Video Library

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.

We shall follow the
growth of probability theory and applications from the 1650s onwards, in
parallel with the development of statistical inference.  Bayesian,
Neyman-Pearson hypothesis testing and Fisherian likelihood methods will all be
covered, with an emphasis on relating theory to a wide range of
applications.   Practical sessions will use SciPy and feature
closed-form solutions, iterative and Monte Carlo simulation methods

We review recent breakthroughs in understanding
some general features of the Renormalization Group and of Quantum Field Theory.
We discuss some applications of these new results and their deep connection to
the entanglement of the Quantum Field Theory vacuum.

We derive the collective theory of singlet fields of large-N Sp(N) spin
models and display its unconventional features. Using the known relationship
between O(N) collective fields and higher spin fields of Vasiliev theory in AdS
space, we argue that the unique features of the Sp(N) collective
theory suggest an interpretation in terms of a higher spin theory in de Sitter
space, as proposed by Anninos, Hartman and Strominger.  This is
reminiscent of the way the Liouville mode is naturally  interpreted as
