Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, has been named the 2018 recipient of the Richard E. Prange Prize and Lectureship in Condensed Matter Theory and Related Areas. The prize recognizes Maldacena’s 1997 theoretical discovery of a deep...
Approximately 166 graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from 76 different institutions, representing 21 countries, will participate in “From Qubits to Spacetime,” the theme of Prospects in Theoretical Physics (PiTP) 2018, an intensive two-week summer program of the Institute for Advanced Study to be held July...
The Strings 2018 conference, which convened international experts and researchers to discuss string theory, took place from June 25–29, 2018, in Okinawa, Japan. The annual international Strings conferences, which have been held every year since 1995, are focal points in the field, with scientists from...
"My goal is that by understanding the interior of the black hole we understand the universe to be like a cosmology: because the interior of the black hole is like a collapsing universe and by understanding that, we can perhaps be able to understand the...
Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, is the recipient of the 2018 Albert Einstein Medal, awarded annually by the Albert Einstein Society in Bern to honor individuals for outstanding scientific findings related to Einstein. Maldacena is recognized...
Philip Perry of Big Think asks, "What's our position in the universe?" Referencing the work of Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, and former Members in the School Daniel Louis Jafferis , Leonard Susskind...
Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, and Member Douglas Stanford will give the public lecture “ The Cool Alter-Ego of a Black Hole ,” on Friday, May 4 , which will take...
The Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences has awarded the Lorentz Medal to Juan Maldacena, Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, for his seminal contribution to the understanding of the quantum physics of black holes. The medal, which will be...
“It’s not easy being a 'theory of everything.' A TOE has the very tough job of fitting gravity into the quantum laws of nature in such a way that, on large scales, gravity looks like curves in the fabric of space-time, as Albert Einstein described...
Recent findings on traversable wormholes by physicists including former Members Daniel Jafferis and Aron Wall inspired by the ER = EPR conjecture posed by Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg Professor in the School of Natural Sciences, and Leonard...
Grand ideas have a way of turning up in unusual settings, far from an office or a chalkboard. Months ago, Quanta Magazine set out to photograph some of the world’s most accomplished scientists and mathematicians, including Juan Maldacena , Carl P. Feinberg...
