Abstract:  TBA
 

Speaker(s):

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 | Senthil Todadri, Massachusetts Institute of Technology | “Compressible Quantum Matter: General Constraints, Emergent Symmetries, and Anomalies” | via Zoom

Mon, Oct 12, 2020, 2:30 pm

Abstract: I will discuss properties of phases of matter in systems with a global U(1) symmetry and a (possibly discrete) translation symmetry.

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.

Gravity Group Seminar | Javier Romualdez, Steven Benton, and Steven Li (Princeton University), "An Introduction to SuperBIT & GigaBIT: The Ups and Downs of Balloon-borne Optical Astrophysics"

Fri, Oct 2, 2020, 12:00 pm

The Super-pressure Balloon-borne Imaging Telescope (SuperBIT) is the first-of-its-kind, three-axis stabilized, high-resolution, wide-field imager designed to provide weak lensing measurements in near-UV to near-IR bands (300–1000 nm).

Hamilton Colloquium Series, Leonid Mirny, MIT, "Physics of Your Chromosomes" via Zoom

Thu, Oct 1, 2020, 12:00 pm

DNA of the human genome is 2 meters long and is folded into chromosomes that fit in a 10-micron cellular nucleus. I will discuss physical principles that govern folding of long DNA molecules, including phase separation, topological effects in polymer systems, and non-equilibrium phenomena.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.

Speaker(s):

PGI Virtual Seminar Series | Elias Most "Neutron star mergers: On the impact of high spins in multi-messenger gravitational wave events"

Biophysics Seminar: Gurol Suel, University of California San Diego| The role of inorganic ions in bacterial resilience

Mon, Sep 28, 2020, 12:15 pm

We have been working to measure and understand how ion fluxes and ionic interactions regulate fundamental biological processes, and in particular promote stress tolerance in bacteria. I will present our recent work that builds on our discovery of action potentials generated within bacterial biofilms.

Audience: A free lecture open to the public.
Speaker(s):

HET Seminar | Oscar Varela, Utah State University | "AdS4/CFT3 Squashed, Stretched, Warped and Invaded" | via Zoom

Fri, Sep 25, 2020, 1:45 pm

The spectrum of single-trace operators of holographic CFTs at strong coupling and large N can be mapped to the spectrum of Kaluza-Klein modes over the dual AdS supergravity solutions.

Speaker(s):

Gravity Group Seminar | Paul Steinhardt, "Cosmological Bounces and Bouncing Cosmology"

Fri, Sep 25, 2020, 12:00 pm

The talk will introduce the group working on cosmological theories in which the big bang is replaced by a smooth, non-singular bounce and the large-scale properties of the universe are explained by a period of slow contraction that precedes the bounce.
