## High Energy Theory Events

#### Spring 2024

##### Non-geometric String Compactifications and the Swampland

Speaker: Muthusamy Rajaguru (Lehigh University)

The Swampland program attempts to classify Effective Field Theories based on their compatibility with Quantum Gravity. The criteria for compatibility are posed as conjectures for which there exist varying levels of evidence from explicit string compactifications. In this talk, I will discuss completed and ongoing work that is focused on [...]##### High Dimension Operators of High Dimension CFTs

Speaker: Nathan Benjamin (California Institute of Technology)

I will discuss universal behavior of conformal field theory (CFT) data at high energies. In particular I will discuss universal formulas for both the entropy and the three-point-functions of local operators for d-dimensional CFT (d>2) as a function of energy and spin, using a technique called thermal effective field theory.
