Envisaging Future Trajectories in Effective Field Theory (EFT in EFT)

Lecture Hall (Kavli IPMU)

Lecture Hall

Kavli IPMU


This workshop will focus on new developments in the understanding and application of effective field theory. Topics will cover diverse applications of EFT, including high energy physics, dark matter detection, cosmology, and condensed matter, with a focus on areas where new theoretical techniques and ideas are being developed. These include positivity bounds, large charge expansions and classical limits, scattering amplitudes, generalized symmetries, geometry for field space, and the development of EFT in de Sitter space. The schedule is designed with plenty of time for discussions that might spark research in novel directions.
