The Multicritical Universe
Speaker(s): Petr Horava
Abstract: This talk reviews the idea of quantum gravity with anisotropic scaling, and presents a scenario in which this theory of gravity is coupled to matter, described by the standard model or beyond.This "multicritical universe" scenario predicts systematic, energy-dependent, calculable Lorentz-violating corrections to the relativistic dispersion relations of matter.
