Aspects of de Sitter spacetimes

Triangular Seminar Dionysios Anninos (Amsterdam)

15:00 QMW
room Fogg Lecture Theatre

We overview some aspects of asymptotically de Sitter spacetimes at the classical and quantum level. We discuss some features of the late time de Sitter wavefunction. We briefly touch upon some properties of the relation between de Sitter space and Euclidean conformal theories, broadly referred to as the dS/CFT correspondence. Finally, time permitting, we will discuss some similarities and differences between the cosmological dS horizon and a more standard black hole horizon.
