PIRSA:07120017  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
A quantum view on locality, realism and information.
Speaker(s): Tomasz Paterek
Abstract: First, a brief description of Bell's theorem will be given. It states states that there is no classical-like (local realistic) description of all quantum predictions. Next, a plausible class of non-local realistic models will be presented which is incompatible with quantum mechanics, as first shown... read more

Cosmic Acceleration and Weak Gravitational Lensing

PIRSA:07120020  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Warped extra dimensions and partial compositeness
Speaker(s): Brian Batell
Abstract: Strong gauge dynamics can be given a holographic description in terms of a warped extra dimension. In particular, Randall-Sundrum models with bulk fields are dual to Standard Model partial compositeness. We identify a holographic basis of 4D fields that allows for a quantitative description of the e... read more

Enhanced Radiative Corrections to Supersymmetric Relations
Speaker(s): John Mason

PIRSA:07120022  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Cosmic Strings from Supersymmetric Flat Directions
Speaker(s): David Morrissey
Abstract: Cosmic strings are non-trivial configurations of scalar (and vector) fields that are stable on account of a topological conservation law. They can be formed in the early universe as it cools after the Big Bang. The scalar fields required to form cosmic strings arise naturally if Nature is supersym... read more

PIRSA:07120023  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Higgs Effective Field Theories for LHC
Speaker(s): Michael Trott
Abstract: We demonstrate a number of effective field theory constructions developed to capture the effects of new physics on the Higgs sector of the standard model. We demonstrate that as the self couplings of the Higgs could be significantly effected by new physics, novel phenomenology such as a two Hi... read more

PIRSA:07120024  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Entangling Power of an Expanding Universe
Speaker(s): Nicolas Menicucci
Abstract: Quantum fields in the Minkowski vacuum are entangled with respect to local field modes. This entanglement can be swapped to spatially separated quantum systems using standard local couplings. A single, inertial field detector in the exponentially expanding (de Sitter) vacuum responds as if it were b... read more

PIRSA:07120025  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Phase transition of computational power of measurement-based quantum computer
Speaker(s): Akimasa Miyake
Abstract: One of the most significant questions in quantum information is about the origin of the computational power of the quantum computer; namely, from which feature of quantum mechanics and how does the quantum computer obtain its superior computational potential compared with the classical computer? In... read more

PIRSA:07120034  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Gravitons and black holes in loop quantum gravity.
Speaker(s): Leonardo Modesto
Abstract: In the first part of the talk we introduce a technique to compute large scale correlations in LQG and spinfoam models. Using this formalism we calculate some components of the graviton propagator and of the n-points function. In the second part we apply the ideas suggested by LQG to the black hole ... read more
