## 2014

### Biophysics Seminar - Surya Ganguli (Stanford)

### Particle Physics Seminar, Mikhail Solon, U of Chicago, "Standard Model anatomy of WIMP observables"

### High Energy Theory Seminar- Itamar Yaakov, Princeton University - "Generalized indices for N=1 theories in four-dimensions"

### Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Robert Caldwell, "Chiral Gravitational Dynamics in the Early Universe"

I present a toy cosmological model that breaks the symmetry between left and right-handed gravitational waves. The possible implications for the gravitational wave and cosmic microwave backgrounds are explored. In the end, it all comes down to spinning tops.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series- Leslie Rosenberg, University of Washington, "Searching for Dark-Matter Axions"

The axion is a hypothetical elementary particle whose existence would explain the baffling absence of CP violation in strong interactions. Axions also happen to be a compelling dark-matter candidate. Even if dark-matter axions were to comprise the overwhelming majority of mass in the universe, they would be extraordinarily difficult to detect...

### High Energy Theory Seminar- Mirjam Cvetic, U. of Pennsylvania, "Non-extremal Black Holes and Conformal Invariance"

### Biophysics Seminar, Timothy O'Leary (Brandeis) "Stable neural function from sloppy underlying components".

Catered lunch at 11:45, talk begins at 12 noon.

### Particle Physics Seminar, David Shih, Rutgers, "The SUSY Flavor Problem in EGMSB and Beyond"

### High Energy Theory Seminar- IAS - Takemichi Okui, Florida State U. - “An Explanation of the WW Excess at the LHC by Jet-veto (and pi^2) Resummation

### Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Paul Steinhardt, "Recent progress in bouncing cosmologies"

### Hamilton Colloquium Series- David Huse, Princeton University, "Quantum thermalization, many-body Anderson localization, and the entanglement frontier"

Progress in physics and quantum information science motivates much recent study of the behavior of extensively-entangled many-body quantum systems fully isolated from their environment, and thus undergoing unitary time evolution. What does it mean for such a system to go to thermal equilibrium?

### HET Seminar- IAS- Anton Kapustin, Caltech: Simons Center for Geometry & Physics, Stony Brook "Short-Range Entangled Phases and Topology"

### Particle Physics Seminar, Brian Henning, Berkeley, "What do precision Higgs measurements buy us?"

### High Energy Theory Seminar - Aron Wall-IAS -Quantum Extremal Surfaces

### Luis Lehner, "Turbulent black holes, through holography to the real world"

### Math Physics Seminar: Amir Dembo, "Statistical Mechanics on Sparse Random Graphs: Mathematical Perspective"

### High Energy Theory Seminar- Kristan Jensen, Stony Brook, “Galilean fields in curved spacetime”

### Special Condensed Matter Seminar - Peng Cai, Tsinghua University, "Electronic Structure Evolution of Lightly Doped Cuprates Revealed by STM"

### Biophysics Seminar - Wolfgang Losert - U. Maryland

Lunch @ 11:45,seminar 12-1:00
