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): 

We present a family of three-dimensional local
quantum codes with pairs of fractal logical operators. It has two polynomials
over finite fields as input parameters
which generate fractal shapes of anti-commuting logical operators, and
possesses exotic topological order with quantum glassiness which is beyond
descriptions of conventional topological field theory. A necessary and
sufficient condition for being free from string-like logical operators is
obtained under which the model works as marginally self-correcting quantum

In the context of holography applied to condensed matter
theory, I will present an analysis of transport properties of p-wave
superfluids by means of a gravity dual. Fluctuations modes in the SU(2)
Einstein-Yang-Mills theory are considered, and phenomenological implications
are derived. Due to the spatial anisotropy of the system, a non-universal shear
viscosity is obtained, along with a new coefficient associated to normal stress
differences. I will also discuss how the transport phenomena in this model is
