If you were to visit, and click on “About CERN” you would find the following text. It is written so well that there would be no point in re-expressing the same idea. So here it is: Continue reading “About CERN”

My Master’s Thesis: Barium Fluoride from Earth to Space!

Hello everyone,

this is Alessia again. Today I would like to tell you more about my past work, and in particular about my Master’s Thesis.

The idea behind it is simple but incredibly ingenious at the same time. Continue reading “My Master’s Thesis: Barium Fluoride from Earth to Space!”

Getting Ready To The 750 GeV Diphoton Bump

As most of you already know, today at 3PM two back-to-back talks by Jim Olsen (CMS) and Marumi Kado (ATLAS) at CERN will disclose the latest results of physics analyses performed on 13 TeV proton-proton collisions recorded this year by the two experiments. Continue reading “Getting Ready To The 750 GeV Diphoton Bump”

ESR 1 : Who I am

Hi there! I’m Pablo de Castro, the AMVA4NewPhysics’ Early Stage Researcher, or ESR, at the INFN – Sezione di Padova. In this blog post, the first of many in the following three years,  I would like to tell you a bit about myself and the stuff I’ve done before joining this exciting project. I opted for a non-standard way to present myself, I hope you like it and/or give me some feedback! Continue reading “ESR 1 : Who I am”

Travelling the world of particle physics

Hello everyone,

my name is Alessia Saggio and I’m very pleased to be the selected PhD student of the AMVA4NewPhysics network at Université Catholique de Louvain. I studied at the University of Catania (Italy) where I took the Bachelor’s degree in Physics in November 2013 and a Master’s degree in Particle Physics in October 2015. Continue reading “Travelling the world of particle physics”

Correct-Coverage Unfolding

Yesterday Mikael Kuusela gave a well-attended seminar at the Department of Statistical Sciences of the University of Padova. Mikael is a member of the AMVA4NewPhysics network and is about to obtain his doctorate in Statistics at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) under the advisory of Victor Panaretos. Continue reading “Correct-Coverage Unfolding”

AMVA4NewPhysics Post 0

This is the first post of the blog “AMVA4NewPhysics”, and as goes with all “post 0” articles, it is not supposed to offer much content. Nevertheless, let me have a shot at that. My name is Tommaso Dorigo and I am the coordinator of the network. My goal for today is to explain who we are, what we do, and what kind of articles we wish to publish here in the next four years.
