23 Feb. S. A. Abel :
D-branes are a useful tool for examining the properties of theories with extra dimensions, with the added convenience of renormalisability and UV finiteness. In this talk I discuss some of the questions that can be addressed in this formalism including power law running and FCNCs.
24 Feb. A. Nomerotski :
Since its discovery in 1977 the bottom quark played a prominent role in the Standard Model of elementary particles due to its heaviness and long lifetime. These unique features allowed to develop special approaches to study its properties both in theory and experimental techniques. The talk will review new results on B-physics from the DZero detector at Fermilab. The emphasis will be done on the lifetime and oscillation measurements which require precision tracking with silicon detectors.

09 Mar. B. Allanach :
If future colliders discover supersymmetric particles and probe their properties, one could predict the dark matter density of the Universe and would constrain cosmology with the help of precision data provided by WMAP and PLANCK. We investigate how well the relic density can be predicted in minimal supergravity (mSUGRA), with and without the assumption of mSUGRA when analysing data. We determine the parameters to which the relic density is most sensitive, and quantify the collider accuracy needed. Theoretical errors in the prediction are investigated in some detail.
