WEDNESDAY October 1, 2003 at 10.15h 

Speaker: Gunnar Ingelman (Uppsala) 
Title: Particle physics phenomenology in Uppsala 
Place: Seminar room in House 11 (OBS! Roslagstullsbacken 11, room 112:028) 

Abstract: "An overview is given about research projects in the Uppsala 
phenomenology group. A main theme is QCD, with the interplay between 
hard/perturbative and soft/non-perturbative processes and using 
Monte-Carlo-based models for detailed comparisons with experimental 
data. This has given improved understanding of proton structure (model 
for parton distributions, interpretation of low-Q2 structure function) 
and of hadronic final states (diffraction, rapidity gaps, charmonium 
etc) involving effects of multi-gluon processes and soft colour 
interactions. Connections to recent heavy ion collision data indicating 
the quark-gluon plasma is presently being explored. A tour into 
astroparticle physics involved simulations of neutrino fluxes from 
cosmic ray interactions. Also physics beyond the Standard model is 
considered, presently with charged Higgs in SUSY." 

WEDNESDAY September 24, 2003 at 13.15h

Speaker: Thomas Schwetz (TUM, Munich) 
Title: Status of Neutrino Oscillations
Time: Wednesday, September 24, at 13.15
Place: Seminar room in House 23 (OBS! Roslagstullsbacken 23, room 132:028) 

Abstract: "A review of the current status of neutrino oscillations is 
given. The implications of solar and atmospheric neutrino experiments 
and the K2K accelerator and KamLAND reactor experiments are discussed, 
and a global fit to all data in the framework of three neutrino flavours 
is presented. Furthermore, the problems to reconcile the LSND evidence 
for oscillations with all the other experimental resluts in the 
framework of four neutrinos and CPT violating scenarios are discussed."
