MCAIM Colloquium Seminar

Quantum Field Theory in Curved Spacetime
Wednesday, October 5, 2022
3:00-4:00 PM
4448 East Hall Map
Quantum field theory in curved spacetime is a theory wherein matter is treated fully in accord with the principles of quantum field theory but gravity is treated classically in accord with general relativity. It is not expected to be an exact theory of nature, but it should provide a good approximate description in circumstances where the quantum effects of gravity itself do not play a dominant role, and it has provided us with fundamental insights into phenomena such as those involving black holes. This talk will give an introduction to quantum field theory in curved spacetime, with emphasis on the conceptual and mathematical issues arising in the formulation of the theory.

Talk in person in East Hall 4448 and on Zoom:
