    Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Early Universe/Cosmology Lunch Discussion
    “Evidence for the kSZ Effect with ACTPol and BOSS: Probing baryon physics in galaxy groups and clusters”

    Location: Institute for Advanced Study, West Building, West Seminar Room
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Emmanuel Schaan, Princeton University

    Description: Organizers are David Spergel, Princeton University, and Matias Zaldarriaga, Institute for Advanced Study. The lunch will be held at either Princeton University or the Institute for Advanced Study. Check the calendar for the meeting location. This week's meeting is at the Institute for Advanced Study. Attendees can bring their own lunch or stop at the IAS Dining Hall. The West Seminar room is in a building which is a short walk from the main dining area. ABSTRACT: Through the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (kSZ) effect, the baryon momentum field is imprinted on the cosmic microwave background (CMB). Current small-scale high- sensitivity CMB experiments make this effect measurable, providing a unique handle on peculiar velocities and baryon physics. I will report significant evidence for the kSZ effect, obtained by combining CMB intensity data from ACTPol with peculiar velocities reconstructed from the galaxy number density field in BOSS. I will present the prospects for localizing the missing baryons and measuring cluster gas profiles from the kSZ effect, and discuss the various sources of systematic error associated.

    “Bayesian Inference & Deep Learning in Astrophysics”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Room 145
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Farhan Feroz, University of Cambridge

    Description: Astrophysics and cosmology have increasingly become data driven with the availability of large amount of high quality data from missions like WMAP, Planck and LHC. This has resulted in Bayesian inference methods being widely used to analyse observations, but they can be extremely computationally demanding. My research over the past few years has focused on the development of new methods for greatly accelerating such analyses, by up to a factor a million, using deep learning and nested sampling methods, such as the SkyNet and MultiNest packages respectively. I will give an outline of these approaches, which are generic in nature, and illustrate their use in some interesting problems in astrophysics.

    Princeton University Cosmology and Gravity Group Special Seminar
    “Hamiltonian Dynamics of Large-mass-Ratio Binaries: The self-force approach”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Joesph Henry Room, Room 102
    Time: 3:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Soichiro Isoyama, University of Guelph

    Description: Large-mass-ratio compact binaries (stellar compact objects inspiral into super massive black holes) are a main source of future gravitational observatory such as eLISA. These systems are highly effective to explore the strong-field geometry of massive black holes, and extracting these information from emitted gravitational signals demands an accurate theoretical model of binary dynamics. The self-force approach, which describes motion of a small body in a curved spacetime including the back-reaction of its own gravitational field to the motion, is one of such models. In this talk, we discuss the orbital dynamics of large-mass-ratio binaries in self-force approach. I will begin by reviewing the foundation of the self-force in perturbation theory, and will proceed to outline its recent Hamiltonian formulation. The Hamiltonian formulation provides a clear prescription and powerful scheme for practical implementation of self-forced motion, particularly in Kerr spacetime. Next, we will discuss the application of our Hamiltonian formulation. Focusing on its conservative sector, I will report the recent calculations of conservative post-geodesic effects on motion in Schwarzschild and Kerr geometry, and will discuss how they make a fruitful contact with post-Newtonian theory and numerical relativity.

    “Next Questions in Neutrino Physics and the NOvA Experiment”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Ryan Patterson, California Institute of Technology

    Description: Non-zero neutrino mass brings with it new complexity in the neutrino sector, and major questions surrounding neutrino masses and mixing remain unanswered. Among the unknowns are the ordering of the neutrino masses, key details of flavor mixing, and whether neutrinos respect CP symmetry. NOvA, a long-baseline neutrino oscillation experiment sited along Fermilab’s NuMI neutrino beam, will address these questions and much more. NOvA recently began full operations with its 14-kton detector and will continue through this decade. After a review of the physics context, I will discuss NOvA’s experimental design, physics program, and first neutrino oscillation results.

    “Condensed Matter Seminar: Towards Artificial Living Materials”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room 407, PCTS
    Time: 2:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Michael Brenner, Harvard University
    Note: No registration needed.

