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.
completely in the perturbative sector, yet it is able to compute
amplitudes in physical string theory and it also enjoys large N
dualities. These gauge theory duals, sometimes in the form of matrix
models, can be solved past perturbation theory by plugging transseries
ansätze into the so called string equation. Based on the mathematics of
resurgence, developed in the 80's by J. Ecalle, this approach has been
will describe a new method for understanding a large class of
generalized complex manifolds, in which we view them as usual
symplectic structures on a manifold with a kind of log structure. I
will explain this structure in detail and explain how it can be used
to prove a Tian-Todorov unobstructedness theorem as well as
topological obstructions for existence of nondegenerate generalized
Ordinary differential equations become much less ordinary
when they are allowed to have singularities.
Solving them naively in formal power series, one often obtains divergent
series, just as in the perturbation series for physical observables in quantum
