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.

There are many situations in cosmology that
motivate the study of scalar fields with higher-derivative actions. The best-known
such situations are probably k-inflation (with DBI-inflation being a special
case) and models based on galileon theories, but even eternal inflation and
cyclic universes provide good reasons to study such theories. After an extended
discussion of the motivations, I will show how scalar field theories with
higher derivatives can be constructed in (minimal, 4-dimensional) supergravity,

We shall follow the
growth of probability theory and applications from the 1650s onwards, in
parallel with the development of statistical inference.  Bayesian,
Neyman-Pearson hypothesis testing and Fisherian likelihood methods will all be
covered, with an emphasis on relating theory to a wide range of
applications.   Practical sessions will use SciPy and feature
closed-form solutions, iterative and Monte Carlo simulation methods

The
phenomenological Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (pMSSM) provides a broad
perspective on supersymmetric phenomenology. We have generated two large sets
of pMSSM models with neutralino and gravitino LSPs, with sparticle masses
extending up to 4 TeV. In this talk, I will discuss the implications of
searches for supersymmetry and the Higgs, with particular attention to
naturalness. In particular, we find that while sparticle spectra with
moderately light stops are still allowed, such stops are difficult to find

The question of finite range gravity, or equivalently,
whether graviton can have a non-zero mass, has been one of the major challenges
in classical field theory for the last 70 years.
