Journal Club Schedule: Fall 2012
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:
Yang Zhang (NBI): Integrand-level reduction of scattering amplitudes: an
algebraic geometry story. Based on arXiv:1207.2976, 1205.5707, 1202.2019.
Yasuhiro Sekino (KEK): FRW/CFT duality: A holographic framework for eternal inflation. Based on arXiv:1003.1347, 0908.3844, 0807.1947, hep-th/0606204.
Honda Masazumi (KEK): Numerical studies of the ABJM theory for arbitrary N at arbitrary coupling constant. Based on arXiv:1202:5300.
Jelle Hartong (NBI): Firewalls: A|yes>+B|no>, AB=0. Based on
arXiv:1207.3123, 1208.3445 and 1207.5192.
Aleksi Kurkela (McGill): Thermalization in heavy ion collisions at very
