Abstract: Feynman integrals are the backbone of all higher-order calculations in perturbative quantum field theory. They are not only of formal interest, but they are also key to
performing precise calculations for experiments. In these lecture we review some recent developments in the understanding of the mathematics underlying Feynman integrals. We focus
in particular on tools inspired from modern number theory and the theory of motivic periods, which have been instrumental in some of the most advanced computations for experiments
in collider physics.

Abstract: The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is one of the pillars of modern cosmology. Its existence firmly establishes that our universe was once filled with a hot and dense
plasma, and the statistical properties of the CMB anisotropies teach us a great deal about the history and composition of our universe.
These lectures provide an introduction to the physics underlying the spectrum of the CMB as well as its anisotropies. In addition to an introduction to the underlying theory, they
will provide a short introduction to the analysis of the data from current CMB experiments and will give an outlook what we may hope to learn from future precision measurements of
CMB polarization.

Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in the study of three-particle systems in lattice QCD. Substantial progress has been achieved both in the development of the methods
that enable one to extract infinite-volume observables from lattice data produced on finite-size lattices, as well as in Monte-Carlo calculations of the three-particle systems,
but important recent developments in the two-particle sector havw also been addressed, since these questions are inherently related to each other.
In particular, the following questions were discussed:
