QED Corrections to Hadronic Observables / Patella, Agostino (CERN ; Plymouth U., Math. Stat. Dept.)
When aiming at the percent precision in hadronic quantities calculated by means of lattice simulations, isospin breaking effects become relevant. These are of two kinds: up/down mass splitting and electromagnetic corrections. [...]

We present results by the ALPHA collaboration for the $\Lambda$-parameter in 3-flavour QCD and the strong coupling constant at the electroweak scale, $\alpha_s(m_Z)$, in terms of hadronic quantities computed on the CLS gauge configurations. The first part of this proceedings contribution contains a review of published material \cite{Brida:2016flw,DallaBrida:2016kgh} and yields the $\Lambda$-parameter in units of a low energy scale, $1/L_{\rm had}$.

Non-gaussianity of the critical 3d Ising model / Rychkov, Slava (CERN ; Ecole Normale Superieure) ; Simmons-Duffin, David (Princeton, Inst. Advanced Study ; Caltech) ; Zan, Bernardo (ITPP, Lausanne ; CERN)
We discuss the 4pt function of the critical 3d Ising model, extracted from recent conformal bootstrap results. We focus on the non-gaussianity Q - the ratio of the 4pt function to its gaussian part given by three Wick contractions. [...]

We investigate the general structure of mirror symmetry breaking in the Twin Higgs scenario. We show, using the IR effective theory, that a significant gain in fine tuning can be achieved if the symmetry is broken hardly. [...]

Phenomenological analysis of associated production of $Z^0+b$ in the $b \rightarrow J/\psi X$ decay channel at the LHC / Lansberg, Jean-Philippe (Orsay, IPN) ; Shao, Hua-Sheng (CERN)
The ATLAS collaboration recently reported on the first observation of associated-production of a $Z^0$ boson with a $J/\psi$. We recently claimed that the corresponding yield of the {\it prompt} $J/\psi$ was dominated by double parton scatterings in the ATLAS acceptance with a somewhat small value of $\sigma_{\rm eff}$.

Massless Interacting Scalar Fields in de Sitter space / Nacir, Diana López (CERN) ; Mazzitelli, Francisco D (Balseiro Inst., San Carlos de Bariloche) ; Trombetta, Leonardo G (Balseiro Inst., San Carlos de Bariloche)
We present a method to compute the two-point functions for an $O(N)$ scalar field model in de Sitter spacetime, avoiding the well known infrared problems for massless fields. The method is based on an exact treatment of the Euclidean zero modes and a perturbative one of the nonzero modes, and involves a partial resummation of the leading secular terms. [...]

Likelihood Analysis of Supersymmetric SU(5) GUTs / Bagnaschi, E. (DESY) ; Costa, J.C. (Imperial Coll., London) ; Sakurai, K. (Durham U., IPPP ; Warsaw U.) ; Borsato, M.

(Imperial Coll., London) ; De Roeck, A. (CERN ; Antwerp U.) ; Dolan, M.J. (Melbourne U.) et al.
We perform a likelihood analysis of the constraints from accelerator experiments and astrophysical observations on supersymmetric (SUSY) models with SU(5) boundary conditions on soft SUSY-breaking parameters at the GUT scale. The parameter space of the models studied has 7 parameters: a universal gaugino mass $m_{1/2}$, distinct masses for the scalar partners of matter fermions in five- and ten-dimensional representations of SU(5), $m_5$ and $m_{10}$, and for the $\mathbf{5}$ and $\mathbf{\bar 5}$ Higgs representations $m_{H_u}$ and $m_{H_d}$, a universal trilinear soft SUSY-breaking parameter $A_0$, and the ratio of Higgs vevs $\tan \beta$.

D = 3 Unification of Curious Supergravities / Duff, M.J. (Imperial Coll., London ; Oxford U., Inst. Math.) ; Ferrara, S. (CERN ; INFN, Italy ; UCLA) ; Marrani, A. (Enrico Fermi Ctr., Rome ; INFN, Padua ; CERN ; Padua U.)
We consider the dimensional reduction to D = 3 of four maximal-rank supergravities which preserve minimal supersymmetry in D = 11, 7, 5 and 4. Such "curious" theories were investigated some time ago, and the four-dimensional one corresponds to an N = 1 supergravity with 7 chiral multiplets spanning the seven-disk manifold. [...]

A Clockwork Theory / Giudice, Gian F. (CERN) ; McCullough, Matthew (CERN)
The clockwork is a mechanism for generating light particles with exponentially suppressed interactions in theories which contain no small parameters at the fundamental level. We develop a general description of the clockwork mechanism valid for scalars, fermions, gauge bosons, and gravitons. [...]

Exact $\nabla^4 R^4$ couplings and helicity supertraces / Bossard, Guillaume (Ecole Polytechnique, CPHT) ; Pioline, Boris (CERN ; Paris, LPTHE)
In type II string theory compactified on a $d$-dimensional torus $T^d$ down to $D=10-d$ dimensions, the $R^4$ and $\nabla^4 R^4$ four-graviton couplings are known exactly, for all values of the moduli, in terms of certain Eisenstein series of the U-duality group $E_{d}(\mathbb{Z})$. In the limit where one circle in the torus becomes large, these couplings are expected to reduce to their counterpart in dimension $D+1$, plus threshold effects and exponentially suppressed corrections corresponding to BPS black holes in dimension $D+1$ whose worldline winds around the circle.
