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.

Current approaches to the problems of dark energy and unification generically predict the existence of new fields (quintessence dilatons etc.) that will in principle couple with different strengths to different standard-model fields. These different coupling strengths will cause test materials of different compositions to fall at different rates in the same gravitational field violating the Equivalence Principle the foundation of General Relativity.

Anderson localization - quantum suppression of carrier
diffusion due to disorders - is a basic notion of modern condensed matter
physics. Here I will talk about a novel localization phenomenon totally
contrary to this common wisdom. Strikingly, it is purely of strong interaction
origin and occurs without the assistance of disorders. Specifically, by
combined numerical (density matrix renormalization group) method and analytic
analysis, we show that a single hole injected in a quantum antiferromagnetic

It is known that the entanglement entropy of quantum
fields on the black hole
background contributes to the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy,and that its
divergences can be absorbed into the renormalization of gravitational
couplings. By introducing a Wilsonian cutoff scale and the concepts of
the renormalization group, we can expand this observation
into a broader framework for understanding black hole entropy. At a
given RG scale, two contributions to the black hole entropy can be
