Stefano Liberati (SISSA) - "Three small lessons from analogue gravity”

High Energy Theory Seminars

The analogue gravity framework uses condensed matter systems to simulate phenomena characteristics of quantum field theory in curved spacetimes (e.g. cosmological particle production or black hole evaporation).  In this seminar I will review the state of this field and explore its extension towards the simulation of the emergent gravity paradigm. In doing so I will discuss three lessons that we can draw from this framework about long standing puzzles  in black hole thermodynamics and cosmology.
