Dear ANITA and ASA members.

Next Wednesday 11th June at 1pm (AEST) ANITA will hold its next online lecture: "A New Window on Inflation: Cosmological Perturbations and Gravitational Waves", by David Parkinson from the University of Queensland.

This lecture will be of particular interest to those who wish to better understand the recent BICEP2 results.

All are welcome to join! The target audience will range from undergrad to postdoc, however anyone interested is sure to get something out of it.

More details (including lecture notes and slides) are available at: http://anita.edu.au/lectures/

Thanks, and see you there!
Darren Croton & Chris Power

The lecture will be held through Google Hangouts on Air.
You'll first need a Google account (e.g. gmail). Log in to it.
If you've never done a Google Hangout before you'll need to install a plugin for your browser. See https://www.google.com/tools/dlpage/hangoutplugin
On Google+ search for "Anita Chapter" and head to our page.
Alternatively, go directly to our Chapter page here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104967001091880466806/posts
You'll see a post for the Hangout on Air at around 12pm - hit play and enjoy!
Some hints for a better experience:
You can breakout the small video window on the Google+ page by opening it in YouTube. This gives you a much bigger view.
Post any comments/questions under the video in the comments box on the Google+ or YouTube page. We'll try and answer them in real-time.
I don't believe that comments are updated automatically; you may need to reload the page to see the latest.
All lectures will be hosted on our ANITA YouTube page for later viewing.
