Title: Non-standard heavy vectors at the LHC



Searching for heavy vector bosons is one of the challenging objectives of the LHC: I will discuss two scenarios which have not been investigated yet by the experimental  collaborations. The first scenario consists in searching for Z’ bosons, predicted by U(1) GUT-inspired models, by investigating its possible BSM decays, namely supersymmetric decays, leading to resonant final states with chargedleptons and missing energy. Particular care will be taken about models wherein Z' bosons are leptophobic. Afterwards, I will present a recent work, carried out in the framework of the so-called 331 model, which predicts doubly-charged vectors and yields final states with two same-sign lepton pairs, possibly accompanied by two jets, which can be easily separated from the Standard Model backgrounds.

"The first model-independent results obtained by the DAMA/LIBRA–phase2
experiment will be presented. These new data have been collected over 6 annual cycles
corresponding to a total exposure of 1.13 ton × yr, deep underground at the Gran
Sasso National Laboratory (LNGS) of the I.N.F.N. The improved experimental configuration has also
allowed to lower the software energy threshold."

Title: The blackfold approach in (super)gravity

Abstract: Given any theory of gravity, its solution space exhibits a regime of parameter with emergent brane-like behaviour. In this regime black hole dynamics is well approximated by the dynamics of black p-branes, including its extremal limits. I will review the basic applications of this method in both pure gravity and string theory and its connections to novel theories of hydrodynamics and elastodynamics. In particular, I will explain in which sense it provides a finite temperature probe action for numerous applications in supergravity.
