    Princeton University Department of Physics Donald R. Hamilton Colloquium Series
    “Quantum Gas Microscopy of Strongly Interacting Fermions in Optical Lattices”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Waseem Bakr, Princeton University

    Description: Ultracold fermions in optical lattices provide a clean physical realization of the celebrated Fermi-Hubbard model of condensed matter, a minimal model believed to contain the essential ingredients for high-temperature superconductivity. Recent advances in the field of quantum gas microscopy have opened up the possibility to probe and manipulate Fermi-Hubbard systems at the atomic level, enabling quantitative studies at temperatures that are challenging for state-of-the-art simulations on classical computers. In this talk I will report on experiments that probe equilibrium spin and density correlations in the Hubbard model in new regimes, including a repulsive spin-imbalanced system and a doped attractive system, which are related to each other through a mathematical mapping. I will also report on experiments where we measure the transport properties of doped repulsive systems. We find that the resistivity exhibits a linear temperature dependence and shows no evidence of saturation, two characteristic signatures of a bad metal.

    High Energy Theory Seminar
    “Exact correlation functions in double-scaled SYK”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, PCTS Seminar Room
    Time: 2:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Vladimir Narovlansky, Weizmann Institute

    Description: We show that exact results (at all energy scales) can be obtained in double-scaled SYK, which is the usual SYK model with the number of fermions in the interaction scaling as \sqrt{N}. These include the calculation of the full four-point function. The analysis does not involve summations of Feynman diagrams, but rather uses combinatorial tools. These results are related in the appropriate limit to recent results on SYK and the Schwarzian theory.

    Princeton University Department of Physics Donald R. Hamilton Colloquium Series
    “Dark Matter in Disequilibrium”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Mariangela Lisanti, Princeton University

    Description: The Gaia mission is in the process of mapping nearly 1% of the Milky Way’s stars.  This data set is unprecedented and provides a unique view into the formation history of our Galaxy and its associated dark matter halo.  I will review results based on the most recent Gaia data release, which demonstrate that the inner Galaxy is dominated by the stellar remnants of a single massive satellite galaxy that merged with the Milky Way early on.  These results suggest that a component of the local dark matter is not in equilibrium, as typically assumed, and instead exhibits distinctive dynamics. The updated dark matter map built from the Gaia data has ramifications for direct detection experiments, which search for the interactions of these particles in terrestrial targets.

    Princeton University Department of Physics Donald R. Hamilton Colloquium Series
    “Critical Phenomena and the Conformal Bootstrap”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Room A10
    Time: 4:00 PM
    Speaker(s): David Poland, Yale University

    Description: From critical phenomena to quantum gravity, conformal field theories describe the universal scale-invariant structures that lie at the heart of theoretical physics. The conformal bootstrap is the powerful idea, dating back to the 70’s, that one can use fundamental consistency conditions to constrain, solve, and map out the space of conformal field theories. In this talk I will describe how the modern incarnation of the conformal bootstrap can perform precise non-perturbative calculations of critical exponents in strongly-interacting field theories in a variety of dimensions without reference to a microscopic Lagrangian or Hamiltonian, highlighting recent results.

    “Tree Amplitudes for Some Supersymmetric Theories in Six Dimensions”

    Location: Bloomberg Lecture Hall
    Time: 2:30 PM
    Speaker(s): John Schwarz, Caltech

    Description: All of the tree amplitudes are constructed for four supersymmetric theories in six dimensions using spinor-helicity variables and the CHY formalism. Two of the theories, the world volume theories of an M5-brane and a D5-brane, only have nonzero amplitudes when n, the number of particles, is even. The other two theories, (1,1) super Yang-Mills and (2,2) supergravity, have nonzero amplitudes for both even and odd n, of course. The constructions for odd n involve some novel features.

    PCTS Workshop
    “Novel Ideas for Dark Matter”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, Fourth Floor, Room 407, PCTS Seminar Room
    Time: 8:30 AM
    Note: Register here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf30X77lY09RVrDcsx98KJJkRoy3akoR5TCQESS101MoT2Y5g/viewform

    Description: Dark matter research is undergoing a paradigm shift. Over the last few years, many novel theories have been proposed that challenge the standard assumptions made about dark matter. At the same time, new observations and simulation results are providing valuable clues regarding the most fruitful directions moving forward.

    The “Novel Ideas for Dark Matter 2019” workshop at Princeton University attempts to bridge the gap between communities working on non-standard solutions to the dark matter problem. Plenary talks on theory, observations and simulations will be structured into a three day schedule that will provide a broad overview of research avenues of this type. The workshop aims to promote conversations between research communities with ample time for open discussion.
