Video Library

Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, public outreach events such as talks from top scientists 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 and 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 

Accessibly by anyone with internet, Perimeter aims to share the power and wonder of science with this free library.

In this talk, I describe some very simple but significant phenomena predicted by quantum theory. These are described simply in terms of what is observed in the laboratory, without making any presumptions about what sort of microscopic picture of reality might account for these observations.

It is an open question why gravity is so much weaker than the other three interactions we know. One possible answer which has been suggested is that this mismatch is only apparently so, and a feature we observe on large distances.

The Origin of the Large Scale Structure is one of the key issue in Cosmology.
A plausible assumption is that structures grow via gravitational amplification
and collapse of density fluctuations that are small at early times.
The growth history of cosmological fluctuations is a fundamental observable
which helps in hunting for evidences of new physics, currently missing from our picture
of the universe, but potentially crucial to explain its past, present and future history.
I'll show how we investigated if the gradual growth of structures observed
