KAW Grant for Exact Results in Gauge and String Theories

Konstantin Zarembo, Nordita, and Joseph Minahan, Uppsala University (PI), have been awarded 39.9 MSEK over 5 years from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation for the project "Exact results in gauge and string theories".

The KAW Foundation has approved grants totaling SEK 759 million for 25 research projects considered to be of the highest international class, and offering potential for future scientific breakthroughs.

John Wettlaufer Elected Foreign Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences

At the General Meeting on 7 October, John Wettlaufer, Nordita, Yale University, CT, USA, and University of Oxford, UK, was elected foreign member of the Academy's Class for Physics.

John Wettlaufer is part time Professor at Nordita in Stockholm, A.M. Bateman Professor of Geophysics, Mathematics and Physics at Yale University, CT, USA, and guest Professor in Mathematics at University of Oxford, Great Britain. He was Tage Erlander Guest Professor at Nordita 2012.

Malcolm Perry on Resolution of Information Loss Paradox

Malcolm Perry of Cambridge University, who together with Stephen Hawking and Andrew Strominger is working on a new proposal for resoving the black hole information paradox, presents the background to this proposal in a talk at AlbaNova on 27 August 2015.

Watch video of Hawking's talk on the same subject at the the Hawking Radiation Conference, 24—29 August 2015, hosted by Nordita.

The last day of the conference several of the participants joined in a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session, answering questions from all over the world about black holes, Hawking radiation, information loss and other quastions about theoretical physics.
