Speaker: Rachalis Maharucksit (UA) Title: Introduction to Field Space – A Geometric Description of QFT Abstract: When constructing a QFT we must choose a set of field to express the theory. This set is not unique and we are also free to express our theory in terms of some other set of fields. These choices […]
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Sašo Grozdanov (Massachusetts Institute of Technology / University of Ljubljana) Title: Bounds on transport from univalence and pole-skipping Recording of the talk: Video Abstract: Bounds on transport represent a way of understanding allowable regimes of quantum and classical dynamics. Numerous such bounds have been proposed, either for classes of theories or (by using […]
Speaker: Chuang Xu (UA) Title: T-duality and Double Field Theory Abstract: T-duality plays an important role in string theory. In this talk, I will give an introduction to the T-duality and its application to the string field theory. In the context of the closed string field theory, via the toroidal compactification, T-duality can be realized as […]
Speaker: Dr. Enrico Speranza (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Title: New developments of spin hydrodynamics Recording of the talk: Video Abstract: In this presentation I will discuss fundamental features of spin hydrodynamics, a novel theory of hydrodynamics which takes into account the dynamics of spin degrees of freedom. I will derive spin hydrodynamics from quantum kinetic […]
Speaker: Victor Baules (UA) Title: A look at Planckian Interacting Massive Particles as Dark Matter Abstract: Motivated by lack of experimental dark matter signatures, Planckian Interacting Dark Matter (PIDM) is a minimal model of dark matter with only gravitational interactions that may provide an alternative to current dark matter models. In this talk, I will […]
Speaker: Gerald V. Dunne (University of Connecticut) Title: “Decoding the Path Integral: Resurgent Asymptotics and Extreme QFT” Abstract: There are several important conceptual and computational questions concerning path integrals, which have recently been approached from new perspectives motivated by “resurgent asymptotics”, a novel mathematical formalism that seeks to unify perturbative and non-perturbative physics. I will […]
