Pheno & Vino Seminar | Jan Heisig, CP3 UC Louvain | "Probing dark matter with cosmic-ray antiprotons" Zoom link: bit.ly/phenoandvino

Tue, May 12, 2020, 4:00 pm

Cosmic-ray observations provide a powerful probe of dark-matter annihilation in the Galaxy. In this talk I present recent analyses of the AMS-02 antiproton data, reducing cosmic-ray propagation uncertainties by fitting at the same time dark-matter and cosmic-ray propagation parameters.

FPO - Sonia Zhang - "Topology in Quantum Magnets and Superconductors"

Fri, May 8, 2020, 1:00 pm

A unifying theme in understanding the macroscopic properties of quantum materials is the concept of emergence, where novel effects and unusual phases arise from the interplay of spin-orbit effects, band topology and strong correlation.

Mathematical Physics Seminar: Simone Warzel,TU-Munich, "Spectral Gaps, Incompressibility and Fragmented Matrix-Product State in a Fractional Quantum Hall System"

Tue, May 5, 2020, 2:00 pm

In the thin cylinder regime Haldane’s pseudo-potential corresponding to one-third filling results in a frustration-free fermionic lattice Hamiltonian which is dipole-conserving with an added electrostatic interaction. Its zero-energy eigenspace is exponentially large.

Princeton Gravity Initiative | PCTS Workshop, Exploring Supermassive Black Holes

Mon, May 4, 2020, 8:00 am to Wed, May 6, 2020, 5:00 pm
Unfortunately, due to the rapidly escalating health concerns relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and in an abundance of caution, we have decided to postpone the workshop until October...

Mathematical Physics Seminar: Uzy Smilansky, Weizmann Institute, "Systematics of spectral shifts in random matrix ensembles"

Fri, May 1, 2020, 11:00 am

We chose a $N\times N$ Hermitian matrix randomly picked from one of the  random Gaussian matrix ensembles $(\beta =1,2,4)$ - the reference matrix.

Pheno & Vino / Siddharth Mishra-Sharma, NYU | "Statistical inference of dark matter substructure with weak and strong gravitational lensing" | bit.ly/phenoandvino

Tue, Apr 28, 2020, 4:00 pm

I will describe two separate methods to statistically infer the properties of dark matter substructure using, in turn, (astrometric) weak and strong lensing observations.

Pheno & Vino | Carlos Blanco, U of Chicago | "New Constraints on Dark Matter from Organic Targets: What Organic Chemistry Can do for Direct Detection" | Zoom link: bit.ly/phenoandvino

Tue, Apr 21, 2020, 4:00 pm

As the age of WIMP-scale dark matter (DM) draws to a close thanks to the ever-increasing sensitivity of direct detection experiments, the majority of sub-GeV DM parameter space remains to be explored. Sub-GeV DM can excite electronic transitions in a variety of molecular and nano-scale systems which have sub-eV scale thresholds.
