High Energy Theory seminar: "Symmetries of 3d QFTs from M-theory"

Marieke van Beest (Stony Brook University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3C6

I will discuss the 4d Symmetry Topological Field Theory (Symmetry TFT) encoding generalized global symmetries and 't Hooft anomalies of 3d quantum fields theories with an M-theory realization. We will see…

High Energy seminar: "Mass shift in lattice Hamiltonian approach to Schwinger model"

Silviu Pufu (Princeton University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3C6

The Schwinger model, or quantum electrodynamics in 1+1 dimensions, is one of the simplest gauge theories. In this talk, I will first review a standard lattice discretization of this theory using the Kogut…



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "Using Deep Learning as a Last Resort?!"

Shirley Ho (Flatiron Institute)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

For the last 10 years, we have seen a rapid adoption of deep learning techniques across many disciplines, ranging from self-driving vehicles, credit card rating to biomedicine. Along with this wave, we…



Physics and Astronomy Colloquium: "How behavioral and evolutionary constraints sculpt early visual processing"

Stephanie Palmer (University of Chicago)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Biological systems must selectively encode partial information about the environment, as dictated by the capacity constraints at work in all living organisms. For example, we cannot see every feature of…
