PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Grigorios Fournodavlos, Sorbonne Université "Stable Big Bang formation"

Mon, Feb 8, 2021, 12:30 pm

In this talk we will investigate the past dynamics of cosmological solutions to Einstein's equations, containing a Big Bang singularity. More precisely, we will focus on the classical generalised Kasner examples. The celebrated "singularity'' theorem of Hawking states that the past of sufficiently small perturbations of such solutions are...

Virtual Seminar Series | Sebastiano Bernuzzi (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena) "Modeling the strong-field dynamics of binary neutron star merger"

Mon, Feb 1, 2021, 12:30 pm

 The observation of gravitational and electromagnetic waves from a binary neutron star (BNS) merger in August 2017 conveyed unique information on the nature of matter at supranuclear densities, on the origin of short-gamma ray burst, on the production site of of heavy elements in the Universe, and on cosmography.

Biophysics Seminar: Stephanie Palmer, University of Chicago| How behavioral and evolutionary constraints sculpt early visual processing| Zoom

Mon, Feb 1, 2021, 12:15 pm

An animal eye is only as efficient as the organism’s behavioral constraints demand it to be. Efficient coding has been a successful organizational principle in vision, and to make a more general theory, behavioral, mechanistic, and even evolutionary constraints need to be added to this framework.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Special Seminar / Spacetime wormholes / Henry Maxfield / University of California, Santa Barbara

Mon, Jan 18, 2021, 12:00 pm

Low-energy quantum gravity has recently shown itself to be surprisingly powerful. Gravity provides geometric descriptions of quantum phenomena, with no reference to a UV completion such as string theory.
