We provide analytical arguments showing that the non-perturbative approximation scheme to Wilson's renormalisation group known as the derivative expansion has a finite radius of convergence. We also provide guidelines for choosing the regulator function at the heart of the procedure and propose empirical rules for selecting an optimal one, without ...

Two-dimensional CFTs and integrable models have an infinite set of conserved KdV higher spin currents. These currents can be argued to remain conserved under the $T\bar{T}$ deformation and its generalizations. We determine the flow equations the KdV charges obey under the $T\bar{T}$ deformation: they behave as probes "riding the Burgers flow" of th...

The Landau-Khalatnikov-Fradkin (LKF) transformation is a powerful and elegant transformation allowing to study the gauge dependence of the propagator of charged particles interacting with gauge fields. With the help of this transformation, we derive a non-perturbative identity between massless propagators in two different gauges. From this identity...

We investigate possible signatures of quantum gravity which could be tested with current and future gravitational-wave (GW) observations. In particular, we analyze how quantum gravity can influence the GW luminosity distance, the time dependence of the effective Planck mass and the instrumental strain noise of interferometers. Using both model-depe...

We construct an infinite system of non-linear duality equations, including fermions, that are invariant under global E11 and gauge invariant under generalised diffeomorphisms upon the imposition of a suitable section constraint. We use finite-dimensional fermionic representations of the R-symmetry E11 to describe the fermionic contributions to the ...

We study linear perturbations of a rotating black hole solution that has been recently discovered in degenerate higher-order scalar-tensor (DHOST) theories. We find a parametrization which permits the explicit resolution of the scalar perturbation while the tensor perturbation is obtained as a Teukolsky equation supplemented by an effective source ...

We consider structure constants of single-trace operators at strong coupling in planar $\mathcal{N}=4$ SYM theory using the hexagon formalism. We concentrate on heavy-heavy-light correlators where the heavy operators are BMN operators, with large R-charges and finite anomalous dimensions, and the light one is a finite-charge chiral primary operator...

We show that the recent proposal to describe the $N_f=1$ baryon in the large number of color limit as a quantum Hall droplet, can be understood as a chiral bag in a 1+2 dimensional strip using the Cheshire cat principle. For a small bag radius, the bag reduces to a vortex line which is the smile of the cat with flowing gapless quarks all spinning i...

We explore the impact of strong gravitational fields on neutrino decoherence. To this aim, we employ the density matrix formalism to describe the propagation of neutrino wave packets in curved spacetime. By considering Gaussian wave packets, we determine the coherence proper time, neglecting the effect of matter outside the compact object. We show ...

We study spherically symmetric solutions in a four-parameter Einstein-Cartan-type class of theories. These theories include torsion, as well as the metric, as dynamical fields, and contain only two physical excitations (around flat spacetime): a massless spin-2 excitation and a massive spin-2 one (of mass $ m_2 \equiv \kappa$). They offer a geometr...
