Upcoming HET and HEE Seminars



High Energy Theory Seminar: Testing Beyond Slow-Roll Inflation Across Large and Small Cosmic Scales

Matteo Braglia (NYU)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Inflation is widely recognized as the leading theory for explaining the origin of the Big Bang. While the simplest slow-roll models predict a nearly scale-invariant spectrum of primordial density perturbations,…



High Energy Theory Seminar: "TBA"

Chris Pope (Manhattan Institute)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Past HET and HEE Seminars



High Energy Theory Seminar: Integrability and Hidden Symmetries in Black Hole Dynamics

Uri Kol (Harvard University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

The last decade has produced a number of remarkable discoveries, such as the first direct observation of gravitational waves by the LIGO/Virgo collaboration and the first black hole image taken by the…



High Energy Theory Seminar: "TBA"

Lorenzo Ricci (University of Maryland)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2



High Energy Theory Seminar: 5D SCFTs, Brane Webs, GTPs, Quivers and Geometry

Sebastian Franco (CUNY)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

String/M-Theory provides various approaches for constructing 5d Superconformal Field Theories, most notably geometric engineering via M-theory on toric Calabi-Yau 3-folds and webs of (p,q) 5-branes in Type IIB String…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Topological defects on the worldsheet

Konstantinous Roumpedakis (Johns Hopkins University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

In this talk, I will discuss the implications of non-invertible topological defects on the worldsheet. I will consider two different setups where such defects arise in string theory. The first setup is toroidal…



Experimental Particle Physics: Searching for Exotic and Rare Physics Processes with Liquid Argon Time Projection Chamber Detectors

Daisy Kalra (Columbia University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3W2

Neutrinos are some of the most abundant but elusive particles in the universe. The groundbreaking discovery of neutrino oscillations, recognized by the 2015 Nobel Prize, revealed the existence of non-zero neutrino…
