Currently ongoing, interesting work

We will begin with a 15 minute social time, during which you will be dropped into small breakout rooms. Discuss what you want with your CCPP colleagues and get to better know them. Hogg will then talk about something for 20 minutes, presumably to do with astrophysics, astronomy, physics, astrophysical science, data science, computer science, computation, computational science, or a related topic, based on what he is doing right now.

QCD and Baryogenesis [REMOTE TALK]

Generally we do not think about QCD when we try to explain the matter--antimatter asymmetry of the universe. I will describe a small modification to the SM which drastically changes the QCD confinement in the early universe. In this model the strong coupling constant is a dynamical quantity which depends on the vacuum expectation value of a new scalar field. In this history of our Universe the QCD confines through a first-order phase transition at a temperature of T ~ O100 GeV, when sphalerons are still active. Large CP violation can also exist in the strong sector — which is then cancelled by the QCD axion. I will explain this baryogenesis scenario and the rich set of phase transitions in the model.

Testing General Relativity with Black Hole Mergers

Testing the predictions of general relativity in the dynamical strong-field regime, in particular black holes and their dynamics, has only recently become possible with LIGO/Virgo observations of black hole mergers. I will review some of the tests that have been performed to date. However, one obstacle to extracting the most stringent constraints possible is the lack of predictions of what the coalescence phase of black hole mergers should "sound“ like in modified gravity theories (or theories that claim exotic alternatives to black holes). To make things worse, there are doubts as to how well-posed modified gravity theories are that could offer merger dynamics sufficiently different from general relativity to be within reach of current generation detectors. One such theory is Einstein-dilaton-Gauss-Bonnet (EdGB) gravity. I will describe early results trying to address the well-posedness of EdGB gravity in the non-linear regime. Restricting to gravitational collapse in spherical symmetry, we find that there is an uncomfortably small region of parameter space where EdGB gravity might yet serve as a tool to improve our knowledge of how well strong-field gravity is described by general relativity in nature.

Personal Reflections on Two Success Stories

I will share some personal thoughts prompted by two remarkable success stories in physics: i) the standard model of particle physics; ii) the standard model of gravitation and cosmology. In spite of their phenomenological successes both models suggest that the way we are presently dealing with short-distance physics may need some deep revision.
