The purpose of these tables is to maintain a schedule of scientific talks and discussions relevant to your program.


Activities marked in red are informal, focused discussions on particular topics. The discussion leader will briefly introduce the topic on the blackboard and highlight some important outstanding questions (~10min). This opening will be followed by a discussion by all participants. Feel free to attend if the topic matches your interests.

Before you depart, PLEASE fill out an activity report and report your publications to KITP. The KITP needs feedback from the community: this not only serves help to improve and develop our services; it also provides an evaluation tool that is crucial to our continued funding.

Any manuscript for which the KITP's facilities are used, and any research which is started and/or completed at the KITP should have the following acknowledgment: This research was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. NSF PHY11-25915. Please also list the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics as an institutional affiliation, if at all possible.
