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.

After reviewing its structure and discussing the twistor-like origin of the pure spinor formalism, I will speculate on possible applications for AdS_5xS^5 and M-theory

In an approach to quantum gravity where space-time arises from coarse graining of fundamentally discrete structures, black hole formation and subsequent evaporation could be described by a unitary evolution without the problems encountered by standard remnant scenarios or the schemes where information is assumed to come out with the radiation while semiclassical evaporation (firewalls and complementarity).

The operator formalism provides a constructive approach to superstring amplitudes that has two main virtues: it makes it possible to study explicitly all the degeneration limits and it is flexible enough to work in different setups. I will illustrate these two features in a concrete example: the twisted open string partition function at two loops, which describes the interactions between three D-branes in type II theories.

The conventional on-shell techniques of computing string theory amplitudes is not sufficient to compute mass renormalization of massive states and vacuum shift in string theory. The aim of this talk is to define a suitable off-shell continuation of Polyakov approach. Then this off-shell continuation will be used to compute mass-renormalization and perturbative vacuum shift in string theory.
