### Event details

The study of non-relativistic bound systems has a long history in physics and is still highly relevant today. I outline how modern effective field theory methods enable us to systematically improve their description. As examples, I discuss compact binary systems as sources of gravitational waves and the production of Higgs bosons and Higgs boson pairs in gluon fusion at the LHC.

### About Particle Physics Theory seminars

The Particle Physics Theory seminar is a weekly series of talks reflecting the diverse interests of the group. Topics include analytic and numerical calculations based on the Standard Model of elementary particle physics, theories exploring new physics, as well as more formal developments in gauge theories and gravity..
