Quantum physics of black holes
Public lecture in honour of the International Year of Astronomy by Dr. Stefan Fredenhagen, Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) on Friday, 9 January at 7 pm. Location: Bruno H. Bürgel Observatory, Heerstraße 531, 13593 Berlin.
With the launch of the LHC (Large Hardon Collider) accelerator small things made big news: microscopically small black holes, which could arise during the course of experiments. But why do black holes have something to do with quantum physics at all?
A lecture on particle physics and gravitation and their possible connection based on string theory.
Dr. Stefan Fredenhagen is a researcher in the Department of Quantum Gravitation and Unified Theories at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute/AEI) in Potsdam.
