New Perspectives from Gravity's Extremes
Speaker(s): William East
Abstract: Beginning with the landmark gravitational wave detections by LIGO/Virgo, we have been gaining an unprecedented view of the dynamics of strongly curved spacetime originally predicted by Einstein. Enabling and motivated by these observations, there has been rapid development in the theoretical a... read more

Spacetime Dynamics of the Higgs Instability and the Fate of the Early Universe
Speaker(s): William East
Abstract: A remarkable feature of the Standard Model is that it predicts that, in the absence of new physics, the Higgs field should become unstable at large energies. Though the electroweak vacuum should currently be metastable on timescales that are long compared to the age of the Universe, during an infla... read more
