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.
We will discuss the effect of non-equilibrium drive near a quantum
critical point in itinerant electron systems. Non-equilibrium field
theory is formulated in terms of the Keldysh functional integral.
The renormalization group approach is used to study the universality
class of the non-equilibrium phase transition in the steady state system.
The role of the non-equilibrium drive in the quantum-classical crossover
will be discussed using the example of the Hertz-Millis theory and
the generalization thereof.
On small scales the cosmic microwave background (CMB) is perturbed by large scale structure in the universe, primarily through Compton scattering and gravitational lensing. The current generation of CMB experiments is measuring these signals, allowing new measurements of the build-up of cosmic structure.
