Graduate Seminar, 23rd April

Speaker: Katarzyna Frankiewicz Title: Search for dark matter induced neutrinos with the Super-Kamiokande detector . Abstract: Indirect searches for dark matter are performed based on atmospheric neutrino data collected with the Super-Kamiokande (SK) detector in years 1996-2016. The excess of neutrinos from possible dark matter sources such as Earth and Galactic Center, compared to the expected …

Graduate Seminar, 12th March

Speaker:  Chetan Bavdhankar Title: Our velocity and acceleration in the Universe are in the same direction! (Local Group Motion using Supernova type Ia) Abstract: Supernova type Ia (SN Ia) are one of the accurate distance indicators which are used to measure the distances to distant galaxies. Using the redshift of the galaxy and it’s distance (estimated …

Graduate Seminar, 26th February

Speaker: Szymon Nakoneczny Title: Natural language processing methods in biological activity prediction and quasar detection in large scale photometric surveys. Abstract: The first part will focus on my master ‘s thesis. Virtual screening is a process in which databases of chemical compounds are searched in order to f ind structures characterized with a high biological activity, …

Graduate Seminar, 23rd October

Speaker: Oleksandr Kovalenko Title: “Chiral magnetic effect in nucleus-nucleus collisions at LHC energies”. Abstract: The chiral magnetic effect (charge separation in strong magnetic field) is of great importance for QCD studies as it is a direct consequence of parity violation. Main observables and collision parameters that are used in ultra relativistic heavy ion physics will …

Graduate Seminar, 16th October

Speaker: Erik Kofoed Title: Chiral Perturbation Theory for Neutron-antineutron Oscillations Abstract: Neutron-antineutron oscillations is a possible consequence of baryon number violating physics. Transition matrix elements for oscillations can be calculated numerically, up to an overall scale, with lattice simulations. Such simulations contain artefacts such as choice of unphysical pion masses and finite volume effects. In order …

Graduate Seminar, 9th October

Speaker:  Artem Poliszczuk Title: Fuzzy support vector machine application to data mining in sky surveys. Abstract: The first application of the fuzzy support vector machine (FSVM) algorithm as the automated classification tool for astronomical catalogs will be presented. This new approach allows to perform a more trustable classification of astronomical sources by making use of …
