Abstract: In this talk I will explore the space of solutions to the conformal crossing equations. By recasting the conformal bootstrap as a non-linear optimization problem, we find an efficient way of converging to the solutions of these equations.

### Condensed Matter Seminar - "Interplay of correlations and topology in the narrow bands of twisted bilayer graphene" Oskar Vafek, Florida State University

I will present an overview of the current theoretical understanding of the remarkable phenomenology of the twisted bilayer graphene (TBG) near the magic angle. This includes the early insights obtained using the 2D exponentially localized Wannier basis[1] which revealed a qualitative difference between the effect of the...

### Biophysics Seminar: Andrej Kosmrlj| Princeton University: Pattern formation in biological systems via mechanical instabilities and phase separation

Pattern formation is ubiquitous in biological systems. While pattern formations are often associated with Turing-like reaction-diffusion systems, biology also exploits many other mechanisms such as mechanical instabilities and phase separation.

### FPO - Preethi Pallegar - "Symmetries and Large N Limits of Majorana Fermion Models"

In this thesis, we study generalizations of well-known Majorana fermion models, including the SYK model and the Klebanov-Tarnopolsky tensor model. The models are compared at finite and large N, where we find that the models simplify considerably and can even become solvable.
