Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events 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 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.
Recent progress on the construction of holographic lattices and its applications to AdS/CMT correspondence will be briefly reviewed. Our special interests will focus on the building of bulk geometry of gravity whose holographic duals exhibit metal-insulator transitions (MIT). In particular, the Peierls phase transition induced by charge density waves is implemented in a holographic manner. The holographic entanglement entropy close to quantum critical points will be discussed as well.
In this talk I will show how to use the pure spinor formalism to compute multiloop string amplitudes, including their precise overall coefficients. I will also discuss the relevance of the recent four-point 3-loop and five-point 2-loop amplitudes for verifying some S-duality predictions.
We present a string-inspired method to construct supersymmetric loop integrands for scattering amplitudes in ten-dimensional SYM and supergravity. The kinematic dependence is described in pure spinor superspace and determined from the BRST-symmetry of the underlying pure spinor superstring. We focus on five-point examples at one- and two-loop order which satisfy the BCJ duality between color and kinematics. Hence, the supergravity integrands follow straightforwardly from a double copy construction of the cubic diagrams in SYM.
After reviewing its structure and discussing the twistor-like origin of the pure spinor formalism, I will speculate on possible applications for AdS_5xS^5 and M-theory
