ial conditions for the very early Universe and the models of Higgs and $R^
2$ inflation. The role of local gradient expansion and conformal anomaly a
s calculational methods for the effective action will be discussed and app

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Drazen Glavan (University of Warsaw)\nPhotons are co
nformally coupled to gravity and therefore do not get produced due to cosm
ological expansion\, while gravitons are not and do get produced a lot due
to the expansion. Since gravitons \ncouple universally to all matter fiel
ds they can induce sizeable effects for conformally coupled fields through
loop corrections. I will present computations in two different gauges for
the one-loop graviton corrections to photon vacuum polarization in de Sit
ter spacetime. This is used to quantum correct Maxwell equations\, and I w
ill present two cases\, (i) correction to dynamical photons\, and (ii) cor
rection to the Coulomb force between two point charges. The corrections in
both cases exhibit secular growth. Gauge dependence will be discussed.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: glenn starkman (Case Western Reserve University)\nSe
veral unexpected features have been observed in the temperature of the mic
rowave sky at large angular scales\, from COBE to WMAP and Planck. These
include lack of both variance and correlation on the largest angular scal
es\; alignment of the lowest multipole moments with one another and with t
he motion and geometry of the Solar System\; lack of variance in the north
ern hemisphere\, or a hemispherical power asymmetry or dipolar power modu
lation\; a preference for odd parity modes\; and an unexpectedly large col
d spot in the Southern hemisphere. The individual p-values of the signific
ance of several of these features are in the per mille to per cent level\,
compared to the expectations of the best-fit inflationary ΛCDM model. Th
ere are no good physical models for these anomalies. Rather than focus on
a debate about the validity of a posteori statistics\, or the relative mer
its of one statistical measure or another\, we will discuss how we can mak

q \\frac{D-1}{2}$ in units of the Hubble scale.\nWe derive an equation whi
ch allows to perform the self--consistent resummation of the leading IR co
ntributions from all loops to the two-point correlation function in the ex
panding Poincar\\'{e} patch of de Sitter space. The equation is applicable
only for masses higher than certain value\, $m > \\frac{\\sqrt{3}}{4}\\\,
\\left(D-1\\right)$: the restriction on the masses comes from the fact th
at for low enough masses there are large IR loop effects in the vertices.
The resummation can be done for such density perturbations of the Bunch--D
avies state\, which violate the de Sitter isometry. We find solutions of t
he obtained equation. Some of the solutions have an explosive behavior.\n\

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Paolo Pani (Sapienza University of Rome &\; INFN
Roma1 - IST\, Lisbon)\nGravitational wave (GW) astronomy allows us for unp
recedented tests of the nature of compact objects. In this context\, I wil
l discuss two signatures of new physics at the horizon scale: GW "echoes"
in the postmerger ringdown phase of a binary coalescence\, and the tidal d
eformability of exotic compact objects as measured from the inspiral preme
rger phase. In the first case\, the ringdown waveform of exotic ultracompa
ct objects is initially identical to that of a black hole\, and putative c
orrections at the horizon scale appear only later as a modulated and disto
rted train of echoes of the modes of vibration associated with the photon
sphere. As for the second case\, I will discuss the tidal Love numbers of
different families of boson stars\, gravastars\, wormholes\, and other toy
models for quantum corrections at the horizon scale\, showing that they d
isplay a universal logarithmic dependence on the location of the surface i
n the black-hole limit. I will discuss the ability of present and future G
W detectors to measure these effects. Both LIGO\, ET and LISA can impose i
nteresting constraints on boson stars\, while LISA is able to probe even e
xtremely compact objects like gravastars. We argue that these effects prov
ide a smoking gun of new physics at the horizon scale\, and that future GW
measurements of a binary coalescence provide a novel way to test black ho
les and general relativity in the strong-field regime.\n\nhttps://indico.m

tunity to learn about theoretical physics mechanisms that may be present i
n the extreme gravity environment of coalescing binary black holes. The LI
GO-Virgo collaboration verified that this observation is consistent with E
instein's theory of General Relativity and the Kerr hypothesis\, constrain
ing the presence of parametric anomalies in the signal. In this talk\, I w
ill discuss the plethora of additional inferences that can be drawn on the
oretical physics mechanisms from the absence of such anomalies in the data
. I will classify these inferences in those that inform us about the gener
ation of gravitational waves\, the propagation of gravitational waves and
the structure of exotic compact object alternatives to black holes. I will
then focus on how GW150914 constrains the generation of gravitational wav
es (e.g. the activation of scalar fields\, black hole graviton leakage int
o extra dimensions\, the variability of Newton's constant\, the breakage o
f Lorentz invariance and parity invariance) as well as the propagation of
gravitational waves (e.g. the speed of gravity and the existence of large
extra dimensions).\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/72/contributi

