Computer Science/Discrete Mathematics Seminar I

On the Approximation Resistance of Balanced Linear Threshold Functions
Aaron Potechin
11:00am | Simonyi Hall 101
Constraint satisfaction problems (CSPs) are a central topic of study in computer science. A fundamental question about CSPs is as follows. Given a CSP where each constraint...

Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]

Identifying AGNs in Low-mass Galaxies via Long-term Optical Variability
Discussion Leader Vivienne Baldassare
11:00am | Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Grand Central
Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series in Peyton Hall with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics. During Galread a...

Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Planet/Exoplanet Discussion Group

The Circumplanetary Disks: The Key for Planet- and Satellite Formation
Judit Szulagyi
12:15pm | Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Room 140
Standard giant planet formation theories cannot reproduce well the observed planet mass distribution. One of the problems is with the third stage of core accretion scenario,...

Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Early Universe/Cosmology Lunch Discussion

Probing the Non-Gaussian Density Field with Clusters of Galaxies
Steffen Hagstotz
12:30pm | Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Dome Room, Room 201
Considerable effort in cosmology today is focused on understanding the statistical nature and evolution of the (dark matter) density field that underlies the observed large-...

Condensed Matter Seminar

Bimetric Theory of Fractional Quantum Hall States
Andrey Gromov
1:15pm | Jadwin Hall, Room A08
Fractional quantum Hall (FQH) states are topologically ordered. Additionally, FQH states support a collective neutral excitation known as the Girvin-MacDonald-Platzman (GMP)...

High Energy Theory Seminar

Virasoro Analytic Bootstrap and the Bound-state Spectrum of 3D Quantum Gravity
Scott Collier
3:00pm | Jadwin Hall, Room A06
Every CFT in dimensions greater than two contains an infinite set of Regge trajectories of local operators which, at large spin, asymptote to "double-twist" composites with...

Joint IAS/Princeton University Algebraic Geometry Seminar

Singular Hodge theory of matroids
Jacob Matherne
5:00pm | Simonyi Hall 101
Kazhdan–Lusztig (KL) polynomials for Coxeter groups were introduced in the 1970s, providing deep relationships among representation theory, geometry, and combinatorics. In...
