The Planet Within: Caves from Earth to Mars and Beyond
Speaker(s): Penelope Boston
Abstract: We can set foot on faraway planets, in a sense, by exploring the world beneath ourfeet. Underground caves provide unique insights into what we might find beneathalien landscapes. We are studying caves on Earth to understand how theyform, the spectacular minerals they produce, and the unusual creatur... read more

The National Ignition Facility: Pathway to Energy Security and Physics of the Cosmos
Speaker(s): Edward Moses
Abstract: The National Ignition Facility (NIF), at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, is the world’s most energetic laser system. NIF is capable of producing over 1.8 MJ and 500 TW of ultraviolet light, 100 times more than any other operating laser. By concentrating intense la... read more

The Unreasonable Effectiveness Of Quantum Physics in Modern Mathematics
Speaker(s): Robbert Dijkgraaf
Abstract: Mathematics has proven to be "unreasonably effective" in understanding nature. The fundamental laws of physics can be captured in beautiful formulae. In this lecture I want to argue for the reverse effect: Nature is an important source of inspiration for mathematics, even of the purest kind. In rece... read more

From the Mathematics of Supersymmetry to the Music of Arnold Schoenberg
Speaker(s): S. James Gates Jr.
Abstract: The concept of supersymmetry, though never observed in nature, has driven a great deal of research in theoretical physics over the past several decades. Much has been learned through this research, but many unresolved questions remain. This presentation will describe how these questions can lead one... read more

Quantum Entanglement and Superconductivity
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: Einstein called it “spooky action at a distance.” Entanglement is a counterintuitive feature of quantum theory by which two particles are deeply correlated even when separated by vast distances, such that a measurement of one particle instantaneously determines the state of another. Remarkably, ... read more

Interstellar Voyaging
Speaker(s): Cameron Smith
Abstract: Interstellar Voyaging The discovery of countless exoplanets and new ideas in propulsion physics have resurrected international interest in the ancient concept of humanity traveling far beyond Earth. Such voyages will take place over many generations, requiring careful attention to both biological... read more

Kendrick Smith, Perimeter Institute
Speaker(s): Kendrick Smith
Abstract: Cosmology in the 21st Century Revolutionary progress has been achieved in the science of cosmology over the past 30 years. Powerful experiments, made possible by new technologies, have transformed our understanding of the universe. We have unveiled the laws of physics that govern time and space o... read more
