EuPRAXIA-DN School on Plasma Accelerators


Several tens of thousands of particle accelerators are in use today with varied applications in research, industry, medicine and other fields. Yet accelerator usage could be much more widespread, were it not limited by cost and size constraints, especially in hospitals, universities, and small and medium size companies. This would enable ground-breaking applications and innovations on a much larger scale.

A possible solution to this bottleneck is the development of more compact – and consequently more cost-efficient – accelerator technologies, a strategy that has been investigated in the past two decades bringing forth plasma accelerators as one of its most promising candidates.

This interdisciplinary school will bring together all research areas within EuPRAXIA-DN and will be held in the 'Eternal City' Rome in Italy from 22-26 April 2024. Lectures and topical talks will be presented by research leaders from academia and industry.

The school will be organized in partnership with INFN and introduce the basic principles of plasma accelerators, including basic plasma physics, laser- and beam-driven acceleration, plasma injection schemes, plasma and beam diagnostics, particle-in-cell codes, as well as specific high impact projects, including EuPRAXIA and AWAKE. Tutorial sessions in smaller problem classes will reinforce content and promote discussion. All participants will be given the opportunity to present their own research in a poster session.

Social events, an excursion to INFN-LNF, and a public talk on plasma accelerator science and technology will complement the programme.

Terry Wall lecture 2024: The hidden structure of sumsets


The Department of Mathematical Sciences is delighted to welcome Professor Timothy Gowers to deliver the 2024 Terry Wall Lecture, which will take place on the 20th of March 2024 at 4:15pm. No registration is needed if you would like to attend in person; this registration is for Zoom attendance only.

Abstract: Let A be a finite set of integers (or more generally a set of elements of some Abelian group). The sumset A + A consists of all integers that can be written as a + b, where a and b are elements of A. This very simple definition leads quickly to a wealth of interesting problems, some now solved, and others still wide open.
