Aspects of analogue gravity and some related issues

Time:Jun. 12, 16:00 - 17:00

Venue:ZOOM: 559 700 6085 PW: BIMSA

Organizer:ZOOM: 559 700 6085 PW: BIMSA

Speaker:Kjell Rosquist (University of Stockholm)


The subject of analogue (or simulated) gravity has become a large area with the number of papers being of the order of a thousand. I will discuss a few types of analogues focussing on the relation between the actual gravitational field and and a fluid simulation of the field. In a sense this is directly related to specific coordinate systems for the gravitational field.

Concrete simulations for the Schwarzschild and Kerr gravitational fields will be presented. At the end of the talk I will also present a demonstrational analogue of the Schwarzschild field which relates to recent astronomical observations.

      Gravity: bulk, boundary, corners

      AbstractI will review four-dimensional gravity in the coframe-and-connection formulation (a.k.a. Palatini–Cartan formalism) and what it entails on boundaries (e.g., on Cauchy surfaces) and on corners (e.g., surfaces at infinity or surfaces around singularities in space). This full analysis will require the BV, the BFV and related formalisms and their interplay.About the speakerAlberto Cattaneo...
