Quintessentially Science Fiction. An Interview with Eugenio Calabi, Hosted by Claude LeBrun, on Behalf of the Simons Center.

Click HERE to watch the video In July 2019, on behalf of the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook Mathematics Department, conducted an interview with Eugenio Calabi at the University of Pennsylvania Mathematics Department. Calabi is of course primarily famous for his pioneering work on Calabi-Yau manifolds, a class of solutions […]

Grand Environmental Challenges Workshop

Grand environmental challenges face our world, and Stony Brook University is well positioned to help solve some of them. We intend to propose a new Center focusing on solutions addressing Grand Challenge problems of the Earth environment utilizing campus-wide interdisciplinary faculty expertise. This workshop will shape the vision for this new campus-wide, environment-focused Center. Friday […]

Lighting new Lampposts for Dark Matter and Beyond the Standard Model: March 30 – April 3, 2020.

Organized by: Ranny Budnik, Rouven Essig, and Maxim Pospelov. Continuing progress in collider physics and dark matter searches in the past few decades have put significant pressure on several favorable theoretical models for Dark Matter and other beyond the Standard Model physics. However, the mystery of dark matter, and its true identity in relation to […]

Flowing into the future. Particle Jets in Quantum Field Theory and Phenomenology: October 19 – 23, 2020

Organized by: Christine Aidala, Yang-Ting Chien, Abhay Deshpande, and George Sterman. At high energies in quantum chromodynamics, particle jets provide an experimentally accessible manifestation of a change in degrees of freedom with time. The relationship between asymptotically short and long times in scattering systems is a recurring theme in quantum field theory. With a new […]
