Emergent gravity: lessons from two models
Speaker(s): Lorenzo Sindoni
Abstract: While analogue models for gravity have so far provided some insights on the kinematical aspects of general relativity, the emergence of gravitational dynamics is still unclear. In this talk I will present two models which aim at filling this gap. In the first one a BEC model is considered, to uncove... read more

Black hole entropy in Loop Quantum Gravity
Abstract: I will review the present status of the black hole entropy computation in Loop Quantum Gravity within the isolated horizon framework. Starting from the recently discovered discretization effect, I will give an overview of the subsequent developments that have been obtained motivated by it. Through t... read more

The holographic description of non-relativistic conformal field theories
Speaker(s): Ethan Thompson
Abstract: The AdS/CFT correspondence has recently been extended to field theories satisfying the non-relativistic generalization of conformal symmetry, the Schroedinger symmetry. These holographic descriptions offer the potential to do calculations in the strong coupling regime of experimentally-realized cond... read more

PIRSA:08120026  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
A Toy Model of Unparticle Physics
Speaker(s): Yevgeny Kats
Abstract: I will discuss a simple two-dimensional theory, whose unparticle sector is a modification of the Schwinger model, that gives new insights into the qualitative features of unparticle physics. I will analyze the transition between the short-distance perturbative physics and large-distance unparticle b... read more

PIRSA:08120027  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Supersymmetric U(1)' Models
Speaker(s): Gil Paz
Abstract: Extension of the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) that include a U(1)' gauge symmetry are motivated by top-down constructions and offer an elegant solution to the MSSM mu problem. In this talk I will describe some of the opportunities that such models offer, such as a new mechanism for m... read more

PIRSA:08120054  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
A photonic cluster state machine gun
Speaker(s): Netanel Lindner
Abstract: We present a method which can be used to convert certain single photon sources, such as quantum dots, into devices capable of emitting large strings of photonic cluster states in a controlled and pulsed “on demand” manner. Such sources greatly alleviate the resources required to achieve linear o... read more

Surprises in the theory of quantum channel capacity
Speaker(s): Jon Yard
Abstract: A quantum channel models a physical process which adds noise to a quantum system by interacting with the environment. Protecting quantum systems from such noise can be viewed as an extension of the classical communication problem introduced by Shannon sixty years ago. A fundamental quantity of inter... read more
