness and Higgs mass\, a stop alm
ost degenerate with neutralino can be excluded up to about 500--600 GeV at
the 13 TeV LHC with 300 fb^-1 data. The searches we propose are compleme

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Irene Valenzuela (MPI\, Munich)\nAxion monodromy is
a promising proposal to achieve a transplanckian field range for an axion
in string theory. These models are better described in terms of a Minkowsk
i 3-form field which couples linearly to the axion\, in the Kaloper-Sorbo
fashion. We highlight the differences between this simple effective theory
and the structure actually obtained from string theory. We show that all
the RR and NS axion dependence of the flux Type II scalar potential appear
s through the said 3-forms. However\, the presence of multiple 3-forms and
the mixing with other (non-axionic) moduli makes necessary to revisit the
arguments regarding perturbative control and backreaction\, which indeed
might reduce the effective field range. We also show the constraints on th
e field range coming from the Weak Gravity Conjecture when applied to thes
e 3-forms\, and the implications for large field inflation and the relaxio
n proposal to the EW hierarchy problem.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Cora Uhlemann (Utrecht University)\nWe investigate t
he formation of a dark matter halo using an idea that is rooted in the cor
respondence between phase space distributions in classical and quantum mec
hanics. The dynamics of cold dark matter is governed by the Vlasov (or co
llisionless Boltzmann) equation whose nonlinearity is induced by gravity a
ccording to the Poisson equation. Determining the evolution of density and
velocity demands solving a coupled hierarchy for the cumulants of the dis
tribution function In the presence of long-range interaction\, no consiste
nt truncation is known apart from the pressureless fluid model which is in
capable of describing halo formation due to the inability to generate high
er cumulants dynamically. We introduce the Schrödinger method where dark
matter is modeled as self-gravitating scalar field solving the Schröding
er-Poisson equation. Using the phase space formulation of quantum mechanic
s\, we construct a distribution function that approximately solves the Vla
sov-Poisson equation without truncation. We demonstrate that the Schrödin
ger method is capable of emulating the dynamics of halo formation while co
ntaining only two degrees of freedom\, just like the pressureless fluid mo
del. Based on this\, we discuss how the Schrödinger method can guide furt
her modeling based on solutions with finitely generated rather than finite
ly many cumulants.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contributions/176

multi-wavelength synergies between gamma-ray experiments and optical/near-

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Iason Baldes (DESY)\nIf the Standard Model Yukawa co
uplings varied in the early universe and started with order one values bef
ore electroweak symmetry breaking\, the CP violation associated with the C
KM matrix could be the origin of the matter-antimatter asymmetry. The larg
e effective Yukawa couplings which lead to the enhanced CP violation can a
lso help in achieving a strong first-order electroweak phase transition. I
n this talk\, I will discuss the implementation of dynamical Yukawa coupli
ngs in the context of the Froggatt--Nielsen mechanism.\n\nhttps://indico.d

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Nico Wintergerst (Stockholm University)\nBlack holes
possess a wide range of rather peculiar properties\, many of them in conn
ection with their ability to process\, store and release information. I ex
plore the possibility that the physical origin of these properties is quan
tum criticality. To this end\, I will demonstrate that simple Bose condens
ates exhibit a plethora of black hole like properties. This includes trapp
ing\, baldness\, evaporation\, entropy\, scrambling and the breakdown of s
emiclassical physics and allows for the exciting possibility to test black
hole information processing in labs. It can also serve as a powerful guid
eline to a quantum field theoretical understanding of black holes.\n\nhttp

SUMMARY:Rigid Superconformal Field Theories in three dimensions

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Aswin Balasubramanian (DESY and Univ of Hamburg)\nI'
ll talk about my work with J. Distler (to appear) in which we study a clas
s of 3d N=4 superconformal field theories and their mass deformations. We
perform this study by establishing a relation between the geometry of the
vacuum moduli spaces of these theories and (a refined version of) the ``Th
eory of sheets" which is an important subject in Geometric Representation
Theory. This realizes in a precise way an earlier proposal of Chacaltana-
Distler-Tachikawa about such a relationship. These three dimensional theo
ries are related to the codimension two (or four dimensional) defects of t
he six dimensional (0\,2) theory of type A\,D\,E (sometimes called theory
X[j]) by dimensional reduction. Understanding the mass deformations of the
se three dimensional theories is the first step in understanding the mass
deformations of a general class S theory. One of the surprises that arise
in our study is the existence of Rigid N=4 SCFTs in three dimensions. Thes
e are non-trivial SCFTs that do not admit an ordinary mass deformation. I'
ll describe the Coulomb and Higgs branches of Rigid SCFTs and the implicat
ions of their existence for the study of mass deformations.\n\nhttps://ind

SUMMARY:Metastability\, Chaotic Inflation\, and Primordial Black Holes

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Kyohei Mukaida (Kavli IPMU)\nWe revisit the compatib
ility between chaotic inflation\, which provides a natural solution to the
initial condition problem\, and the metastable electroweak vacuum\, which
is suggested by the results of the LHC and the current mass measurements
of top quark and Higgs boson. It is known that chaotic inflation poses a t
hreat to the stability of the electroweak vacuum because it easily generat
es large Higgs fluctuations during inflation or preheating and triggers th
e catastrophic vacuum decay. In this talk\, we would like to explain a sim
ple cosmological solution in which the vacuum is stabilized during chaotic
inflation\, preheating and afterwards. This simple solution naturally pre
dicts formation of primordial black holes. We find interesting parameter r
egions where the present dark matter density is provided by them. Gravitat
ional waves could be used as an interesting probe. Also\, the thermal lept
ogensis can be accommodated in our scenario.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/eve

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Jacek Wosiek (Jagellonian University)\nA positive re
presentation for an arbitrary complex\, gaussian weight is derived and use
d to construct a statistical formulation of gaussian path integrals direct
ly in the Minkowski time. The positivity of Minkowski weights is achieved
by doubling the number of real variables. The continuum limit of the new r
epresentation exists only if some of the additional couplings tend to infi
nity and are tuned in a specific way. The construction is then successfull
y applied to three quantum mechanical examples including a particle in a c
onstant magnetic field -- a simplest prototype of a Wilson line. Further g
eneralizations are shortly discussed and an intriguing interpretation of n
ew variables is alluded to.\n\nhttps://indico.desy.de/event/14795/contribu
