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.

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

In an approach to quantum gravity where space-time arises from coarse graining of fundamentally discrete structures, black hole formation and subsequent evaporation could be described by a unitary evolution without the problems encountered by standard remnant scenarios or the schemes where information is assumed to come out with the radiation while semiclassical evaporation (firewalls and complementarity).
