The science and technology of DUNE
/ Terranova, Francesco (speaker) (Universita & INFN, MilanoBicocca (IT))
The DUNE experiment is one of the most ambitious projects ever conceived in neutrino physics and is currently under construction at Fermilab and SURF. Its science addresses neutrino oscillations with a wideband accelerator neutrino beam, together with astroparticles, multimessenger physics, and physics beyond the Standard Model using natural sources.

Prospects for Fusion Energy using Magnetic Confinement
/ Zohm, Hartmut (speaker) (MaxPlanckInstitut für Plasmaphysik) ; Mumgaard, Bob (speaker) (Commonwealth Fusion System)
Nuclear Fusion is the process that powers the stars. Research to make this process accessible as an energy source on Earth by confining a hot hydrogenic plasma in magnetic fields has made substantial progress. In this talk, we will first introduce the principles of magnetic confinement and then review the present status of research. [...]

The Practice and Sociology of Natural Science
/ Peebles, James (speaker) (Princeton University)
Lessons about research in the natural sciences can be drawn from the sociology of science. For example, in 1960 Einstein's general theory of relativity was standard and accepted physics, and elements of it were on the qualifying exam I wrote as a graduate student. [...]

Small Cosmological Constants in String Theory
/ McAllister, Liam (speaker) (Cornell University)
I will present a construction of vacua of string theory in which the magnitude of the cosmological constant is exponentially small. The vacua are supersymmetric AdS solutions in flux compactifications of type IIB string theory, with all moduli stabilized. The vacuum energy is small because we ensure the exact cancellation of all perturbative contributions, through an explicit choice of integer parameters determined by the topology and quantized fluxes. The nonperturbative contributions that remain are exponential in these integers. Finding cosmological constants of small magnitude in this landscape is exponentially easier than in BoussoPolchinski landscapes, but extending our approach to positive cosmological constants in realistic universes is a difficult open problem..

The large charge expansion
/ Reffert, Susanne (speaker) (Universitaet Bern (CH))
Over the last few years, it has become clear that working in sectors of large global charge leads to significant simplifications when studying strongly coupled CFTs, theories which are otherwise often inaccessible to analytic methods. It allows us in particular to calculate the CFT data as an expansion in inverse powers of the large charge. In this talk, I will introduce the largecharge expansion via the simple example of the O(2) model and will then generalize it to the O(N) vector model which displays a richer structure due to its nonAbelian global symmetry group.

Wormhole effects in quantum black hole physics
/ Stanford, Douglas (speaker) (Stanford University)
A powerful idea in theoretical physics is the conjecture that (from a distance) black holes behave like ordinary quantum systems. Thought of in this way, black holes display many deep quantum phenomena in simple but often surprising ways. [...]

Nuclear Arms Control: Help wanted
/ von Hippel, Frank N. (speaker) (Princeton University)
During World War II, Niels Bohr met with both President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill to warn them that a nuclear arms race was likely if the Soviet Union were not engaged immediately in consultations on how nuclear weapons could be controlled after the war.
Physicists played critical roles in informing the negotiators of all postwar nuclear arms control agreements, especially those limiting nuclear testing and ballistic missile defenses. [...]

Quantum Field Theory Tools for Gravitational Wave Science
/ Solon, Mikhail (speaker)
Future gravitational wave detectors will map out and characterize every binary merger in the history of the universe. The possibilities for new and unexpected scientific discoveries from this wealth of data is staggering, but hinges crucially on complementary advances in our theoretical understanding of the nature of gravitational wave sources.
