Back to the current schedule

Journal Club Schedule: Spring 2011



In every meeting we will spend the first 10-15 minutes talking about new papers on the arXiv that people found interesting (we would also like to hear about recent conferences that people attended). Then one member of the group will present a recent paper. The tentative schedule is as follows:

January

     Niels Obers (NBI): Heating up the blon; based on his papers arXiv:1012.1494 and arXiv:1101.1297.

February


  Wednesday 02/02 at 11:15 

     Ricardo Monteiro (NBIA): From Navier-Stokes to Einstein; based on Bredberg et al, arXiv:1101.2451.

  Wednesday 09/02 at 11:15 

     Donovan Young (NBI): Tree-level Recursion Relation and Dual Superconformal Symmetry of the ABJM Theory; based on Gang et al, arXiv:1012.5032.

  Wednesday 23/02 at 11:15 

     Konstantinos Zoubos (NBI): Holography for minimal models; based on Gaberdiel and Gopakumar, arXiv:1011.2986, and Gaberdiel and Hartman, arXiv:1101.2910.

March


  Wednesday 02/03 at 11:15 

     Charlotte Kristjansen (NBI): Non-planar Integrability; based on Carlson et al, arXiv:1101.5404.
