A holographer’s perspective on quantum gravity from Anti-de Sitter space

13.09.2019 14:15 – 15:15

Merging quantum mechanics and general relativity into a unified framework of quantum gravity remains one of the
biggest challenges of modern physics. It must be addressed if we are to understand what happens inside black holes or at
the very beginning of our universe.  In this talk, I will explain how this question can be addressed in Anti-de Sitter
space, a universe with a negative cosmological constant. I will describe how the AdS/CFT correspondence has opened new
avenues to tackle quantum gravity where its holographic nature is manifest.
