High Energy Physics

High energy physics involves the study of the fundamental building blocks of nature at the shortest distances. These are the fundamental particles that are described by quantum fields such as the Higgs field found at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Our group studies theories beyond the Standard Model of particle physics both from theoretical and phenomenological perspectives.

Workshop in honour of Yves Brihaye

A two days workshop "Exact solutions in classical field theory: Solitons, black holes and bosons stars", that will take place on 2-3 June will honour the work of Yves Brihaye, former head of the Research Unit of Theoretical and Mathematical Physics and currently Professor Emeritus in the Unit Physics of the Univers,  Fields and Gravitation. As long time collaborators, E. Radu and C. Herdeiro are two of the invited speakers of the workshop.

Evolving black hole with scalar field accretion

I will present recent results on evolving black holes in general relativity. Approximate analytical solutions are obtained by expanding the Einstein field equations close to the trapping horizon for a dynamical spherically symmetric black hole in the presence of a minimally coupled self-interacting scalar field.
