Back to the current schedule

Journal Club Schedule: Fall 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, or a visitor, will present a recent paper. The tentative schedule is as follows:

September

     Lorenzo Seri (SISSA): Resolution of singularities in Matrix Big-Bang models; based on arXiv:1003.0620 and more recent work.

     Yang Zhang (NBIA): Graviton amplitude in de-Sitter space; based on arXiv:1104.2846.
