Upcoming Seminars



High Energy seminar: "Entanglement entropy in (1+1)-d with defects"

Fei Yan
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3C6

In this talk I will explore perspectives of quantum entanglement in (1+1)-d systems in presence of defects. The talk consists of two parts. In the first part, I will talk about the…



Astrophysics seminar: "TBA"

Helena Domínguez Sánchez (Institute of Space Sciences)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4C6



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…



High Energy seminar: "TBA"

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



Rittenhouse Lecture: "TBA"

Julianne Dalcanton (Flatiron Institute)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Past Seminars



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "Ultrafast manipulation of electronic interactions in quantum materials"

Matteo Mitrano (Harvard University)

Nov 30, 2022 - Nov 23, 2022 at - - See Zoom link

Intense ultrashort electromagnetic fields are an increasingly important tool to realize and control novel emergent phases in quantum materials. Among a variety of nonthermal excitation pathways, a…



Astrophysics seminar: "TBA"

Grace Telford (Rutgers University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 4C6



High Energy seminar: "Light states and the interior of moduli space"

Damian van de Heisteeg (Utrecht University)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3C6

In string theory one finds that states become massless as one approaches boundaries in moduli spaces. In this talk we look in the opposite direction, that is, we search for points where the…



High Energy seminar: "TBA"

Baurzhan Mukhametzhanov (IAS)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, 3C6



Condensed and Living Matter Seminar: "TBA"Many-body physics and self-organization with atoms and photons"

Ana Asenjo-Garcia, Columbia University
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A8

Dissipation and fluctuations are known to be sources of order in complex non-linear systems formed by many agents, as they lead to the generation of self-organized spatial or temporal structures. However…
