From Scattering Amplitudes to Results in General Relativity (email p.agarwal AT qmul.ac.uk for the zoom link)

Regular Seminar Emil Bjerrum-Bohr ( Niels Bohr Institute)

14:00 QMW
room Zoom

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.
