Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
The Festina Lente Bound
Date: Friday, April 1st
Time: 1:00 pm
Place: Chamberlin 5280
Speaker: Thomas Van Riet, Leuven University
Abstract: The Festina Lente proposal bounds masses of charged particles in terms of the Hubble scale and the Planck scale. This bound is supposed to be a Swampland bound and is required for successful UV completion of an EFT. I will explain how this bound is motivated from semi-classical black hole physics, I briefly sketch how it can constrain both bottom-up phenomenology and string phenomenology.
