SUMMARY:Black Holes to Algebraic Curves: Consequences of the Weak Gravity Conjecture\, Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)\, Tom Rudelius\, Institute for Advanced Study\, Princeton
DESCRIPTION:The Weak Gravity Conjecture holds that in any consistent theory of quantum gravity\, gravity must be the weakest force. This simple proposition has surprisingly nontrivial physical consequences\, which in the case of supersymmetric string/M-theory compactifications lead to nontrivial geometric consequences for Calabi-Yau manifolds. In this talk we will describe these conjectured geometric consequences in detail and show how they are realized in concrete examples\, deriving new results about 5d supersymmetric black holes in the process.
