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.

Three-dimensional fluids with nontrivial vorticity can be described holographically. It is well-known that the Kerr-AdS geometry gives rise to a 'cyclonic' flow. Lorentzian Taub--NUT--AdS_4 geometries give rise to a rotating fluid with vortex flow.

The boundary conditions of general black holes in asymptotically flat spacetimes can be modified such that a conformal symmetry emerges. The black holes with asymptotic geometry modified in this manner satisfy the equations of motion of minimal supergravity in one dimension more. Their symmetry suggests that a dual conformal field theory description exists that can account for the black hole entropy even in the case of black holes that are far from extremality.