    Description: Biological systems provide an inspiration for creating a new paradigm for materials synthesis. Imagine it were possible to create an inanimate material that could both perform some function, e.g. catalyze a set of reactions, and also self replicate. Changing the parameters governing such a system would allow the possibility of evolving materials with interesting properties by carrying out “mutation-selection” cycles on the functional outcomes. Although we are quite far from realizing such a vision in the laboratory, recent experimental advances in coating colloidal scale objects with specific glues (e.g.using complementary DNA strands) have suggested a set of theoretical models in which the possibilities of realizing these ideas can be explored in a controlled way. This talk will describe our ongoing efforts to explore these ideas using theory and simulation, and also small scale experiments.

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Joseph Curtin, Joseph Curtin Studios

    Description: A longstanding goal of violin research has been to establish objectively measurable parameters for violin quality. These would presumably substantiate one of the violin-world’s most passionately held beliefs: Violins made by Stradivari and his contemporaries in 18th Century Italy sound better than any made elsewhere or since. However, a team of researchers led by Claudia Fritz and Joseph Curtin have shown that, under double-blind conditions, neither professional violinists nor experienced listeners can tell Old Italian violins from new ones at better than chance levels. Moreover, players and listeners tend to prefer the new. Violin-maker, researcher, and MacArthur Fellow Joseph Curtin will discuss recent developments in violin science, and his own interest in measuring violin sound. He will also preview the team’s upcoming paper: “Objective parameters for violin quality.”

The format will be informal and inclusive, spanning at a minimum exoplanets, the solar system, and astrobiology. Moreover, we plan on discussing multiple topics each time we meet, and not to tether a lunch to one organized presentation each sitting. The purpose is to foster wide-ranging and cross-fertilizing interaction and to keep the local community up to date on developments across the spectrum of associated activities. Joel Hartman and Tim Morton are the organizers.

    “Math Physics Seminar: A Potential Mechanism for a Singular Solution of the Euler Equation”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room 303
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Michael Brenner, Harvard University
    Note: No registration needed.

    Description: I will describe a potential mechanism for a singular solution of the Euler equation. The mechanism involves the interaction of vortex filaments, but occurs sufficiently quickly and at a small enough scales that could have plausibly evaded experimental and computational detection. Joint work with Sahand Hormoz and Alain Pumir.

    Rutgers University Physics/Astronomy Colloquium
    “Self-calibration, Systematic Errors, and Exoplanet Discovery”

    Location: Serin Physics Laboratory, Physics Lecture Hall
    Time: 4:45 PM
    Speaker(s): David Hogg, New York University
    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm.

    Description: Finding exoplanets is hard:  They appear as extremely tiny signals in any data set.  Intrinsic stellar variability and variability induced by the spacecraft (or telescope or atmosphere) are both larger (in almost all data sets) than the exoplanet signals of interest.  The best information about these sources of variability comes from the scientific data themselves; that is, the most sensitive searches for exoplanets are self-calibrated.  I use Kepler and K2 data to illustrate these points, showing a set of discoveries in the K2 mission, where the spacecraft-induced variability is larger than most exoplanet signals by more than an order of magnitude.  (Come prepared to suffer through some linear algebra.)

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room 407, PCTS
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Michael Brenner, Harvard University
    Note: No registration needed.

    Description: Individuals can function as integrated organisms only when information and resources are shared across a body. Signals and substrates are commonly moved using fluids, often channeled through a network of tubes. I will discuss signal transduction and propagation in the slime mold Physarum polycephalum, which grows as a random network of tubes, foraging for nutrients. We demonstrate theoretically and experimentally that a version of peristalsis operates in this system, in which a coordinated wave pattern causes bulk transport across the organism. Strikingly the wavelength of the pattern tunes itself to the size of the organism. We identify experimentally the mode of signal propagation for the organism learning about a new food source, and show theoretically that this arises naturally as the coupling between the transported nutrient and the contractions of the cell wall.

