Spinning Black Holes Made Simple

Regular Seminar Alfredo Guevara (Harvard University)

14:00 IC
room Huxley 342

I will cover some of the most recent developments on classical spinning black holes and their perturbations. The reinterpretation of them in terms of a classical limit of QFT three-point amplitudes, where the black hole is modeled as a massive spinning particle, sheds light on many fundamental properties such as integrability, the Newman-Janis construction, and the so-called classical double copy relating the solution to gauge theory.
