We meet every Monday at 1.30pm to discuss the new developments in the fields of research relevant for GRAPPA members and affiliates. The idea is to discuss briefly, with the help of a projector, the results of ~5 interesting papers recently appeared on the arXiv, or anywhere else. Please choose one posted e.g. this week in your field and tell us about it in 5-10 minutes. Feel free to join us even if you haven't read anything.

  • Thermal dark matter implies new physics not far above the weak scale. http://arxiv.org/abs/1403.5829 [Francesca]


  1. Secondary Models for Radio Mini-Halos in Galaxy Clusters with MHD Simulations of Gas Sloshing [http://arxiv.org/abs/1403.6743]

  2. BICEP as a possible evidence for tunneling: [http://arxiv.org/abs/1404.2278]
    Ben will probably talk about his new paper, and this one is related.
