### Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Jiaxin Yin | "Tunneling into emergent topological matter"

Wed, Nov 11, 2020, 1:00 pm

The search for topological matter is evolving towards strongly interacting systems including topological magnets and superconductors, where novel effects emerge from the quantum level interplay between geometry, correlation, and topology.

Speaker(s):

### Hamilton Colloquium Series, Monika Schleier-Smith, Stanford University, "Choreographing Quantum Spin Dynamics with Light"

Thu, Nov 5, 2020, 12:00 pm

The power of quantum information lies in its capacity to be non-local, encoded in correlations among two, three, or many entangled particles.  Yet our ability to produce, understand, and exploit such correlations is hampered by the fact that the interactions between particles and ordinarily local.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

### Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Johnpierre Paglione, U of MD | "Exotic superconductivity in nearly ferromagnetic UTe2"

Wed, Nov 4, 2020, 1:00 pm

Topological superconductivity has attracted great interest in condensed matter physics because of its potential applications in quantum computing. Spin-triplet superconductors are one promising class that can host the topological excitations of interest, but experimental realizations are few and far between.

Speaker(s):

### Physics Forum on Applying to Grad School

Tue, Nov 3, 2020, 2:00 pm

The panel will consist of Profs. Page, Petta, Lisanti, and Olsen, who will answer questions and offer advice.

### HET Seminar | Thomas Dumitrescu, UCLA | “2-Group Global Symmetries in Six Dimensions” | via Zoom

Speaker(s):

### PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Jonathan Wing-hong Luk, “Some singular spacetimes in general relativity”

Mon, Nov 2, 2020, 12:30 pm

Abstract: I will describe a few classes of solutions to the Einstein equations whose metrics are singular or highly oscillatory, and discuss the relation between them. The singular solutions include as special examples impulsive gravitational waves and null dust shell solutions.

### Hamilton Colloquium Series, Andrei Beloborodov, Columbia University, "Explosive Neutron Stars"

Thu, Oct 29, 2020, 12:00 pm

Neutron stars are by far the strongest known magnets in the universe. Some of them (called magnetars) generate explosions by suddenly dissipating magnetic energy with a rate up to $10^{47}$ erg/s. These magnetic explosions emit giant gamma-ray flares observed in our and neighboring galaxies.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

### Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Pedram Roushan, Google | " Tuning quantum information scrambling in two-dimensional systems"

Wed, Oct 28, 2020, 1:30 pm

The promise of quantum computers is that certain computational tasks might be executed exponentially faster on a quantum processor than on a classical processor.

### PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Yakov Shlapentokh-Rothman, "Naked Singularities for the Einstein Vacuum Equations: The Exterior Solution"

Mon, Oct 26, 2020, 12:30 pm

Abstract: We will start by recalling the weak cosmic censorship conjecture.  Then we will review Christodoulou's construction of naked singularities for the spherically symmetric Einstein-scalar field system.

### Biophysics Seminar: Allan Drummond, University of Chicago: Rethinking the cellular response to heat shock, from biophysics to physiology| Zoom

Mon, Oct 26, 2020, 12:15 pm

Cells across the tree of life respond to a sudden, nonlethal rise in temperature--heat shock--in similar ways. Following heat shock, proteins and mRNAs form clumps, certain genes turn on, and protein synthesis and cell growth sharply decline.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.
