Prospects for Observing Exoplanets in the Coming Years with JWST

11:30 am – 12:30 pm (CDT)Hawking Auditorium

Speaker: Caroline Morley (University of Texas, Austin)Host: Stephanie Ho

As exoplanet astronomers, we currently stand at a threshold: with current and near-future discoveries from TESS, we have now discovered many of the nearby planets we share our neighborhood with. The Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes, as well as dedicated ground-based efforts, have provided a taste of the diversity of atmospheres these worlds have. The... read more  »

Linearized Supergeometry of 11D,N =1⁄8 Superspace

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm (CDT)MIST M108

Speaker: Anindya Sengupta (Texas A&M University)Host: Falk Hassler

In 1978, Cremmer, Julia, and Scherk wrote down a (component) theory of eleven-dimensional Supergravity. Soon, in 1980, Brink and Howe gave a superspace formulation of this theory. The component theory required that dynamical fields to be on-shell for the closure of 11D,N=1 Supersymmetry. The same on-shell requirement followed from the Bianchi identities... read more  »

Black Holes in the Early Universe

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Hawking Auditorium

Speaker: Dan Hooper (University of Chicago)Host: Doojin Kim

Cosmology textbooks typically assume that the early universe was dominated by relativistic particles. But if even a relatively small number of black holes were created after inflation, they would make up an increasingly large fraction of the total energy density as space expands. I’ll argue that it is well-motivated to scenarios in which the early uni... read more  »

Reasons to Remain Excited About WIMPs

4:00 pm – 5:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Dan Hooper (Fermilab and University of Chicago)Host: Louis Strigari

Although weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) have long been the leading class of candidates for the dark matter of our universe, the lack of a confirmed detection of these particles has left many in the scientific community increasingly skeptical of their existence. In this talk, I will ask the following questions: How surprised should we be th... read more  »

Worldsheet Correlators in AdS3

3:00 pm – 4:00 pm (CDT)Streaming Live

Speaker: Lorenz Eberhardt (Institute for Advanced Study)Host: Falk Hassler

We revisit the computation of string correlation functions in AdS3 with pure NS-NS flux from a worldsheet point of view. These correlators contain all the perturbative information about the spacetime CFT and the existence of winding strings in AdS3 makes them very rich. We propose a solution to the problem of computing these correlators. The winding cor... read more  »

Localization and delocalization in kicked quantum matter

4:00 pm (CDT)MPHY 213

Speaker: David Weld (UCSB)Host: Ar. Abanov

A sizable fraction of the vast field of condensed matter physics consists of the exploration of the effects of spatial periodicity on quantum mechanics.  It is now widely recognized that the effects of temporal periodicity give rise to a related array of phenomena, and that the interplay of temporal and spatial periodicity with many-body interactio... read more  »
