Place: 5310 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Caroline Latorre, University of Illinois - Chicago
Abstract: Are you interested in graduate school? Are you interested in graduate school in Business or an MBA perhaps? The Physics Department is hosting an representative from the University of Illinois - Chicago Liautaud Graduate School of Business to talk about their MBA program and admissions.<br>

Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
From here to there: From neuroscience of the human brain to complex system realities in every day human life
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Bernard Z. Friedlander, Department of Psychology, University of Hartford, West Hartford, CT
Abstract: Can we adapt burgeoning progress in neurocellular electrochemistry to human behavior in the disorderly theaters of real life in which our individual and social narratives unfold? Can we identify critical conceptual and practical issues that must be recognized and solved if we are to reconcile the divergent criteria of explanatory natural sciences and the interpretive sciences of human behavior?

Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Falling, intersecting, and magnetized flavors in AdS/CFT
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: Chamberlin 5280
Speaker: Paul McGuirk, Cornell University
Abstract: The addition of global symmetry groups to strongly coupled gauge theories realized by AdS/CFT is of both purely theoretical interest, as doing extends the gauge/gravity correspondence, and model-building interest, as such groups provide prototypes of bulk Randall-Sundrum models. In the best-understood versions of the correspondence, such global symmetries are realized by the addition of D-branes that extend along the radial direction of anti-de Sitter space. I will discuss some recent and forthcoming results on the physics of such branes. In particular, I will talk about how they respond to sources of supersymmetry breaking and how such D-branes can be combined and modified to introduce bifundemental and chiral fields.
