Our group hosts several different weekly activities. We have a series of regular seminars on Wednesdays at 15:00 in Room S named High Energy Theory Seminars (orange in the calendar), replaced by Theory Colloquia (yellow) once per month.
We also have informal discussions on Tuesdays in Room R, alternating between the Pheno-Coffee (pink) and the Theory-lunch (green).

If you have iCal, you can have our seminars added automatically to your calendars by subscribing (⌥⌘S) to the address http://active.pd.infn.it/g4/jccal.php.

Analytical tools and results in binary coalescence GW detection
Abstract
In the first part I will talk about the gravitational wave signals generated during a binary inspiral and coalescence, with particular reference to the recent LIGO detections and with focus on the data analysis of the inspiraling phase. Then I will move into a more theoretical territory, describing the analytical methods which are currently used to obtain high-precision predictions and templates for the gravitational waveform.

A Solitonic Approach to Holographic Nuclear Physics
Abstract
We discuss nuclear physics in the Sakai-Sugimoto model in the limit of large number Nc of colors and large 't Hooft coupling λ. In this limit the individual baryons are described by classical solitons whose size is much smaller than the typical distance at which they settle in a nuclear bound state. We can thus use the linear approximation outside the instanton cores to compute the interaction potential. We find the classical geometry of nuclear bound states for baryon number up to eight. One of the interesting features that we find is that holographic nuclear physics provides a natural description for lightly bound states when λ is large. For the case of two nuclei, we also find the topology and metric of the manifold of zero modes and, quantizing it, we find that the ground state can be identified with the deuteron state. We discuss the relations with other methods in the literature used to study Skyrmions and holographic nuclear physics. We discuss also the peculiar limit of "small" 't Hooft coupling and its relation with the generalized Skyrme model.
