Uplifting AdS/CFT to Cosmology
Speaker(s): Eva Silverstein
Abstract: Starting from AdS/CFT, one can introduce ingredients which produce cosmological solutions, including metastable de Sitter and its decay to FRW. In the de Sitter case, this produces a compact brane construction which mirrors the dS/dS correspondence realizing de Sitter as a pair of warped throats cou... read more

Monodromy in the CMB: Gravity Waves and String Inflation
Speaker(s): Eva Silverstein
Abstract: The sensitivity of inflationary models to Planck-suppressed operators motivates modeling inflation in string theory. The case of high-scale inflation is particularly interesting both theoretically and observationally. Observationally it yields a gravity wave (B mode polarization) signature, and theo... read more
