Speaker: Silviu Pufu Princeton University Title: Warped throats get excited: Green's functions and normal modes Abstract: Generalized deformed conifolds (Stenzel spaces) are Ricci flat (2d-2)-dimensional manifolds embedded in C^d through the equation \sum_{i = 1}^d z_i^2 = \epsilon^2. In this talk, I will describe how to use the O(d)…

Speaker: Noppadol Mekareeya Imperial college, London Title: Chiral Operators on Hypermultiplet Moduli Spaces Abstract: This talk will focus on hypermultiplet moduli spaces of various N=2 supersymmetric gauge theories in (3+1)d. In the first part of the talk, we discuss the moduli space of instantons on C^2. For the classical groups, the…

Speaker: Aninda Sinha Perimeter Institute Title: c-theorems in Higher Derivative Gravity Abstract: I will discuss c-theorems in the context of AdS/CFT in higher derivative gravity theories. I will focus mainly on D=3 and D=4. I will show that in D=3, demanding the existence of a simple c-function leads to the recently constructed new…

Speaker: William Rubens Imperial college, London Title: The Black Hole / Qubit Correspondence Abstract: We present the evidence for an emerging mathematical correspondence between black holes and qubits. We first introduce the relevant parts of quantum information theory and entanglement theory. We then show how the entropy and…

Speaker: Leonardo Rastelli Prof. at Stony Brook and YITP Title: Integrability of N=2 Superconformal QCD in the Veneziano Limit Abstract: ``The ${\cal N}=2$ SYM theory with gauge group SU(N) and 2N fundamental hypermultiplets (N=2 SuperConformal QCD for short) is perhaps the simplest 4d gauge theory outside the ``universality class'' of …
