Upcoming Events

Modjaz Group Mtg
Event Type: Modjaz Group Mtg

Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Time: 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 901, Sm Conf

Electron-positron pair creation in pulsars
Andrey Timokhin, NASA
Event Type: Astro Seminar

Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Pulsars are among the most extreme objects in the universe, where physical processes work in regimes of extreme densities as well as gravitational and electromagnetic field strengths. It is widely agreed upon that pulsar activity is intimately connected to copious generation of electron-positron pairs in the magnetosphere - a rapidly rotating magnetized neutron star is active as pulsar only as long as it can create pairs. Here I briefly overview recent progress in theoretical studies of pulsar magnetospheres and report on the most recent results of self-consistent modeling of pair creation in pulsars. I discuss the implication of these results for our understanding of the physics of pulsars and Pulsar Wind Nebulae.
Cosmic strings and primordial black holes
Alex Vilenkin, Tufts University
Event Type: Special Seminar

Date: Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Time: 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Cosmic strings and primordial black holes (PBHs) commonly and naturally form in many scenarios describing the early universe. If both strings and PBHs are present, their interaction leads to a range of interesting consequences.

Deep Sets for Particle Jets
Jesse Thaler, MIT
Event Type: HEP Seminar

Date: Wednesday, October 17, 2018

Time: 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: One of most basic facts about quantum mechanics is that identical particles are indistinguishable. One of most basic facts about quantum field theory is that only infrared-and-collinear-safe observables can be calculated in a fixed-order expansion. In this talk, I show how to incorporate both of these facts into a novel machine learning architecture called Energy Flow Networks (EFNs). EFNs are a special case of a more general architecture called Deep Sets, with the nice feature that one can "open the box" of an EFN to gain insight into what the network has learned. Using the example of quark/gluon jet tagging at the LHC, I highlight the excellent performance of EFNs and their intuitive visualization.

Machine Learning, Particle Systems and Scientific Computing
Eric Vanden Eijnden
Event Type: Physics Dept Colloquium

Date: Thursday, October 18, 2018

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: The methods and models of machine learning (ML) are rapidly becoming de facto tools for the analysis and interpretation of large data sets. Complex classification tasks such as speech and image recognition, automatic translation, decision making, etc. that were out of reach a decade ago are now routinely performed by computers with a high degree of reliability using (deep) neural networks. These performances suggest that it may be possible to represent high-dimensional functions with controllably small errors, potentially outperforming standard interpolation methods based on Galerkin truncation or finite elements: these have been the workhorses of scientific computing but suffer from the curse of dimensionality. By beating this curse, ML techniques could change the way we perform quantum physics calculations, molecular dynamics simulation, PDE solution, etc. In support of this prospect, in this talk I will present results about the representation error and trainability of neural networks, obtained by mapping the parameters of the neural network to a system of interacting particles. I will also discuss what these results imply for applications in scientific computing.

Stringy WZW models as integrable deformations
Alessandro Sfondrini, ETH, Zurich, CH
Event Type: Special HET Seminar

Date: Friday, October 19, 2018

Time: 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Integrability techniques have been crucial to compute non-protected observables in AdS/CFT. Recently it was understood that the AdS3xS3xT4 stringy Wess-Zumino-Witten model, which is most often studied as a worldsheet CFT, can also be thought of as a very simple integrable model---in fact, the integrable deformation of a free theory. I will describe how this can be done and how to compute the full spectrum of this model; I will also comment on how one might be able to compute more complicated observables, such as correlation functions, by integrability.
