PANIC2020 - Particles and Nuclei International Conference

New date: 30 August - 03 September 2021.

This conference is the 22nd in the series of triennial conferences which bring together the Particle and Nuclear Physics communities.

PANIC2020 consists of plenary talks and a number of parallel sessions. The scientific programme addresses a broad range of topics at the interface between particle, nuclear and astrophysics. Special emphasis will be devoted to recent discoveries and results. 

Riemannian geometry on mapping spaces and relations to shape analysis and fluid dynamics

Por Philipp Harms (FREIS, Univ. Freiburg).

Abstract: Fluid dynamics and shape analysis are linked by a common underlying geometric structure, namely, Sobolev-type Riemannian metrics on manifolds of mappings. I will characterize the degeneracy and non-degeneracy of the corresponding geodesic distances, establish local well-posedness of the corresponding geodesic equations, and discuss applications of these results to shape analysis and fluid dynamics.

Lepton Flavor Universality tests with semileptonic b-hadron decays

Por Antonio Romero Vidal (USC).

Lepton flavour universality is a key feature in the Standard Model. Currently, several measurements in b-hadron decays show some tension with respect to theoretical predictions. In this talk, I will summarize the experimental situation with special emphasis in measurements performed by LHCb with semileptonic b-hadron decays.
