Saturday Morning Physics
Black Holes and Chaos in String Theory


Add to Cal
  • Host Department: Physics
  • Date: 03/13/2010
  • Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

  • Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building

  • Description:

    String theory is the only consistent theory of quantum gravity and has already explained important microscopic aspects of some black holes. In this talk, Professor Pando-Zayas will consider the motion of some strings around black holes and show that in some cases this motion is chaotic. Additionally, Professor Pando-Zayas will argue that this chaos might provide a window into interesting processes in black holes physics such as the information loss paradox.
