Abstract: We present a model of quantum cosmology based on anti-de Sitter/conformal field theory (AdS/CFT) holography. The spacetimes in our construction are time-symmetric, big-bang/big-crunch cosmologies with a negative cosmological constant $\Lambda$. In the simplest version of our model the cosmology lives inside a spatially finite bubble within an otherwise empty AdS spacetime. By studying the thermodynamic and geometric properties of this spacetime, we provide evidence that the ``bubble of cosmology'' spacetime has a well-defined dual CFT description.

Abstract: By quenching the interaction strength, we induce and study a topological dynamical phase transition between superconducting phases of a planar fermionic model. Using the Lindblad Master Equation approach to account for the interactions of Bogoliubov quasiparticles among themselves and with the fluctuations of the superconducting order parameter, we derive the corresponding relaxation dynamics of the order parameter. To fully characterize the phase transition, we also compute the fidelity and the spin-Hall conductance of the system.

Abstract:

The search for the Higgs boson was central to the conception and design of the LHC detectors. However, measurements of the Higgs coupling to the second and third-generation quarks were regarded as extremely challenging and, in some cases, impossible.  Scientific ingenuity and original thought have allowed ATLAS and CMS to probe the coupling of the Higgs boson to quarks. I will discuss techniques (including machine learning) used to achieve this and provide a brief perspective on future directions.

Abstract: In the first part of my talk, I will discuss  a Holstein-like model with two electrons nonlinearly coupled to quantum phonons. Using an efficient method based on full quantum approach [1-4] we  simulate the dynamical response of a system subject to a short spatially uniform optical pulse that couples to dipole-active vibrational modes. Nonlinear electron-phonon coupling can either soften or strengthen the phonon frequency in the presence of electron density [5].

Abstract: When two atomically-thin layers of a material are stacked one atop each other, with a relative twist angle between them, properties can emerge that bear little resemblance to the behavior of the individual layers. Though much can be predicted and designed about such structures, I will share two vignettes about how my students aimed for a particular behavior but found something quite different.
