"Saturons" are macroscopic objects that exhibit maximal
micristate degeneracy within the validity of a given quantum
field theoretic description. Due to this feature, saturons
and black holes belong to the same universality class with common
This is an exciting time for stellar astrophysics as
high-cadence time domain surveys (Gaia, PTF, ZTF, ATLAS, Kepler,
TESS, and, in the near future, the Vera Rubin Observatory) are
revolutionizing the landscape of stellar studies by allowing
Some aspects of the black hole spectrum, coming from spacetime
wormhole contributions, can be modeled by a random matrix ensemble.
It is important to understand the appropriate ensemble for theories
with extended supersymmetry, since for example...
Perhaps the most important problem in physics or quantum
chemistry is to determine properties of the ground state of an
interacting system of fermions. As a quantum mechanical
problem, there may be no efficient classical witness to the ground
The CνB is a cosmological relic analogous to the CMB, and
contains information about the universe before it was
one-second-old. Reflection of relic neutrinos from the surface of
the Earth creates a significant local neutrino-antineutrino
Supersymmetric black holes in Anti de-Sitter space have recently
been shown to have a large number of exactly degenerate
microstates. In the first part of the talk, we will review how AdS5
black hole microstates may be reliably counted in the dual N...
Fast inward migration of planetary cores embedded in gaseous
disks is a common problem in the current planet formation paradigm.
Even though dust is ubiquitous in protoplanetary disks, its
dynamical role in the migration history of planetary embryos...
Driven by gravity, galaxies continuously grow through accretion
of smaller systems. Stellar streams are nice illustrations of this
hierarchical build-up, but the accreted stars quickly disperse. I
will present advanced dynamical models that can...
