Mathematical and Theoretical Physics Seminar: "Soft particles in Effective Field Theories"

Speaker Henriette Elvang, University of Michigan
Date: 9/21/2017
Time: 12:30 p.m.

276 Loomis


Physics and Mathematics

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

I will discuss the approach to study quantum field theories using the soft limits of massless particles. In particular, I will present modifications to classic soft theorems for photons and gravitons that arise from higher-dimension operators in effective field theories; these can be interpreted as the corrections from loops of massive particles. Finally I will discuss on-going work on using soft limits to examine the landscape of effective field theories with enhanced symmetry.