    Institute for Advanced Study Informal Astrophysics Seminar
    “Warm Circumstellar Debris Disks: Diagnosing the Unseen Perturber”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Erika Nesvold, Carnegie Institution for Science

    Description: Observations of circumstellar debris disks have revealed that a subset of this population harbor a warm dust component. This dust is short-lived, requiring continual replenishment, and indicating that the disk must be excited by an unseen perturber. Previous theoretical studies have demonstrated that an eccentric planet orbiting interior to the disk will stir the planetesimals in the belt and produce dust via collisions. However, motivated by recent observations, we explore another possible mechanism for heating a debris disk: a stellar-mass perturber orbiting exterior to and inclined to the disk and exciting the planetesimals’ eccentricities and inclinations via the Kozai-Lidov mechanism. We explore the consequences of an exterior perturber on the evolution of a debris disk using secular analysis and collisional N-body simulations. We demonstrate that a Kozai-Lidov excited disk can generate a dust disk via collisions and compare the results of the Kozai-Lidov excited disk with a simulated disk perturbed by an interior eccentric planet. Finally, we discuss possible observational tests of a warm disk that can distinguish whether the disk was produced by an exterior brown dwarf or stellar companion or an interior planet.

    Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) Mini-course
    “Introduction to Python for Scientific Computing”

    Location: Princeton University, Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, Jadwin Hall, Room 407
    Time: 10:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Alexey Svyatkovskiy, Princeton University

    Description: Python is a free, dynamic, open-source, general-purpose programming language that is widely used in all fields of scientific computing. The Python language is expressive and productive, equipped with a great standard library, and it’s the center of a number of third-party libraries like Numpy, Scikit-learn, Matplotlib, and Pandas. With Python one can build everything from simple scripts to complex applications, doing it quickly, and with fewer lines of code than one could think possible. This workshop will be broken into three sections, each finishing in a set of hands-on exercises. The first section’s objective is to provide a fast refresher on Python syntax, variables and control structures. We'll then move onto demonstrating features from Python’s scientific computing stack. To finish, we will run through demos of a number of other packages for model-fitting, MCMC, deep learning, and image processing.

    Location: Princeton University, Princeton Center for Theoretical Science, Jadwin Hall, Room 407
    Time: 10:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Ian Cosden, Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE)

    Description: This two-day workshop is intended to provide a practical introduction to the broad topic of parallel computing for scientific/numerical codes. Both MPI and OpenMP, two of the most popular tools for compiled-language parallel programming will be covered. The primary focus of the workshop will be features and topics most useful for beginning parallel programmers. The first day will cover MPI, including environment management, point-to-point communication, and collective communication routines. The second day will cover OpenMP constructs for specifying parallel regions, work sharing, synchronization, and environment management. Covered throughout the workshop will be general strategies for writing and scaling parallel code as well as tips for optimizing and debugging. Examples will be provided in C and C++ and multiple lab exercises will allow participants to hands-on experience designing, writing, compiling, and executing parallel code on a Princeton Research Computing High Performance Computing (HPC) Cluster. Level/Prerequisites: This workshop assumes no prior experience with parallel programming but does require some familiarity with C/C++ and basic programming concepts. Some experience working in a Linux command line environment is strongly encouraged but not required. Registrants must have a Princeton University netID, as this is required to gain access to the HPC cluster. Participants should bring their own computers with an ssh client already installed.

    “What does the Golden Ration have to do with friction? An answer atom by atom.”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Vladan Vuletic, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

    Description: Friction is the basic, ubiquitous mechanical interaction between two surfaces that results in resistance to motion and energy dissipation. To test long-standing atomistic models of friction processes at the nanoscale, we have implemented a synthetic nanofriction interface using laser cooled ions subject to the periodic potential of an optical standing wave. We show that stick-slip friction can be tuned from maximal to nearly frictionless via arrangement of the ions relative to the periodic potential, and that friction at the nanoscale can substantially differ from the simple phenomenological laws observed at the macroscale. We also establish a direct link between Aubry’s structural transition for an infinite chain in an incommensurate periodic potential, and the vanishing of friction in nanocontacts.

    “Superfluids of Light: Bose-Einstein condensation of polaritons in microcavities”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:30 PM
    Speaker(s): David Snoke, University of Pittsburgh

    Description: In specially designed solid microcavities, the photon properties can be altered to have effective mass and repulsive interactions; these new states are called "polaritons". The polaritons act like atoms, and because they are bosons, they can undergo Bose-Einstein condensation. The experiments on polariton condensation have shown truly remarkable progress in recent years, with new results showing superfluidity and quantized vorticity in a ring geometry. I will review the state of the art in the field, including results from our lab in Pittsburgh which show quantized vorticity, and measurements of the phase diagram for the polariton condensation.
