Nima Arkani-Hamed’s Messenger Lectuers

Hi everyone! I just wanted to point out that Nima Arkani-Hamed’s Messenger Lectures on “The Future of Fundamental Physics” are now available online from Cornell. I blogged a little about Nima some time ago to discuss the big picture of his current research program, but the Messenger Lectures are intended for a general audience. I think the readers of this blog will particularly enjoy it; I know that many of the physicists in the audience also gleaned a lot from his particular presentation.

(I’m shamelessly using the same flyer image I used before—the grad students here spent a lot of time putting up these flyers all over the university and town.)

I should note that at the moment Lecture 2 is not available online, I’m told that there were some problems with the audio recording which they are trying to fix. (Unfortunately this might be the lecture that readers of the blog would particularly enjoy since Nima spends a little time talking about Feynman diagrams and the rules for the Standard Model!) Hopefully it will be put up soon. [28 Oct: Lecture 2 is now posted, though there are still some audio problems in the beginning of the lecture. The Cornell Cast team is continuing to work on this and will try to post a better version in a few weeks.]

Nima also gave a series of technical lectures on the current status of his research on the calculation of scattering amplitudes. The grad students here recorded these and we’re currently processing the files. The lectures were particularly nice because they were a compact introduction to the field and we hope to eventually make these available as well. In the meanwhile, Nima and Freddy Cachazo gave a similar set of technical lectures at the Perimeter Institute and those are already available online through the PIRSA archive.

Enjoy the lectures!
