The effective field theory governing these objects provides insights into gravitational collapse and black hole formation.",https://events.umich.edu/event/125094,"West Hall",340,"West Hall",,"High Energy Theory Seminar","Leinweber Center for Theoretical Physics High Energy Theory Seminars"

This provides spin-refined information -- namely the statistics of spins of local operators -- valid for all conformal field theories, that in some sense generalizes modular invariance of d=2 CFTs.

Despite being light these strings cannot be approximated by particles. As a result, they can cause effects that distinguish string theory from particle physics. We attempt to describe some of these effects",https://events.umich.edu/event/126263,"West Hall",340,"West Hall",,"High Energy Theory Seminar

This talk will cover recent developments and challenges in the physics for understanding such frameworks, as well as applications to solve some of the fundamental problems in particle physics: the production of dark matter and the baryon asymmetry of the Universe.",https://events.umich.edu/event/124226,"West Hall",340,"West Hall",,"High Energy Theory Seminar
