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.

As an alternative to the Holographic Renormalization procedure, we

introduce a regularization scheme for AdS gravity based on the addition

boundary terms which are a given polynomial of the extrinsic and

intrinsic curvatures (Kounterterms).

Since these terms are closely related to either topological invariants

or Chern-Simons densities in the corresponding dimension, they can be

easily generalized to other gravity theories (Einstein-Gauss-Bonnet,

Lovelock, etc.).

The Higgs boson was discovered at the LHC more than two years ago.

So far, the LHC data is consistent with the Standard Model (SM)

predictions. Given its increased rate in the next run of the LHC

with a center-of-mass energy of 14 TeV, double Higgs production will

become an important channel in the search for deviations from the SM

due to new heavy particles. The study of double Higgs production is

also important for understanding the structure of the scalar potential.

The mass of a black hole has traditionally been identified with its energy. We describe a new perspective on black hole thermodynamics, one that identifies the mass of a black hole with chemical enthalpy, and the cosmological constant as thermodynamic pressure. This leads to an understanding of black holes from the viewpoint of chemistry, in terms of concepts such as Van derWaals fluids, reentrant phase transitions, and triple points. Both charged and rotating

black holes exhibit novel chemical-type phase behaviour, hitherto unseen.
