We derive the Casimir-Polder force and Casimir torque expressions for an anisotropic molecule close to a conducting plane with a tensorial conductivity. We apply our general expressions to the case of a carbon dioxide CO$_2$ molecule close to a plane with pure Hall conductivity and to graphene. We show that the equilibrium position of this linear m...

We present a composite scotogenic model for neutrino masses, which are generated via loops of $\mathbb{Z}_2$-odd composite scalars. We considered three different approaches to the couplings of the neutrinos (including three right-handed singlets) and the composite sector: ETC-like four-fermion interactions, fundamental partial compositeness and fer...

A non-perturbative determination of the energy-momentum tensor is essential for understanding the physics of strongly coupled systems. The ability of the Wilson Flow to eliminate divergent contact terms makes it a practical method for renormalising the energy-momentum tensor on the lattice. In this paper, we utilise the Wilson Flow to define a proc...

We derive the static Schwarzschild-Tangherlini metric by extracting the classical contributions from the multi-loop vertex functions of a graviton emitted from a massive scalar field. At each loop orders the classical contribution is proportional to a unique master integral given by the massless sunset integral. By computing the scattering amplitud...

This paper models the dynamics of a large set of interacting neurons within the framework of statistical field theory. We use a method initially developed in the context of statistical field theory [44] and later adapted to complex systems in interaction [45][46]. Our model keeps track of individual interacting neurons dynamics but also preserves s...

We show that light scalars can form quasi-bound states around binaries. In the non-relativistic regime, these states are formally described by the quantum-mechanical Schrodinger equation for a one-electron heteronuclear diatomic molecule. We performed extensive numerical simulations of scalar fields around black hole binaries showing that a scalar ...

The spectrum of conformal weights for the CFT describing the two-dimensional critical Q-state Potts model (or its close cousin, the dense loop model) has been known for more than 30 years [1]. However, the exact nature of the corresponding Vir ⊗ Vir¯\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepa...

We extend the SU(3) (Polyakov) Nambu Jona-Lasinio in two ways: We introduce the next to leading order contribution (in $N_c$) in the partition function. This contribution contains explicit mesonic terms. We introduce a coupling between the gluon field and the quark degrees of freedom which goes beyond a simple rescaling of the critical temperature....

Using the CGC effective theory together with the hybrid factorisation, we study forward dijet production in proton-nucleus collisions beyond leading order. In this paper, we compute the "real" next-to-leading order (NLO) corrections, i.e. the radiative corrections associated with a three-parton final state, out of which only two are being measured....

With one exception, all known non-supersymmetric AdS4 and AdS5 vacua of gauged maximal supergravities that descend from string and M theory have been shown to have modes with mass below the BF bound. The remaining non-supersymmetric AdS solution is perturbatively stable within gauged maximal supergravity, and hence appears to contradict recent conj...
