The Compact Binary Census after LIGO/Virgo's Second Observing Run | Prof. Ben Farr, PhD (University of Oregon, Eugene) | Thursday, October 18, 2018 - 15:30 | Presentation at 3:45 PM, NPL 178 Coffee and cookies starting at 3:30 PM | |

With 5.9 binary black hole mergers and 1 binary neutron star merger announced so far, the Advanced LIGO and Virgo detectors have started their census of the local(ish) compact binary population. With detection rates as high as one per week in the next observing run, and one per day in the coming years, we will quickly accumulate the statistics necessary to constrain the physics relevant to binary formation. I will present some the techniques being developed to make these inferences, what we have learned so far, and what we might learn in the near future. |

Hadronic corrections to the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon | Dr. Peter Stoffer, University of California, San Diego | Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 02:30 | INT Conference room C421 | |

The anomalous magnetic moment of the muon g-2 has been measured and computed to very high precision of about 0.5 ppm. For more than a decade, a discrepancy has persisted between experiment and Standard Model prediction, now of about 3-4 sigma. The main uncertainty of the theory prediction is due to strong-interaction effects, the hadronic vacuum polarisation (HVP) and hadronic light-by-light (HLbL) contributions. While the most precise HVP evaluation is based on dispersion relations and data input, HLbL is currently plagued by uncontrolled model uncertainties. Within a dispersive framework based on unitarity and analyticity, we scrutinize the uncertainty estimates for the two-pion HVP channel and we calculate model-independently two-pion contributions in HLbL, which shows an avenue towards a data-driven evaluation of g-2 of the muon. |
