Some scribbly talks from les Houches: Dyson-Schwinger equations I, II, III, and the animations from talk 3. June 17, 18, and 21, 2010. I also gave a fourth talk on the blackboard which was about spanning forest polynomials.
CMS Winter meeting 2010 talk. I had more material than time, so the later part of it isn't filled in.
Joint Mathematics Meeting 2011 talk in Victor Moll's session. The audience voted to see the knots and matroids instead of the picture proof of double triangle, so the latter is blank.
CMS Summer meeting 2012 talk about the chord diagram expansion.
This was supposed to be a bit of an overview for a physics audience along with a presentation of the QED Landau pole result, but it wasn't well timed nor well tailored to the audience. Perhaps it is more useful as slides.
My CanaDAM 2015 talk about the renormalization group equation.
Coast Combinatorics talk about leading log expansions.
CMS winter meeting talk about skew Schur function identities by Hopf algebras.
Les Houches workshop on structures in local quantum field theory talk about the c2 invariant.
