Cause and Effect in a Quantum World
Speaker(s): Robert Spekkens
Abstract: Determining causal relationships is central to scientific understanding. Knowledge of such relations permit us not only to predict how a system will behave naturally, but also how it would behave under different hypothetical circumstances, including those where we exert control over some component. ... read more

Exploring the Warped Side of the Universe
Speaker(s): Nergis Mavalvala
Abstract: Some of the most violent events in the Universe are accompanied by spectacular warpages of space-time that travel to us in the form of gravitational waves. Gravitational waves were predicted by Einstein's theory of general relativity over a century ago, but scientists have not yet detected them dire... read more

Emmy Noether: Her life, work, and influence
Abstract: Emmy Noether was a giant of mathematics whose work tied together two fundamental concepts: conservation laws and symmetries in nature. But who was she, and why does her work still have such impact? Mathematician Peter Olver explores Noether’s life and career, and delves into the curious history of... read more

Probing and Controlling Quantum Matter in Artificial Crystals of Light
Speaker(s): Immanuel Bloch
Abstract: More than 30 years ago, Richard Feynman outlined the visionary concept of a quantum simulator for carrying out complex physics calculations. Today, his dream has become a reality in laboratories around the world. All this has become possible using complex experimental setups of thousands of optical ... read more

Exploring Quantum Matter with the High Temperature Superconductors
Speaker(s): Subir Sachdev
Abstract: Apart from high temperature superconductivity, the cuprate compounds also display fascinating new types of metallic states from which the superconductivity descends. These metals have served as a remarkable laboratory for modern ideas on long-range quantum entanglement and its consequences for the... read more

Searching for the Dark Universe
Speaker(s): Neal Weiner
Abstract: For nearly a century, we have known that the majority of matter in the universe is not luminous. In the past few decades we have come to be certain that this matter is not only not luminous but not made out of any of the particle ever observed in a laboratory. I will describe the ongoing hunt for th... read more
