Theoretical Physics Colloquium
Quantum Gravity from the Bottom Up
by Prof. Jared Kaplan (Johns Hopkins University)
Tuesday, November 28, 2017 from to (Asia/Kolkata)
I will describe several different ways of thinking about the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular I'll discuss how locality in d+1 spacetime dimensions can arise from a d-dimensional theory. I will also highlight major open problems, including the black hole information paradox, and strategies that may lead to its resolution.
