Emil Bjerrum-Bohr (Zoom) - From Scattering Amplitudes to Results in General Relativity

When: Thursday, May 28, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Where: Zoom,

Speaker: Emil Bjerrum-Bohr

Abstract:

Gravity is a fundamental theory of physics, but so weak, that we still know very little about it. A new exciting development is that the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) can now measure the effects when massive black holes collide in the Universe. This has stimulated many new and interesting studies of gravitational interactions. I will in this talk discuss recent computational advances and discuss how to derive results for observables in general relativity from amplitudes.
