Abstract: Cosmology is famously an observational rather than an experimental science. No experimentalists were present in the early universe, and the birth and subsequent evolution of the universe cannot be repeated. Instead, we can only measure the spatial correlations between cosmological structures at late times. A central challenge of modern cosmology is to construct a consistent “history" of the universe that explains these correlations. In the last few years, a new bootstrap approach was developed…

Abstract: The QCD axion and axion-like particles are among the most well-motivated and sought-after physics beyond the Standard Model. This is a consequence of the fact that they appear copiously in high-energy theories  and can resolve some major outstanding problems in modern particle physics (including the strong CP problem and dark matter). In this talk I will show that the magnetospheres of neutron stars, hosting large magnetic fields and a dilute inhomogeneous plasma, offer incredibly powerful…
Abstract: Presenter: Christian Haack, TUM Title: Machine-learning based detector optimization of the future P-ONE neutrino telescope Abstract: P-ONE is a planned cubic-kilometer scale neutrino detector in the Pacific ocean [1, 2]. Using existing infrastructure provided by Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), P-ONE will instrument the ocean with optical modules - which host PMT's as well as readout electronics - deployed on several vertical cables. While the hardware design of a first prototype cable [3] is…
Abstract: Dwarf galaxies, such as those orbiting the Milky Way, are believed to be excellent testbeds in which to study dark matter. Their internal kinematics indicate that these are amongst the most dark matter-dominated objects in the Universe. Their relative proximity allows the collection of high-quality spectroscopic, photometric and proper motion data. These data contain crucial information on the inner structure of halos, which sets an important constraint on the particle physics properties of dark…

Abstract: The Origins Data Science Lab (ODSL) is organizing two block courses on data science topics. The courses, as well as the tutorials, will take place online. The tutorials will be organised through breakout rooms, each assigned to a tutor. The block courses follow the schedule: TBD Lecture: Monday-Wednesday 14:00-17:00 Tutorial: Tuesday-Thursday 9:00-12:00 The course itself, as well as one tutorial will be recorded, the other tutorials not. If you have any objections to this,…

Abstract: This workshop is included in the activities of the working package WP25 (Light- and heavy-quark hadron spectroscopy) of the project STRONG-2020. It has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824093. This workshop is intended as a an opportunity for the different groups working within the STRONG2020 project to share and report results. It is focused in particular on the experimental and theoretical aspects of hadron…
