SFB Colloquium

Aleksi Vuorinen (Helsinki Institute of Physics)
Dense QCD matter from first principles

Neutron stars, currently probed using both electromagnetic and gravitational wave observations, contain some of the densest matter in the known universe, possibly including even deconfined quark matter. In my talk, I will describe recent efforts to understand the collective properties of high-density quark matter, using both resummed perturbation theory and the holographic AdS/CFT duality. Prospects for quantitatively constraining the observable properties of neutron stars using these results will also be discussed in detail.

Jacopo Ghiglieri (CERN)
Sterile neutrino production in the early universe

The addition of sterile, massive right-handed neutrinos to the Standard Model represents an economical extension with the potential of accounting for three SM shortcomings: the active (left-handed) neutrino masses and oscillations, the matter-antimatter imbalance of the universe and the nature of Dark Matter. I will start by introducing the model and reviewing the basics of the mechanisms responsible for masses, baryogenesis and DM, i.e. see-saw, leptogenesis and resonant production of keV-scale right-handed neutrinos respectively. I will then concentrate on two related ingredients for computations of leptogenesis and or/dark matter: the right-handed neutrino production rate and the lepton asymmetry washout rate, and show how they can be computed, extending to early universe cosmology techniques devised for the QCD plasma in heavy ion physics.