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Ruth Durrer (Universite de Geneve)\nMost numbers in
cosmology have been measured using the anisotropies and polarisation of th
e Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB). So far other data has mainly been use
d for consistency checks and very few inconsistent measurements exist.\n\n
The reason for this is twofold: first the theory of the CMB is nearly line
ar and therefore quite simple. Secondly\, the CMB spectrum peaks around fr
equencies which allow relatively precise observations from the ground and
especially from space.\n\nIn the first part of my talk I review the relati
vely simple physics behind CMB anisotropies and polarisation and show in s
ome examples how it can be used to measure cosmological parameters.\n\nIn
a second part I outline ideas to go beyond present measurements which main
ly constrain cosmological parameters and show how we can use the CMB to te
st General Relativity on cosmological scales. If there is time\, I would a
lso like to outline interesting new developments in the theory of Large Sc
ale Structure observations and argue why we hope that future LSS surveys c
an compete with and complement CMB observations.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.un

ift coverage as well as in sampling rate.\nThe next generation of surveys
will provide us with the possibility to\nmeasure galaxy clustering on scal
es comparable with the Hubble radius (for\nexample: Euclid\, DESI\, SKAII\
, etc.). Theoretical analysis suggests that\nseveral relativistic effects
might be detectable on these scales. In order\nto fully exploit the poten
tial of the new datasets\, it is therefore\nimperative to develop analysis
tools that include these effects. I have\ndeveloped a fully general relat
ivistic formalism which recovers and\ngeneralizes previous results in the
plane-parallel (at-sky) and Newtonian\nwide-angle approximations.\nThese c
orrections become important on large scales both at low and high\nredshift
s\, and lead to new terms in the wide-angle correlations. Now we\nneed to
work out how to apply this formalism for real data and understand\nwhich c
osmological parameters are particularly affected. This will be\nimportant
for future surveys and to guide the development on the next\ngeneration of
large astrophysical experiments.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/even

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Matthias Bartelmann (Heidelberg University)\nThe evo
lution of cosmic structures\, in particular in its late\, non-linear phase
s\, provides important clues on the evolution of the Universe as a whole.
In view of possible\, subtle deviations from general relativity and the co
smological standard model\, non-linear cosmic structures as for example tr
aced by the population of galaxy clusters may act as magnifiers to enhance
small dynamical effects above observational thresholds. For drawing such
conclusions\, we need to understand cosmic structure formation in detail i
n particular on small scales and at late times.\n\nIn the first half of th
is overview talk\, I will review the cosmological standard model and the s
tandard approach to the formation and evolution of cosmic structures. In t
he second half\, I will discuss a new approach to cosmic structure formati
on based on a non-equilibrium\, statistical field theory for correlated\,
classical particle ensembles. First applications of this theory show that
it allows to calculate statistical properties of cosmic structures at low
orders in perturbation theory even at small scales and deeply in the non-l
inear regime. The theory builds on first principles and is free of adjusta
ble parameters.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/72/contributions

t is argued that there is a novel type of energy related to the theta par

topologically nontrivial sectors in gauge theories\, and tunnelling e
vents between them. The talk is based on 3 recent papers:\n\n1. applicatio

we understand gravity. General Relativity seems to work very well in the E
arth’s immediate neighbourhood\, but arguments abound that it needs modi
fication at very small and/or very large distances. This talk tries to put
this discussion into the broader context of similar situations in other a
reas of physics\, and summarizes some of the lessons which our good unders
tanding of gravity in the solar system has for proponents for its modifica
tion over very long and very short distances. The main message is that eff
ective theories (in the technical sense of effective) provide the natural
(and arguably only known) precise language for framing proposals. Its fram
ework is also useful\, inasmuch as it makes some modifications seem more p
lausible than others\, though there are also some surprises.\n\nhttps://in

