EPFL/CERN/UNIGE Discussion Sessions

Wednesday, 29 January 2014 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-2-011 - TH common room )
Description To prompt collaboration among the different groups in cosmology in the Léman area, we hold a common discussion session every month and a half. In those, recent news in the field are addressed by experts at a level that we can all understand. Please, suggest papers/subjects to the local organizers. The papers to discuss are:
i) Quantum corrections in Higgs inflation: the real scalar case http://arxiv.org/abs/1310.2157
ii) Are peculiar velocity surveys competitive as a cosmological probe?http://arxiv.org/pdf/1312.1022.pdf
iii) Exclusion of the remaining mass window for primordial black holes as the dominant constituent of dark matter
http://arxiv.org/pdf/1401.3025.pdf
