### HET Brown Bag Seminar | Generalized Global Symmetries and Nonperturbative Quantum Flavodynamics

#### Seth Koren (Notre Dame)

Generalized global symmetries are present in theories of particle physics, and understanding their structure can give insight into these...

### HET Seminar | New (Non-)Supersymmetric Phases in N=4 SYM

#### Vineeth Krishna (UMICH)

In this work, we extend our current understanding of the phase diagram of N=4 SYM at any given set of charges (Microcanonical Ensemble) by...

### HET Seminar | Fivebrane Stars

#### Emil Martinec (UChicago)

We revisit a construction due to Lunin and Mathur of 1/2-BPS solutions of string theory involving fivebranes, which are the magnetic duals...

### HET Seminar | Angular fractals in thermal CFT

#### Nathan Benjamin (USC)

I will discuss universal properties of thermal partition functions at high temperature and large angular fugacity, in d>2 CFTs. This...

### HET Seminar | Cosmic Colliders: High Energy Physics with First Order Phase Transitions

#### Bibhushan Shakya (DESY)

Vacuum decay through runaway first order phase transitions (FOPTs) presents a unique opportunity for particle physics and cosmology:...
