During the semester we have a high energy seminar and a lunch seminar. In addition to these two seminars we participate in a joint theoretical high energy theory seminar in Newe Shalom. The joint seminar takes place on Tuesdays from 10:30 until 13:30 and includes two talks and lunch. This seminar is attended by the high energy groups of all the Israeli institutions and usually attracts a crowd of roughly twenty participants.

We define a “defect entropy” and argue that it decreases monotonically during RG flows.

In particular, to each hyperbolic manifold, one can associate a Hilbert … Justin Kaidi 4:00 pm Justin Kaidi Jan 25 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm Title: KramersWannierlike duality defects in (3+1)d gauge theoriesAbstract: I will introduce a class of noninvertible topological defects in (3+1)d gauge theories whose fusion rules are the higherdimensional analogs of those of the KramersWannier defect in the …
