DESCRIPTION:The 6th edition of the Higgs Centre School of Theoretical Phys
ics will take place on-line via Zoom from 31 May-4 June 2021. The scientif
ic programme starts at 9:00 on Monday 31st\, and ends at 17:30 on Friday 4
th.\n\nThe School comprises two in-depth lecture series\, each involving f
ive 2-hours lectures delivered on the blackboard\, and a similar number of
tutorials.\n\nFor this year's School we are delighted to have:\n\nStefan
Weinzierl (Mainz)- Modern Methods for Feynman Integrals\n\nFor precision c
alculations in high energy particle physics there is no way around Feynman
integrals. This course will start from the basics and bring the students
to the current edge of the state-of-the-art. The course will also introduc
e the underyling mathematical concepts.\n\nTopics included in this course
are:\n- various representations of Feynman integrals (loop momentum repres
entation\, Feynman parameter representation\, Mellin-Barnes representation
\, Baikov representation\, ...)\n- properties of Feynman graphs\n- relatio
ns among Feynman integrals (integration-by-parts\, intersection theory\, .
..)\n- integral represetations (method of differential equations\, transfo
rming a differential equation\, iterated integrals\, ...)\n- sum represent
ations (Gel'fand-Kapranov-Zelevinsky systems\, ...)\n- functions associate
d to Feynman integrals (multiple polylogarithms\, "elliptic" generalisatio
ns\, ...)\n\n \n\nMatthew McCullough (CERN and Cambridge)- Examining the
Higgs\n\nAbstract: The Higgs boson has been a central feature in both the
oretical and experimental investigation of fundamental physics for decades
. In these lectures I will examine the Higgs from a theoretical perspectiv
e. First I will detail\, from this theoretical perspective\, the experimen
tal status of our knowledge of the Higgs’ properties\, answering questio
ns such as “How does it move?” and “How does the energy of the vacuu
m depend on the Higgs field?". I will then move on to discuss the long-stu
died hierarchy problem\, which pertains to the unknown fundamental origins
of the Higgs boson\, and will explore a number of different avenues for a
ddressing this problem\, along with an up-to-date summary of their experim
ental status. I will finish with a look to the far future of Higgs physics
and what we can hope to learn.\n\nTo register\, please click on the indic
