The Effective Theories in Modern Physics Group is a research group in Theoretical Physics hosted at Complutense University of Madrid, which gathers people from the Theoretical Physics Departments I & II.
Project structure: Two coordinated subprojects corresponding to two departments Theoretical Physics I and II at the UCM Justification for subprojects: The increasing number of participants, belonging to two different departments, complicates the administration of a single project inside our university. The second subproject will increase the influence of our line of research within the Department of Theoretical Physics II regarding university funding, postdocs, tenure track-positions, space, master and PhD teaching programs, etc… Justification for coordination: The history and many common scientific goals, suggest that a coordinated project will optimize common expenses and use of equipment, while maintaining the many interdepartmental collaborations: networks, organization of seminars, conferences and workshops, teaching inside our new master program, thus profiting from the synergies established so far.

Proposal:“Effective Theories for Particle Physics and Cosmology” a) Theoretical studies of proton and heavy ion collisions with applications to the LHC. b) Spectroscopy and hadronic structure. c) High Energy processes beyond the standard model. d) Particle physics in extreme conditions (astrophysics, neutron stars…). e) Cosmology, origin evolution and structure of the Universe (modified gravity). OBJECTIVES Scientific goals In this project we will develope applications of effective theories of the SM and other emergent theories in Particle Physics with special attention to LHC and Cosmology. The reserarch lines are a natural continuation of the projects presented in the last editions. We will articulate the research mainly along the following lines:
(1) Be able to compute the charm diffusion coefficient in a pion gas (2) Provide a bound on gluon deconfinement (none exists) based on expt.data (3) Provide some feedback to diffractive studies (4) Work out the consequences of Regge behavior for Generalized Parton Distributions (5) Compute the bulk (or volume) viscosity of a pion gas, and compute also: (6) The thermodynamics of interacting meson gas at low E (7) Three-gauge boson scattering (8) Light by light scattering in the Dyson-Schwinger formulation (9) Provide some theory support to ALICE at LHC (10) Establish whether one should expect rotational bands in Hadrons (11) Provide observables on Insensitivity to Chiral Symmetry Breaking in High Spectrum (12) Obtain the large-Nc composition of the sigma meson in Fock space (13) Obtain and employ Effective Potentials between alpha-particles and for heavy quarks
(14) Recompute odd-spin glueballs on the lattice (15) Study the loss of hadron sphericity in extreme environments (16) Establish viscosity as an estimator of the size of a neutron star's core (17) Give an anthropic bound on mq from Hoyle resonance (18) Perform some review studies of primordial cosmonucleosynthesis (19) Study non-homogeneous condensates (20) Study the multiple solutions of the gap equation. (21) Study the order of symmetry breaking of different groups by fermion condensation (22) Calculate the viscosity of a photon gas (23) Establish the viability of Non-local field theories as dark energy (24) Study the main signatures of the Inert doublet model as dark matter (25) Analyze the cosmological phenomenology of Scalar-tensor theories of gravity (26) Explore the connection between thermodynamics and gravity within the theory of general relativity and beyond

Members Proposal: “Hadron Physics and QCD: from low energies to LHC” All the UCM members of this subproject belong to the Theoretical Physics Department II Research in this department has been traditionally dedicated to Mathematical Physics or Classical Gravity. However, in the department, our group is the second largest with 2/3 of the PhD students (6 in total). This would be the first Particle Physics project here, and will consolidate the group increasing the influence of Particle Physics in this department and the UCM Relevant for university funding, postdocs, positions, teaching programs,etc… It will also ease the administrative burden at the university level.
Proposal: “Hadron Physics and QCD: from low energies to LHC” Members Previously, our research dedication was spreaded in several projects instead of just one This proposal represents the unification of all our research dedication into a single project based in our own department. J.R. Pelaez and D. Cabrera were:50% with UCM (IP: A. Dobado) 50% with U. Valencia (IP: E.Oset) A. G. Nicola was:50% with UCM(IP: A. Dobado) 50% with UCM(IP: R. Fernández Alvarez-Estrada) D.
