Physics Calendar

The Physics calendar contains High Energy Theory events hosted by the Institute for Advanced Study and Princeton University. A condensed version of the calendar is sent to the general Physics mailing list on Friday afternoons. Reminder emails are sent the morning of the event. If you are a local faculty member, postdoc or graduate student and would like to be added to the general Physics mailing list, please contact Lisa Fleischer, lisa@ias.edu

IAS CMT/QFT Group Meeting

In Search of an Organizing Principle for Quantum Hall Systems
Gerardo Ortiz
11:00am|Bloomberg Lecture Hall (IAS)

Abstract: I will describe connections between ground states of quantum Hall Hamiltonians with multiple-Landau-level orbitals, whose excitations display either Abelian or non-Abelian braiding statistics, and  (non-holomorphic) symmetric polynomials...

Princeton University Gravity Initiative Seminar Series

Bob in a Black Hole, or: On Decoherence from Horizons
Sam Gralla
12:30pm|Princeton University, Jadwin Hall, Princeton Gravity Initiative, 4th Floor

Abstract: Recently it was shown that black holes impart a fundamental rate of decoherence on all nearby quantum superpositions [Danielson, Satishchandran, Wald (DSW) 2022], eventually erasing all quantum information in their vicinity.  The effect can...

PU High Energy Theory Seminar

A (non-)Worldsheet Description of Strings in AdS and Flux Compactifications
Minjae Cho
2:30pm|Jadwin Hall, PCTS Room 407

Abstract: For backgrounds with known exact worldsheet theory descriptions, ordinary string perturbation theory can be employed to study observables such as spectrum and scattering. However, the majority of interesting string backgrounds, including...

IAS Amplitudes Group Meeting

S-matrix Positivity without Lorentz Invariance: A Case Study
Ioanna Kourkoulou
2:30pm|Bloomberg Lecture Hall (IAS)

Abstract: In this work we attempt to understand the analytic structure of amplitudes in theories with broken Lorentz invariance. To this end, we use as an example a UV complete model for relativistic superfluids - a complex scalar theory with quartic...
