theoretical physics delivered at the Hebrew
University by Prof. Stephen Shenker on

5/2017 A TV appearance on time
travel (Hebrew, channel KAN).
5/2017 A hypothesis regarding a
relation between bat evolution and a period of
darkness following an asteroid impact
appears in "The KPg event as a key to bat
evolution", see here.
4/2017 The SFI method is used to
achieve a novel evaluation of a Feynman diagram in
"The Vacuum Seagull: evaluating a 3loop
Feynman diagram with 3 mass scales,
see here.
1/2017 Recognized as
Excellent teacher of the Hebrew
University for previous school year.
8/2016 Michael (Misha)
Smolkin joins the faculty of the
theoretical High Energy group.
8/2016 Presented "Effective
black hole degrees of freedom at low
frequencies" at the Inward Bound
conference on Black Holes and Emergent Spacetime,
1720 August 2016, NORDITA.
6/2016 "
Bubble diagram through the Symmetries of
Feynman Integrals method" appears.
The Symmetries of Feynman Integrals (SFI) method
is generalized to include diagrams with external
legs, and the 1loop propagator diagram ("the
bubble") is analyzed and its value is reproduced
through solving the SFI equations.
4/2016 The Racah Institute hires
Yonit Hochberg and Eric Kuflik
thereby establishing a longawaited for group in
High Energy Phenomenology. They defer their
arrival to the following year.
4/2016 "The algebraic locus
of Feynman integrals" appears.
It defines a certain locus in the parameter space
where a Feynman integral can be reduced to a
linear combination of contracted diagrams.
11/2015 Joined the iCore
grant and Center
of Research Excellence in The Quantum Universe.
8/2015 The group mourns the
passing of Prof.
Jacob Bekenstein, a black hole pioneer
and a model physicist.
7/2015 "Symmetries of Feynman
integrals and the Integration By Parts Method"
appears.
This work associates with Integration By Parts, a
method to compute Feynman integrals having some
1000 citations, a group action on parameter space
and studies its consequences.
