Abstract: An accurate measurement of the Hubble constant, H0, is critical for the determination of all other cosmological parameters. The most recent determinations have revealed a >4σ discrepancy between the local value of H0, based on the distance ladder approach with Cepheid stars and type Ia supernovae, and the determination from the cosmic microwave background. If this holds up, then Lambda-CDM is not the complete model of the Universe. Any independent effort to better constrain this parameter…

Abstract: Abstract: I will review the computation of the gravitational potential from scattering amplitudes and unitarity. I will also explain how to compute directly observable quantities such as the scattering angle for light or for gravitons passing by a heavy mass (such as a black hole). After this introduction, I will show how to extend our considerations to incorporate higher-derivative corrections to the Einstein-Hilbert theory, in the framework of effective field theories. In the second…
