Video Library

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.

Neutrino oscillations has been observed and confirmed at two mass splittings (\Delta m^2), which is consistent with three generations of neutrinos and an unitary mixing matrix. Despite the rapid progress in understanding neutrino oscillations in the last decade, two large questions remain about neutrino oscillation parameters at \Delta m^2 ~ 0.001 eV^2. Is \theta_{23} exactly 45 degrees, indicating an additional symmetry in neutrino mixing? Is \theta_{13} non-zero, which would mean there could be CP violation in the neutrino sector.

Correlation functions in the gauge-gravity correspondence (AdS/CFT) are dual to scattering amplitudes in anti-de Sitter space (AdS). In this talk, I will describe how techniques that were recently developed to study scattering amplitudes in flat space can be generalized to AdS leading to a new and efficient method of computing correlation functions in AdS/CFT.
