PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Yakov Shlapentokh-Rothman, "Naked Singularities for the Einstein Vacuum Equations: The Exterior Solution"

Mon, Oct 26, 2020, 12:30 pm

Abstract: We will start by recalling the weak cosmic censorship conjecture.  Then we will review Christodoulou's construction of naked singularities for the spherically symmetric Einstein-scalar field system.

Biophysics Seminar: Allan Drummond, University of Chicago: Rethinking the cellular response to heat shock, from biophysics to physiology| Zoom

Mon, Oct 26, 2020, 12:15 pm

Cells across the tree of life respond to a sudden, nonlethal rise in temperature--heat shock--in similar ways. Following heat shock, proteins and mRNAs form clumps, certain genes turn on, and protein synthesis and cell growth sharply decline.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Gravity Group Seminar | Status of the Atacama Cosmology Telescope

Fri, Oct 23, 2020, 12:00 pm

Adri Duivenvoorden, Zack Li, Brandon Hensley, Jo Dunkley, and Lyman Page will update us on the status of the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT).

Condensed Matter Zoom Seminar | Dmitri Efetov, ICFO | "Magic Angle Bilayer Graphene - Superconductors, Orbital Magnets, Correlated States and beyond"

Wed, Oct 21, 2020, 1:00 pm

When twisted close to a magic relative orientation angle near 1 degree, bilayer graphene has flat moire superlattice minibands that have emerged as a rich and highly tunable source of strong correlation physics, notably the appearance of superconductivity close to interaction-induced insulating states.

PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Lia Medeiros, IAS "Gravitational Test beyond the First Post-Newtonian Order with the EHT"

Biophysics Seminar: Stefano Allesina, University of Chicago: Predicting coexistence in experimental ecological communities| Zoom

Mon, Oct 19, 2020, 12:15 pm

When experimenting with a large pool of species, a common problem is to determine a priori whether a certain subset of species can coexist when co-cultured. We propose a simple statistical model in which a number of species assemblages are observed, and the coexistence of novel assemblages is predicted out-of-fit.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Grad Life @ Princeton Physics

Fri, Oct 16, 2020, 4:00 pm

Are you considering applying to a physics graduate program? Did you know that you get paid to be a grad student? Ph.D. programs in STEM fields are full-time jobs with all the benefits: no tuition and getting paid to research and learn!

Gravity Group Lunch Seminar, Justin Ripley | DAMTP "Classical modifications to Einstein's General Relativity around black holes"

Fri, Oct 16, 2020, 12:00 pm

In this talk I will discuss recent work on the dynamics of black holes in Einstein dilaton Gauss-Bonnet (EDGB) gravity. This modified gravity theory can be motivated by effective field theory reasoning, and admits scalarized black hole solutions.

High Energy Experiment Seminar-Stephane Cooperstein UCSD-"First Evidence for Higgs Boson Decay to Muons"

Thu, Oct 15, 2020, 2:00 pm

Abstract: Probing the Higgs boson coupling to the muon is one of the last experimentally accessible frontiers in the direct measurement of Higgs boson couplings at the LHC.

HET Seminar | Tarek Anous, University of Amsterdam | "Towards a microscopic model of AdS fragmentation" | via Zoom

Fri, Oct 9, 2020, 1:45 pm

Abstract: A salient feature of black holes near extremality is the appearance of an AdS$_2$ throat in their near-horizon geometry. Depending on the underlying theory, these AdS$_2$ throats may be unstable to fragmentation,  wherein a single throat is instead replaced by a tree-like structure of branched AdS$_2$ throats.
