Gravity Theory Seminar for 2017-10-13

Series: Gravity Theory Seminar
Date: Friday 13-Oct-2017
Time: 2:30 pm
Location: PSC 3150
Speaker: Dan Carney (UMD)
Title: Infrared Quantum Information

Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in long-wavelength photons and gravitons. I'll discuss information theoretic aspects of these particles. In particular I will show that photo/gravitoemission during scattering processes leads to highly decohered outgoing scattering states of charged/massive objects. Following Strominger, this may be relevant to the black hole information loss problem.