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Martin Crocce (Institute for Space Science (ICE-CSIC
/IEEC))\nThe striking discovery that the expansion of the Universe is not
slowing down but in fact accelerating has turned into one of the main myst
eries in Physics today\, with explanations that range from new repulsive f
orces\, as the dark energy\, or the failure of Einstein's General Relativi
ty (GR). Understanding this puzzle\, and others such as the dark matter or
the physics of Inflation\, has set the programme for the next decade of O
bservational Cosmology. The goal is to undertake large astronomical survey
s that\, by scanning millions of galaxies across cosmic time\, will study
the origin and evolution of the Large Scale Structure of the Universe. In
this talk I will review which are some of the probes that these surveys u
se to test GR\, such as galaxy clustering and weak lensing\, discussing cu
rrent constrains and their implications. And particularly the perspective
from ongoing and future surveys\, such as the Dark Energy Survey (DES) or
the ESA/Euclid satellite.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/72/con

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Dominik Schwarz (Bielefeld University)\nAn important
assumption of modern cosmology is that the CMB dipole is due to the prope
r motion of the solar system wrt the CMB. This fixes a reference frame for
many observations\, e.g. the Hubble diagram of SN1a. Planck observations
of the largest multipole moments are consistent with the proper motion hyp
othesis\, but also allow for sizeable non-kinetic contributions to the CMB
dipole. The proper motion hypothesis can also be tested at any other wave
length\, given good sky coverage and statistics are available. This is the
case for modern radio point source catalogues. These allow us to measure
the dipole distribution of radio sources at mean redshift of z ~ 1. The ra
dio dipole can be measured at different radio frequencies and is compared
to the CMB dipole. First results at three different frequency bands (at th
ree different instruments) indicate an excess wrt to the expected signal b
ased on the propor motion hypothesis only. The radio dipole directions are
consistent with the CMB dipole direction at all three frequencies. Togeth
er with the alignment of low-l CMB multipole moments with the \nCMB dipole
\, I argue that this is further evidence that the largest angular scales o
f the Universe are not properly understood so far.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Julio Fabris (Universidade Federal do Espirito Santo
)\nThe description of the present universe using a cosmological constant a
nd cold dark matter is\, in general\, very successful. However\, many prob
lems appear at non-linear level\, pointing possibly to the necessity of an
extension of the cold dark matter paradigm. One of the possibilities in t
his sense is to introduce viscosity in the dark matter component. First we
review the general properties of this viscous fluid\, and the application
s to cosmology. Later\, it is analysed the effects of both bulk and shear
viscosities on the perturbations\,\nrelevant for structure formation in la
te time cosmology.\nIt is shown that shear viscosity can be as effective a
s the bulk viscosity \non suppressing the growth of perturbations and dela
ying the non-linear regime.\nA statistical analysis of the shear and bulk
viscous effects is performed\nand some constraints on these viscous effect
s are given.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/72/contributions/22

r of the spacetime metric\, allowing it to propagate over macroscopic dist
ances. Linearized around flat spacetime\, this semi-classical EFT admits s
calar gravitational wave solutions in addition to the transversely polariz

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Emil Mottola (Los Alamos National Laboratory)\nClass
ical General Relativity (GR) together with conventional equations of state
suggest that in complete gravitational collapse a singular state of matte
r with infinite density could be reached finally\, to what is popularly ca
lled a "black hole." In addition to its interior singularities\, the char
acteristic feature of a black hole is its apparent horizon\, the surface o
f finite area at which outwardly directed light rays are first trapped. Th
e loss of information to the outside world this implies gives rise to addi
tional difficulties with well-established principles of quantum mechanics
and statistical physics. I will overview the historical and most recent ap
proaches to these problems\, as well as the status of the gravitational va
cuum condensate star proposal we have made in 2001\, with a p= - rho inter
ior is actually realized in Schwarzschild's second paper over a century ag
o. The redshifted surface tension of the condensate star surface is given
by $\\tau_s = \\Delta \\kappa/8 \\pi G$\, where $\\Delta \\kappa= 1/R_s$ i
s the difference of equal and opposite surface gravities between the exte
rior and interior Schwarzschild solutions. The First Law\, $dM = dE_v + \
\tau_s\\\, dA$ is recognized as a purely mechanical classical relation at
zero temperature and zero entropy\, describing the volume energy and surf
ace energy change respectively. Since there is no event horizon\, the Schw
arzschild time $t$ of such a non-singular gravitational condensate star is
a global time\, fully consistent with unitary time evolution in quantum t
heory. The $p=-\\bar\\rho$ interior acts as a defocusing lens for light pa
ssing through the condensate\, leading to imaging characteristics distingu
ishable from a classical black hole. Further observational test of gravita
tional condensate stars vs. black holes is the {\\it discrete} surface mo
des of oscillation and echoes which should be detectable by their gravitat
ional wave signatures.\n\nhttps://indico.mitp.uni-mainz.de/event/72/contri
