Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. Recordings of events in these areas are all available On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA). PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.
We will discuss a (conjectural) explicit presentation for the equivariant cohomology of Nakajima quiver varieties of type ADE. This presentation arises as a shadow of the expected symplectic duality between slices to Schubert varieties in the affine Grassmannian and Nakajima quiver varieties (a.k.a. the expected Coulomb and Higgs branches for a quiver gauge theory).
We studied a holographic superconductor model with a momentum relaxation by employing a linear massless scalar field, which is expected to play a role of impurity via holographic correspondence. By fixing a ratio of impurity/chemical potential, we observed the complex scalar field condensation depending on temperature and computed an electric, thermoelectric, and thermal conductivities.
How may we quantify the value of physical resources, such as entangled quantum states, heat baths or lasers? Existing resource theories give us partial answers; however, these rely on idealizations, like the concept of perfectly independent copies of states used to derive conversion rates. As these idealizations are impossible to implement in practice, such results may be of little consequence for experimentalists.
