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.

I will discuss the phenomenologically interesting scenario of matter inflation in supersymmetric hybrid inflation models. The inflaton resides in a gauge non-singlet matter multiplet and the eta-problem is solved by a "Heisenberg" symmetry. This symmetry relates the inflaton with a modulus field and we stabilize this modulus via corrections to the Kähler potential. The Heisenberg symmetry arises naturally for the untwisted matter fields in heterotic orbifolds.

I will first summarize recent exact localization computations of supersymmetric gauge theories, and then discuss curious connections between SUSY/non-SUSY theories coming from 6d (2,0) theories. I particular, I will focus on our recent proposal relating 3d N=2 theories and 3d SL(2,R) Chern-Simons theories (or more mathematically, geometry of 3-manifolds).
