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.

Speaker(s): 

In this talk I investigate the
"firewall argument", that claims that black hole horizons can
not be smooth.

Using
a holographic model of the black hole horizon as a quantum mechanical
membrane, I  show how 

to
recover the black hole interior as an emergent
smooth region of space-time. The reconstruction makes 

use
of the formalism of quantum error correcting codes. I explain
why the horizon of very old black holes

Speaker(s): 

We apply CMB lensing techniques to large scale structure
and solve for the 3-D cosmic tidal field. We use small scale filamentary
structures to solve for the large scale tidal shear and gravitational
potential.
