DescriptionPedro will lead a minicourse (no credit) at Perimeter Institute. To express your interest in attending please complete this registration form (https://forms.office.com/r/nDQ6SDxSR4) by noon on Thursday, October 3.
Pedro has selected 9 papers for this minicourse.
Infrared Photons and Gravitons by Weinberg, 1965
Determination of an Operator Algebra for the 2D Ising Model by Kadanoff and Ceva, 1971
Confinement of Quarks by Wilson, 1974,
Phenomenological Lagrangians by Weinberg, 1979,
Gravitational Effects on and of Vacuum Decay by Coleman and De Luccia, 1980
Classical and Quantum Gravity Effects from Planckian Energy Superstring Collisions by Amati, Ciafaloni and Veneziano, 1987
Quantum Spin Chains and The Haldane Gap by Affleck, 1988
The Large N Limit of SFTs and Supergravity by Maldacena, 1997
Entanglement Entropy and Quantum Field Theory by Calabrese and Cardy, 2008
If you think there are super nice papers that are missing that could be better than some of these in a particular topic please contact Pedro directly (pvieira@perimeterinstitute.ca).
The format will be:
A] Pedro will give a 1h30m lecture about one of these papers on a Monday or a Friday (the Monday or Friday right after B] unless there is a holiday)
B] One week later, X students give a presentation of Y minutes about important recent papers that refer/are related to that paper. At the end of this lecture we give feedback about those presentations. What is X and what is Y depends on how many students volunteer to present. Of course, people who just want to attend without presenting are also most welcome!
Location: Alice Room, 3rd Floor, Perimeter Institute, 31 Caroline St N, Waterloo
Recording/Zoom Details: Lectures will be recorded for PIRSA; Zoom link will be provided to registered participants.
Building Access: Participants who do not have an access card for Perimeter Institute must sign in at the security desk before each session. When attending the lectures you can use the free selfserve coffee/water station on the ground floor. Meals and snacks at the onsite Black Hole Bistro are available at the full menu cost.
