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.

It is my contention that non-commutative geometry is really "ordinary geometry" carried out in a non-commutative logic. I will sketch a specific project, relating groupoid C*-algebras to toposes, by means of which I hope to detect the nature of this non-commutative logic.

I briefly introduce the recently introduced idea of relativity of locality, which is a
consequence of a non-flat geometry of momentum space. Momentum space
can acquire nontrivial geometrical properties due to quantum gravity effects.
I study the relation of this framework with noncommutative geometry, and the
Quantum Group approach to noncommutative spaces. In particular I'm interested
in kappa-Poincaré, which is a Quantum Group that, as shown by Freidel and Livine,
in the 1+1D case emerges as the symmetry of effective field theory coupled with

We investigate the use of the embedding formalism and the Mellin transform in the calculation of tree-level conformal correlation functions in $AdS$/CFT.

Speaker(s): 

The development of virial mass estimates for the central black hole using one quasar spectrum has allowed a dramatic improvement in our understanding of supermassive black hole evolution. I will describe several new puzzles arising from the combination of virial masses with luminosity and redshift measurements, many of which are inconsistent with our current understanding of quasar evolution. I will also describe a new class of quasars that does not appear to fit easily into current models for quasar accretion.
