Theory Seminar (High Energy/Cosmology)
Replica wormholes, the black hole information paradox, and cosmology
Time: 2:00 pm
Place: For zoom link, sign up at:
Speaker: Edgar Shaghoulian, University of Pennsylvania
Abstract: I will introduce the black hole information paradox and briefly review the role that replica wormholes play in obtaining black hole evolution consistent with unitarity. I will then discuss general consistency conditions that guide the search for such nontrivial saddles in the gravitational path integral, with several examples in cosmological spacetimes.

Department Coffee Hour
Time: 3:30 pm
Abstract: Join us weekly for an informal virtual coffee hour! Catch up with others in the department, tell us how things are going, and impress everyone with your Zoom background skills. Coffee Hour is open to any and all faculty, staff, and students in the department. Sometimes we have a topic, and we'll try to get that topic posted here in advance or sent out by email before each coffee hour.
