Precise computation of quantum amplitudes (19w2241)


Andrzej Czarnecki (University of Alberta)


The Banff International Research Station will host the "Precise computation of quantum amplitudes" workshop in Banff from April 5, 2019 to April 7, 2019.

This workshop will prepare tools for theoretical predictions important for guiding and interpreting precise experiments. These experiments search for so-called New Physics, that is for phenomena beyond the currently known subatomic models. They are performed primarily in the United States (for example Mu2e at Fermilab) and in Japan (COMET at J-PARC). The subatomic theory group at the University of Alberta is a world leader in providing such precise predictions for experiments involving bound elementary particles.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
