High Energy Theory Seminar: (g-2)_\mu from lattice QCD and experiments: 4.2 sigma?

Zoltán Fodor (Wuppertal University, Pennsylvania State University, Inst. for Theoretical Physics ELTE Eötvös, and Jülich Supercomputing Centre)
-

Twenty years ago, in an experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory, physicists detected what seemed to be a discrepancy between measurements of the muon’s magnetic moment and theoretical calculations of…



Astronomy Seminar: "The Peril and Promise of Three-Dimensional Planets"

Emily Rauscher (University of Michigan)
-

Much to the consternation of spherical cows everywhere, planets are three-dimensional objects. As we try to measure properties of their atmospheres, it may be inappropriate to pretend…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Inductive Bias of Neural Networks"

Cengiz Pehlevan (Harvard University)
- See Zoom link below

: Predicting a previously unseen example from training examples is unsolvable without additional assumptions about the nature of the task at hand. A learner’s performance depends…



High Energy Theory Seminar: Cohomology/K-theory of Lie groups and matter representations

Mboyo Esole (Northeastern University)
-

It was recently observed that the matter representations in F-theory compactifications overwhelmingly correspond to characteristic representations of Dynkin embedding index one. I will explain how this…



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Uncovering New Transport Regimes and Light-Induced Phases in Quantum Materials "

Margaret Murnane (University of Colorado – Boulder)
- See Zoom link below

High harmonic generation (HHG) is a unique quantum light source with fundamentally new capabilities, by up-converting femtosecond lasers to very short wavelengths. This produces fully spatially and…



Mathematical Biology seminar: "Cancer cells and their epithelial neighbors"

Katrina Podsypanina (Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques [IHES])
- See Zoom link below

I am a cancer researcher working on a framework for a new mathematical model of metastasis



Thesis Defense: “Characterizing the Outer Solar System with the Dark Energy Survey"

Pedro Henrique Bernardinelli (University of Pennsylvania)

High Energy Theory Seminar: The KLT double-copy bootstrap

Henriette Elvang (University of Michigan)
-

The KLT (Kawai, Lewellen, Tye) formula famously maps a product of open string tree amplitudes to closed string tree amplitudes via a kinematic "KLT kernel" that depends on Mandelstam variables and alpha…



High Energy Experiment Seminar: Evidence of the four-top-quark production at the LHC

Nedaa Alexandra Asbah (Harvard)
-

Abstract: A summary of the latest results on the evidence of the four-top-quark production using proton-proton collision data at a centre of-mass…



Astronomy Seminar: How to Find an Earth

Megan Bedell (Flatiron)
-

The detection of an Earth twin (an Earth-mass planet orbiting a Sun-like star within the habitable zone) has recently become feasible for the first time thanks to advances in observational…
