Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, public outreach events such as talks from top scientists using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities.
Recordings of events in these areas are all available and On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA). PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.
Accessibly by anyone with internet, Perimeter aims to share the power and wonder of science with this free library.

(Super)conformal algebras on two-dimensional spacetimes play a ubiquitous role in representation theory and conformal field theory. In most cases, however, superconformal algebras are finite dimensional. In this talk, we introduce refinements of certain deformations of superconformal algebras which share many facets with the ordinary (super) Virasoro algebras. Representations of these refinements include the higher dimensional Kac—Moody algebras, and many more motivated by physics.

The talk illuminates the role of codes and lattice vertex algebras in algebraic topology. These objects come up naturally in connection with string structures or topological modular forms. The talk tries to unify these different concepts in an introductory manner.
Baker and Richter's $A_\infty$ analog of the complex cobordism spectrum provides characteristic numbers for complex-oriented toric manifolds, which generalize to define similar invariants for Hamiltonian toric dynamical systems: roughly, the `completely integrable' systems of classical mechanics which (by KAM theory) possess remarkable stability properties. arXiv:1910.12609

We investigate putting 2+1 free and holographic theories on a product of time with a curved compact 2-d space. We then vary the geometry of the space, keeping the area fixed, at zero/finite temperature, and measure the Casimir/free energy respectively. I will begin by discussing the free theory for a Dirac fermion or scalar field on deformations of the round 2-sphere. I will discuss how the Dirac theory may arise in physical systems such as monolayer graphene. For small deformations we solve analytically using perturbation theory.
I'll discuss elliptic cohomology from a physical perspective, indicating the importance of the Segal-Stolz-Teichner conjecture and joint work with D. Berwick-Evans on rigorously proving some of these physical predictions.
Thirteen years ago, Lurie has sketched a way to obtain equivariant elliptic cohomology and equivariant topological modular forms without the need to restrict to rational or complex coefficients. Recently, David Gepner and I have found one way to flesh out the details and and provide computations in the U(1)-equivariant case. On this work I will report.
