During April 17-19, 2017 we have Wilke van der Schee visiting us from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Boston, MA. Wilke is going to lead a set of tutorial sessions during which we are going to discuss and work out numerical methods for holographic thermalization problems. More details about this research area can be found on Wilke's website. Wilke will conclude his visit by giving a colloquium talk at our Department for Physics and Astronomy.
Our PhD student Casey Cartwright has received the graduate council fellowship (GCF) supporting him to study and perform research for 12 months. Congratulations!

Results from our recent preprint were just published in the Journal of High Energy Physics (JHEP). This work was conducted in collaboration with Prof. Dr. Martin Ammon and Julian Leiber from Jena University in Germany. Julian Leiber was visiting us at UA as an international graduate research exchange student (IGREP) for six weeks during Fall 2016. Kaminski, Koirala, and Wu visited Jena University for a week in Summer 2016. The published paper can be found here.

Results from our recent preprint published with collaborators from Jena University was presented at this year's meeting of the American Physical Society. The slide to the talk can be found here.
Our proceeding paper with Nobel Laureate Gerard 't Hooft just appeared on the arXiv preprint server. Dr. ’t Hooft was awarded the Nobel price for "elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions in physics”. In our recent publication "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Gravity and Information" we address some of today's most fundamental questions of theoretical physics in search for the correct formulation of quantum gravity. The paper was accepted for publication in the journal "Springer Proceedings in Physics".
I am very happy to be appointed a member of the advisory board of the German Academics International Network (GAIN) for 4 years.
High Energy Physics (HEP) Seminar
Semester topic: Introduction to string theory
Reference: Becker, Becker, Schwarz "String theory and M-theory: a modern introduction''
Location: GL 338
Time: 4:00 PM
Format: All talks on the semester topic are held by students for students. Clearly, faculty are more than welcome to participate. The format of this seminar is informal. Talks are 45 minutes long plus a generous amount of discussion time.
In selected weeks we are going to have regular seminar talks by external speakers.
