### Particle Physics Seminar, Yanou Cui, U of Maryland, "Detecting Boosted Dark Matter"

### Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Justin Khoury, "An Alternative to Particle Dark Matter"

### Hamilton Colloquium Series - Slava Rychkov, CERN, and ENS-Paris, “Non-Hamiltonian approach to conformal quantum field theory – 40 years later”

Most takes on quantum field theory start from microscopics, fundamental degrees of freedom, a Lagrangian. Conformal field theory is an exception—it focuses on the algebra of local operators and avoids any reference to the Lagrangian. This leads to a method for doing practical CFT calculations—the conformal bootstrap.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series - Michael Gordin, Dept. of History, Princeton, “Einstein in Bohemia: Not-So-General Relativity, 1911-1912”

In the spring of 1911, Albert Einstein moved from Zurich to the German University in Prague, taking up his first appointment as a full professor. Heavily on his mind was a project to extend the special theory of relativity (1905) to a general theory of relativity, building from his 1907 inspiration on the equivalence of inertial and...
