PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Elisa Maggio, University of Rome "Testing the nature of dark compact objects with gravitational waves"

Mon, Apr 26, 2021, 12:30 pm

Gravitational waves from the coalescence of compact binaries provide a unique opportunity to test gravity in the strong field regime. In particular, the postmerger phase of the gravitational signal is a proxy for the nature of the remnant.

Biophysics Seminar: Susanne Still, University of Hawaii at Mānoa| Thermodynamics of information processing| Zoom

Mon, Apr 19, 2021, 4:00 pm

Living systems need to remember information about their environment in order to take decisions that ultimately ensure survival. But storing information about past experiences costs energy, while only a fraction of the vast amount of information available can be useful to the living system.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Claude Warnick, Cambridge University "Quasinormal modes of black holes"

Mon, Apr 19, 2021, 12:30 pm

During its ringdown phase a perturbed black-hole produces radiation at characteristic (complex) frequencies, much like the normal frequencies of a guitar string. These quasinormal frequencies carry information about the geometry of the black hole.

PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Marcelo Disconzi, Vanderbilt University "General-relativistic viscous fluids

Mon, Apr 12, 2021, 12:30 pm

The discovery of the quark-gluon plasma that forms in heavy-ion collision experiments provides a unique opportunity to study the properties of matter under extreme conditions, as the quark-gluon plasma is the hottest, smallest, and densest fluid known to humanity.

Biophysics Seminar: Nikta Fakhri, MIT |Broken symmetries in living matter | Zoom

Mon, Apr 12, 2021, 12:00 pm

Active processes in living systems create a novel class of non-equilibrium material composed of many interacting parts that individually consume energy and collectively generate motion or mechanical stress.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Anna Y. Q. Ho, UC Berkeley "The Landscape of Relativistic Stellar Explosions"

Mon, Apr 5, 2021, 12:30 pm

Abstract: For the last half-century, relativistic outflows accompanying the final collapse of massive stars have predominantly been detected via high-energy emission, as long-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). From wide-field optical and radio time-domain surveys, there have been hints of related phenomena at lower energies, such as X-ray...
