Lessons of the Effective Field Theory Treatment of Quantum General Relativity
Speaker: Prof. John Donoghue
Affiliation: Department of Physics, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Date and time: February 14th, 4 pm
Abstract: I will provide an overview of the use of Effective Field Theory to study quantum aspects of General Relativity. This provides rigorous results in quantum gravity. A few low energy theorems will be highlighted. Then I describe some of the lessons which should be extracted from this approach. Finally, I will discuss some of the limitations and challenges of the EFT treatment.
