### 41st Annual Donald R. Hamilton Lecture: Gary Horowitz, UC-Santa Barbara, "Strange Views of Space and Time: From Einstein to String Theory"

Our understanding of space and time was revolutionized a hundred years ago by Einstein’s discovery of his special and general theories of relativity. We have recently undergone another dramatic change in our understanding of these fundamental concepts due to advances in string theory.

### High Energy Theory Seminar IAS - David Kosower , IAS, CEA/Saclay- TBA

### Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Kris Sigurdson (IAS) "Gravity as a window onto new particle interactions in the dark Universe"

Gravity's universal coupling to particles and fields makes it our most robust probe of Nature. In the past century it has alerted us to both dark matter and dark energy and our precision gravitational gaze may still have surprises in store.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series - David Snoke, U. Pittsburgh: "Superfluids of light: Bose-Einstein condensation of polaritons in microcavities"

In specially designed solid microcavities, the photon properties can be altered to have effective mass and repulsive interactions; these new states are called "polaritons". The polaritons act like atoms, and because they are bosons, they can undergo Bose-Einstein condensation.

### Special Condensed Matter Seminar, Panagiotis Kotetes, U. of Copenhagen, "Signatures of Majorana fermions in Shiba chains with or without spin-orbit in

### Gravity Group Seminar, Chuck Bennett (Johns Hopkins University) "Cosmic Convergence?"

Do we have a Standard Model of Cosmology that explains all cosmological measurements with six well-specified parameter values? Having recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the CMB, I summarize what we have learned from the CMB (our most powerful cosmological tool) and from combining the CMB with other cosmological data....
