Welcome to the official Wikispace for the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics program on

This page is a repository for resources and conversations between program participants. It is meant as a supplement to the official program page that features the full program description, video and audio recording of all related KITP seminars and discussions. These are archived along with materials associated with those seminars and discussions.

Program participants and researchers in related areas who are following the program are encouraged to edit these pages and add new pages to include additional links to papers and engage in discussions over distance.

To edit a page simply hit the edit button at the top of the page. To add a page click on the Make a New Page item on the left. After making a new page make sure to link it to this page so people can reach it from here. For instructions on linking pages see Help in the upper right. In addition, every page has a discussion board attached. To peruse the discussion board and add your 2 cents hit the comments item on the top of the page.

Here are the pages people have generated so far:


Have fun!
