Video Library

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.

In quantum cosmology wave functions are traditionally generated either from path integrals or from solving the Wheeler-DeWitt equation. In the first part of the talk I discuss what is required in these approaches in order to meet the usual requirements of Hilbert space quantum mechanics, namely, the specification of an inner product structure and classes of states and operators of interest.

Carefully studying the singularity structure of the moduli space of vacua of super conformal field theories, provides an incredibly powerful tool to extract information about such theories. In particular I will outline a concrete, yet technically challenging, strategy to go about carrying out a classification for SCFTs with extended supersymmetry in 4d.

Contemporary final theories consist of a theory of the universe’s dynamics (I) like the avatars of string theory together with a theory of its quantum state (Ψ) like the no-boundary wave function of the universe (NBWF). This talk is concerned with the definition of a no-boundary quantum state at the semiclassical level where its predictions can be straightforwardly derived and compared with observation. A semiclassical no-boundary wave function is defined by an ensemble regular saddle points. The ensemble is restricted by simple considerations of symmetry such as time neutrality.
