### Special Seminar: Pedram Roushan, Google: "Chiral ground-state currents of interacting photons in a synthetic magnetic field”

Thu, Jun 16, 2016, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

The intriguing many-body phases of quantum matter arise from the interplay of particle interactions, spatial symmetries, and external fields. Generating these phases in an engineered system could provide deeper insight into their nature and the potential for harnessing their unique properties.

### Special CM Seminar, David van Woerkom, Delft University of Technology, "Dynamics of Superconductor-Semiconductor Josephson junctions"

Thu, Jun 9, 2016, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

### Special CM Seminar, Aris Alexandradinata, Yale, "The first nonsymmorphic topological insulator: prediction and discovery"

Wed, Jun 8, 2016, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Spatial symmetries in crystals are distinguished by whether they preserve the spatial origin. I will show how this basic geometric property gives rise to a new topology in band insulators, which we propose (and subsequently discover) to lie in the large-gap insulators: KHgX (X=As,Sb,Bi).

### Special Seminar: Edoardo Baldini, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland, "Exploring the Nonequilibrium Dynamics of Collective Excitations"

Mon, Jun 6, 2016, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

One of the distinctive characteristics of strongly interacting and correlated quantum systems is the non-trivial interplay between low- and high-energy degrees of freedom. The origin of this interplay lies in the electron-electron and electron-boson interactions, which spread the optical spectral weight over a wide energy range.

Fri, Jun 3, 2016, 1:45 pm to 3:00 pm

Higher-Order Results from BlackHat

### Arnab Rudra, University of California, Davis | String theory low energy expansion and M theory amplitudes

Wed, Jun 1, 2016, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Description: The goal of this discussion will be to first provide a broader picture and then to discuss the most recent work. I will review the general features of Low energy expansion of stringy amplitudes (tree level and one-loop) and it's relation to number of non-compact dimensions.

### Hear the Music of the Cosmos: strings, gravitational waves, and beyond! - Katerina Visnjic

“Searching for New Phenomena at the Intensity Frontier”
Abstract
In February of this year the intensity frontier SuperKEKB e+e- collider, located at the KEK laboratory in Tsukuba, came online with its “first turns”, a major milestone in preparing for collisions in 2017.
The Belle II detector, located at the SuperKEKB interaction point, will be...

### Physics Group Meeting - IAS - Discussion group led by Masahito Yamazaki, IAS

Wed, May 25, 2016, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm

Description: I will discuss the discrete Liouville theory and its connection with cluster algebras, Teichmuller theory and supersymmetric gauge theories.
References:
The version of discrete Liouville I discuss has been formulated by many papers by Faddeev, Volkov, Takhajan, Kashaev. A good starting point is:

Wed, May 18, 2016, 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

About ten years ago, a new electronic material appeared – notable not only for its ease of preparation and theoretical simplicity, but also by its promise for future electronic devices. Single monatomic sheets of carbon, known as graphene, are described as weakly interacting massless Dirac fermions and in many ways, are a textbook system to test...
