Celestial Amplitudes from Flat Space Limits of AdS/Witten Diagrams
August 29, 2022 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Celestial Amplitudes from Flat Space Limits of AdS/Witten Diagrams

Speaker: Ana Raclariu (Perimeter Institute)Host: Aritra Saha

The search for pragmatic observables of quantum gravity remains at the forefront of fundamental physics research. A large set of ideas collectively known as the gauge-gravity duality have proven fruitful in tackling this problem. While such a duality is believed to universally govern gravitational theories, its nature in theories of [...]
Type IIB flux Compactifications with h^{1,1}=0
September 12, 2022 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Type IIB flux Compactifications with h^{1,1}=0

Speaker: Timm Wrase (Lehigh University)Host: Katrin Becker

I revisit type IIB flux compactifications that are mirror dual to type IIA on rigid Calabi-Yau manifolds. We found a variety of interesting new solutions, like infinite families of Minkowski vacua and infinite families of AdS_4 solutions with arbitrarily large numbers of spacetime filling D3 branes. I will discuss how [...]
Trivially-Acting Symmetries as Topological Operators
September 19, 2022 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Trivially-Acting Symmetries as Topological Operators

Speaker: Thomas Vandermeulen (Texas A&M University)Host: Katrin Becker

The modern view of symmetries is that they should be regarded as topological operators which act on the states of a theory.  We show that this formulation can be extended to trivially-acting symmetries, which are naturally described as a mix of line and point operators.  This allows us to refine [...]
Dynamics of Spinning Binaries From an Effective Field Theory Perspective
September 26, 2022 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm (CDT) MIST M102
Dynamics of Spinning Binaries From an Effective Field Theory Perspective

Speaker: Radu Roiban (Penn State University)Host: Ergin Sezgin

The general relativistic two-body dynamics is a subject of great theoretical and practical interest in light of the ongoing observations of gravitational waves by the LIGO/Virgo observatories.  In recent years the classical limit of quantum scattering amplitudes provided a means to establish the state of the art in the weak-field [...]
