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 arXiv.org. 

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

I will describe numerical simulations of quenches in AdS-CMT superconductors  where we are able to construct a dynamical phase diagram for the system. I will describe how the late time behaviour is
understood in terms of the quasinormal modes of the system, and how a rather generic behaviour of the pole structure there leads to interesting physical consequences that have an analog in condensed matter calculations using integrable models.

Superradiance in black hole physics is responsible for a chief number of interesting and spectacular effects. Here I will discuss some attempts at understand the behavior of massive bosonic fields around rotating black holes, with focus on superradiance.

In the context of the possible existence of large extra dimensions, and also the context of the AdS-CFT correspondence, there has been much interest in black holes solutions in theories of gravity and matter that are exotic - they might live in spacetime dimension other than 4, or have exotic matter and boundary conditions. I will review the types of physics that are accessible by studying such exotic black holes, ranging from LHC phenomenology to potential applications to condensed matter physics (via the AdS-CFT correspondence). One common theme is that traditional analytic methods

It is well known that superradiance can extract energy from a black hole and, in an asymptotically global AdS background, it drives the black hole unstable. The onset of superradiance also signals a bifurcation to a new family of AdS black holes in a phase diagram of stationary solutions. We construct non-linearly the hairy black holes, solitons and boson stars associated to scalar superradiance. We present both charged and rotating solutions with scalar hair. In the charged case, the structure of phase diagram varies considerably, depending on the charge of the condensate.
