Science Café: Black Holes, Gravity, and Cosmic Geometry

Wednesday, February 26, 2014
12:00 AM
Conor O'Neill's Traditional Irish Pub 318 S. Main Street, Ann Arbor

Dr. Kayhan Gültekin joins Lydia Bieri of the Department of Mathematics to discuss black holes.

What's inside a black hole?  What do we mean when we say space is curved? How do supermassive black holes form?  How can we describe these seemingly indescribable mathematical singularities?  How can we study them, if they are dark and far away? Why does it matter? Join Lydia Bieri of the University of Michigan Department of Mathematics and Kayhan Gültekin of the Department of Astronomy as we explore and discuss the science and math of black holes and other cosmic phenomena.
