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.

Speaker(s): 

What happens when we run out of cheap energy and what lessons are we
learning along the way? Energy experts participate in a moderated
discussion presented live on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin. Speakers include: Vaclav Smil, Zoë Caron, Marlo Raynolds, Robin Batterham, and Alán Aspuru-Guzik

Speaker(s): 

Energy transitions: a future without fossil energies is desirable,
and it is eventually inevitable, but the road from today's
overwhelmingly fossil-fueled civilization to a new global energy system
based on efficient conversions of renewable flows will be neither fast
nor cheap.
Distinguished Professor and author Vaclav Smil explores technological
transitions of past, present and future that are critical for
understanding how to shift to a low carbon future.

This plenary session examines today’s emerging energy technologies as
well as the challenges associated with meeting global demand as we move
toward an increasingly electrified energy system. Speakers include: Jay
Apt, Yacine Kadi, Craig Dunn, and Greg Naterer

 

Dimanche juin 05, 2011

If we are to advance technological systems for a low carbon and
electrified future, how do we measure progress? Through animated videos
and a panel discussion with energy experts, this kick-off session
introduces some of the technological challenges and implementation
hurdles to be overcome if we are to meet our future electricity needs.
Speakers include:Barry Brook, Walt Patterson, Jatin Nathwani, and Robin Batterham

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of
Canada, officially launches the Equinox Summit: Energy 2030 with a
challenge for Summit participants, as well as those across the globe, to
inspire innovation through intense collaboration and explore tools and
strategies to lessen our impact on the Earth.

Speaker(s): 

The gauge/gravity duality may give a nonperturbative formulation of superstring/M theory, and hence, if one can study the nonperturbative dynamics of the gauge theory, it would be useful to understand the nonperturbative aspects of superstring theory.

Speaker(s): 

I belong to the lucky generation who survived World War Two and
unexpectedly found ourselves alive and young at the dawn of four
simultaneous revolutions. We were present at the creation of four new
technologies that were to continue transforming the world for the
following sixty-five years. First revolution, Space, beginning with the
first spacecraft, the V2 rocket, which came crashing down on our heads
in London in the last year of the war. Second revolution, Nuclear

Tensor network algorithms are a powerful technique for the study of quantum systems in condensed matter physics. In this short series of lectures, I will present an applied perspective on tensor network algorithms.

Though the observed CMB is at very low energy, it encodes ultra high-energy physics in spatial variations of the photon temperature and polarization fluctuations. This effect is believed to be dominated by the initial quantum state of the Universe. I will describe the first theoretical tools by which to construct such a state from fundamental physics.
