## Symmetry breaking beyond the Standard Model of particle physics

In the first part of this talk I will present an overview of the successes and shortcomings of the mathematical formulation of the Standard Model (SM) of particle physics. Then I will present highlights of various particle physics projects under development in the GGD group, namely: i) models of symmetry breaking beyond the Standard Model with many Higgs particles, ii) the development of computational tools in connection with the CERN Large Hadron Collider experiment, iii) the calculation of radiative corrections and iv) the unification of fundamental forces.

## Einstein–Maxwell–Anti-de-Sitter solitons and black holes

We consider a new class of solutions in Einstein-Maxwell theory with a negative cosmological constant. There are no analogue objects to these solutions in asymptotically flat spacetime and their existence can be traced back to the "box"-like behaviour of the background spacetime.

Both solitons and black holes are discussed. In the latter case, we report a class of static solutions that have no continuous spatial symmetries.

These black holes have a smooth, topologically spherical horizon, but without isometries.
