### Gravity Group Seminar, Jonathan Blackman (CIT)

TITLE Surrogate models of gravitational waveforms from numerical relativity simulations of black hole mergers ABSTRACT GW150914 was the first detection of gravitational waves from a binary black hole merger, bringing us into the era of gravitational wave astronomy.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series: David Vanderbilt, Rutgers University; “The search for quantum anomalous Hall insulators”

*Please note this colloquium starts at 4:30 p.m.* The quantum Hall effect, discovered 35 years ago, is a bizarre phenomenon in which a 2D gapped system can nevertheless carry a current. Moreover, the transverse conductivity of the system is precisely quantized in units of e^2/h.

### Math Physics Seminar, Eviatar Procaccia, Texas A & M, "Can one hear the shape of a random walk?"

### Pheno & Vino Seminar, David Shih, Rutgers, "Cornering Natural SUSY at the LHC"

### HET Seminar | Alba Grassi, ICTP in Trieste | "Topological string, spectral theory and Painlevé equations"

### Biophysics Seminar speaker Robert Gütig, Max Planck “Spiking neurons can discover predictive features by aggregate-label learning”

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

### Gravity Group Seminar, Ben Racine (University of Oslo) "B modes and component separation: the Gibbs sampling solution"

Detecting B-modes due to inflationary gravitational waves in the polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background is one of the greatest goals of modern observational cosmology. Many experiments have been designed to detect this weak signal, and upper limits are improving year by year.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series: Stephen Shenker, Stanford; "Quantum gravity and quantum chaos"

One hallmark of chaos is sensitive dependence to initial conditions, the “butterfly effect.” We will discuss recent advances in our understanding of the quantum butterfly effect and its connection to the quantum physics of black holes. We will discuss a universal bound on the rate of development of quantum chaos motivated by these developments...
