Event Date Summary
Matthew Baumgart (Perimeter Institute) Tue. February 14th, 2017
11:00 am-12:00 pm

De Sitter Wavefunctionals and the Resummation of Time
The holographic RG of Anti-De Sitter gives a powerful clue about the underlying AdS/CFT correspondence. The question is whether similar hints can be found for the heretofore elusive holographic dual of De Sitter. …Read more.

Andrew Zentner (Pittsburgh) Tue. February 7th, 2017
11:00 am-12:00 pm

The Power-Law Galaxy Correlation Function
For nearly 40 years, the galaxy-galaxy correlation function has been used to characterize the distribution of galaxies on the sky. In addition, the galaxy correlation function has been recognized as very nearly power-law like despite the fact that it is measured over a wide range of scales. …Read more.

Kurt Hinterbichler (CWRU) Tue. January 31st, 2017
11:00 am-12:00 pm

Partially Massless Higher-Spin Gauge Theory
The higher spin theories of Vasiliev are gauge theories that contain towers of massless particles of all spins, and are thought to be UV complete quantum theories that include gravity, describing physics at energies much higher than the Planck scale. …Read more.

Lucile Savary (MIT) — Michelson Postdoctoral Prize Lecturer Tue. January 24th, 2017
11:00 am-12:00 pm

Quantum Spin Ice
Recent work has highlighted remarkable effects of classical thermal fluctuations in the dipolar spin ice compounds, such as “artificial magnetostatics.” In this talk, I will address the effects of terms which induce quantum dynamics in a range of models close to the classical spin ice point. …Read more.

Lucile Savary (MIT) — Michelson Postdoctoral Prize Lecturer Mon. January 23rd, 2017
4:15 pm-5:15 pm

A New Type of Quantum Criticality in the Pyrochlore Iridates
The search for truly quantum phases of matter is one of the center pieces of modern research in condensed matter physics. …Read more.

Claire Zukowski (Columbia U.) Tue. January 17th, 2017
11:00 am-12:00 pm

Emergent de Sitter Spaces from Entanglement Entropy
A theory of gravity can be holographically “emergent” from a field theory in one lower dimension. In most known cases, the gravitational theory lives in an asymptotically anti- de Sitter spacetime with very different properties from our own de Sitter universe. …Read more.
