Theoretical uncertainties for cosmological first-order phase transitions
We critically examine the magnitude of theoretical uncertainties in perturbative calculations of first-order phase transitions, using the Standard Model effective field theory as our guide. In theExpand
A QCD Debye mass in a broad temperature range
The Debye mass sets a scale for the screening of static charges and the scattering of fast charges within a gauge plasma. Inspired by its potential cosmological applications, we determine a QCD DebyeExpand
Soft thermal contributions to 3-loop gauge coupling
A bstractWe analyze 3-loop contributions to the gauge coupling felt by ultrasoft (“magnetostatic”) modes in hot Yang-Mills theory. So-called soft/hard terms, originating from dimension-six operatorsExpand
Optimizing Simulation Times of SPS Slow Extraction using MAD-X
The simulation time of a MAD-X script employing particle tracking to model the slowextraction process of 400 GeV protons from the SPS was studied by batching the code on the CERN computing batchExpand
Multi-loop investigations of strong interactions at high temperatures
Matter alters its properties remarkably when confronted with extreme conditions such astemperatures as high as in the early universe. The emergenceof the Quark-Gluon Plasma andrestoration ofExpand
Modelling the Radioactivity Induced by Slow-Extraction Losses in the CERN SPS
Resonant slow extraction is used to provide an intense quasi-DC flux of high-energy protons for the Fixed Target (FT) physics programme at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS). The unavoidableExpand
Robust approach to thermal resummation: Standard Model meets a singlet
Perturbation theory alone fails to describe thermodynamics of the electroweak phase transition. We review a technique combining perturbative and non-perturbative methods to overcome this challenge.Expand
Singlet-assisted electroweak phase transition at two loops
We investigate the electroweak phase transition in the real-singlet extension of the Standard Model at two-loop level, building upon existing one-loop studies. We calculate the effective potential inExpand
JACoW : SPS Slow Extraction Losses and Activation: Challenges and Possibilities for Improvement
In 2015 the highest integrated number of protons in the history of the North Area (NA) was slow extracted from the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) for the Fixed Target (FT) physics programme. AtExpand
