Graduate Seminar, 1st October 2018

Speaker:  Krzysztof Jodłowski Title: R(D) (R(D*)) anomaly in B(B*)\to D\tau\nu decay vs 1-loop leptonic corrections in MSSM Abstract: Quotient of branching ratios for different final lepton states – R(D) (R(D*)) – measured by LHCb, Belle and BaBar, deviates from predictions of Standard Model by \sim 2\sigma (4\sigma). One loop corrections in leptonic sector were calculated in …

Thesis topic: Dose Distribution Analysis and Optimisation for Stereotactic Irradiation with a Linear Accelerator

The objective of this work is to perform verification of dose distributions calculated with a treatment planning system (TPS), which will provide the basis for creation of a comprehensive test of TPS for stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT). Monte Carlo (MC) techniques should be used to model the accelerator and to calculate the dose distribution in the …

Change of application deadline

Due to formal reasons the deadline for the first round of applications for Ph.D. studies in the framework of the “New reactor concepts and safety analyses for the Polish Nuclear Energy Program” has been extended to 28th June 2018, 17.00 CET.

Graduate Seminar, 4th June

Speaker: Viktor Svensson Title: Tensor Network techniques for many-body systems Abstract: In quantum many-body systems of even moderate sizes, Hilbert space is far too large to fit on a computer. This makes numerical calculations a challenge. With the use of tensor networks, certain classes of quantum states can be efficiently represented and computed. In this …

Ph.D. studentships in new reactor technologies

The National Center for Nuclear Research invites candidates for a 5-year doctoral studies in reactor physics within the framework of the project “New reactor concepts and safety analyses for the Polish Nuclear Energy Program” POWR.03.02.00-00.I005/17-02.

Graduate Seminar, 28th May

Speaker:  Oleksandr Kovalenko Title: Experimental tests of perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics Abstract:  The Deep Inelastic Scattering and Drell-Yan processes can’t be directly calculated. The factorization concept assumes that the cross sections of these processes can be expressed as a convolution of parton distribution functions and fragmentation functions (FFs). These functions can’t be obtained from the theory and …

Speaker: Erik Kofoed Title:  Asymptotic Freedom at Finite Temperatures and Densities Abstract: It is well known fact that the strong coupling constant in quantum chromodynamics (QCD) becomes weak at high energies which allows for perturbative calculations using Feynman diagrams. This is the phenomenon of asymptotic freedom. Much less clear is the status of asymptotic freedom at …

Graduate Seminar, 14th May

Speaker: Artem Poliszczuk Title: Searching for AGNs in the infrared data Abstract: In the era of big data driven astronomy creating trustable catalogs of astronomical objects plays crucial role in observational cosmology. In particular, Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN) catalogs still cause many difficulties for the observers. In my presentation I will briefly discuss the general …
