or the multi-critical multi-field models in d>2 recently obtained using CF
T+Schwinger-Dyson methods without assuming any symmetry. Results in the le
ading non trivial order are derived consistently for several conformal dat
a in full agreement with functional perturbative RG methods. I also discus

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Daniel Becker (Gymnasium Herkenrath)\nWhat should a
fundamental theory of quantum gravity look like? While the theories united
in the Standard Model of particle physics fulfill a standard set of requi
rements\, gravity is special in the sense that spacetime itself becomes dy
namical.\n\nThe independence of any preset background geometry is thus at
the root of every quantum generalization of general relativity\, as is (no
nperturbative) renormalizability. The latter started the long ongoing disc
ussion on a suitable approach to quantum gravity\, for it was shown\, that
standard "quantization" of the classical Einstein-Hilbert action led is n
ot renormalizable. Higher derivatives might be the cure\, however unitarit
y seems to be lost.\n\nIn this talk\, the aspects of background independen
ce and unitarity are investigated within the Asymptotic Safety program to
quantum gravity. While technically challenging\, the studied cases indicat
ed that instead of being a burden\, both concepts might help as "standard
candles" in the sky of all possible theories.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-m

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Abhay Ashtekar (Penn State)\nThanks to the spectacul
ar observational advances since the 1990s\, a `standard model' of the earl
y universe has now emerged. However\, since it is based on quantum field t
heory in curved space-times\, it is not applicable in the Planck regime. U
sing techniques from loop quantum gravity\, the theory can be extended ove
r the 12 orders of magnitude in density and curvature from the onset of in
flation all the way back to the Planck regime\, providing us with a possib
le completion of the standard model. Contrary to a common belief\, the res
ulting pre-inflationary dynamics can have observational consequences. Thus
\, there is now an an interesting interplay between fundamental theory and
observations. The talk will provide a broad overview of these results.\n\

FP-driven inflation via a renormalization group improvement scheme. The co

intuitively\, the negative fixed point value of the dimensionless cosmolog

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Benjamin Knorr (Radboud University)\nAmong the sever
al approaches to quantise gravity\, one particular is Horava-Lifshitz grav
ity\, claiming that Lorentz symmetry is broken microscopically\, which mig
ht allow a perturbative renormalisation of gravity. For this scenario to b
e related to the real world\, Lorentz symmetry must be restored on large s
cales to be consistent with countless experiments. I propose a new foliate
d renormalisation group equation which preserves background diffeomorphism
symmetry if the initial action is invariant. With this\, it can be invest
igated whether quantum effects enhance or diminish Lorentz symmetry violat
ions.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/134/contributions/598/

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Astrid Eichhorn ()\nI will discuss recent progress t
owards an ultraviolet completion of the Standard Model induced by asymptot
ically safe quantum fluctuations of gravity. In particular\, I will focus
on a scenario to retrodict the top and bottom mass and the Abelian gauge c
oupling from asymptotic safety. In an approximation\, antiscreening quantu
m-gravity fluctuations induce an asymptotically safe fixed point for the A
belian hypercharge leading to a uniquely fixed infrared value that is obse
rvationally viable for a particular choice of microscopic gravitational pa
rameters. The unequal quantum numbers of the top and bottom quark lead to
different fixed-point values for the top and bottom Yukawa under the impac
t of gauge and gravity fluctuations. This results in a dynamically generat
ed mass difference between the two quarks. To work quantitatively\, the pr
eferred ratio of electric charges of bottom and top in our approximation l
ies in close vicinity to the Standard-Model value of Q_b/Q_t =-1/2.\n\nhtt

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alessandro Codello ()\nAfter reviewing the Functiona
l reformulation of the standard Perturbative RG (FPRG)\, I'll describe the
classification of universality classes in arbitrary dimension within the
epsilon-expansion and the relative determination of CFT data.\n\nIn the si
ngle component case\, universality classes are represented by renormalizab
le scalar QFTs with self-interacting potentials of highest monomial φ^m b
elow their upper critical dimensions dc = 2m/(m -2). For even integers\, m
≥ 4 these theories coincide with the Landau-Ginzburg description of mul
ti-critical phenomena and interpolate with the unitary minimal models in d
= 2\, while for odd m the theories are non-unitary and start at m = 3 wit
h the Lee-Yang universality class.\n\nAn important outcome of this analysi
s is the realization of the existence of a new non-trivial family of d = 3
universality classes with upper critical dimension dc = 10/3.\n\nSubseque
ntly\, I will show how the FPRG formalism allows a straightforward general
ization to the multicomponent case\, with almost no need for additional co
mputations. The classification of multicomponent universality classes if f
ar from complete and I will discuss the present state of knowledge with fe
w examples\, including Potts and O(N) models.\n\nI will conclude with a re

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Max Niedermaier (Department of Physics and Astronomy
\, University of Pittsburgh)\nIn QFT an Anti-Newtonian expansion perturbs
around decoupled copies of a self-interacting quantum mechanical system\,
with subsequent coupling induced by spatial hopping terms. Such an expansi
on is developed for the effective action of 1+d dimensional scalar QFTs. A
Functional Renormalization Group in the hopping parameter leads to a recu
rsion for which an exact solution in terms of combinatorial graph rules is
presented.\n\nUpon coupling to gravity a coordinated gravitational expans
ion is needed to account for the classical backreaction of scalar field in
homogeneities. In Einstein gravity\, the Anti-Newtonian limit has no dynam
ical spatial gradients\, yet remains fully diffeomorphism invariant and pr
opagates the original number of dofs. A canonical transformation (triviali
zation map) is constructed\, in powers of a fractional inverse of Newton's
constant that maps the ADM action into its Anti-Newtonian limit. Its inve
rse restores dynamical spatial gradients and provides classically the coor
dinated gravitational expansion. We outline the prospects of an associated
trivializing flow in the quantum theory.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz

uantum theory at low energies. Treated as an effective field theory one is
able to make genuine quantum predictions by applying the conventional rul
es of quantum field theory. The low energy degrees of freedom and coupling
s of quantum gravity are fully dictated by the symmetries of general relat
ivity. At long distances\, the leading quantum corrections are precisely i
nduced by the low-energy fluctuations of the massless graviton. Non-local
effective actions efficiently encode the latter class of quantum correctio
