Welcome to “The Unruh Fest”
Speaker(s): Silke Weinfurtner
Abstract:
Date: 13/08/2015 - 9:00 am

PIRSA:15080025  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Information Loss
Speaker(s): Robert Wald
Abstract: It is argued that information is lost in the process of black hole formation and evaporation.
Date: 13/08/2015 - 9:05 am

PIRSA:15080026  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
What are the laws of quantum thermodynamics?
Speaker(s): Jonathan Oppenheim
Abstract: TBA
Date: 13/08/2015 - 10:30 am

PIRSA:15080027  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Microlocal analysis in quantum field theory on curved spacetime and related topics
Speaker(s): Marek Radzikowski
Abstract: Presented is a discussion of quantum field theory on curved spacetime and of microlocal analysis, with an emphasis on the way that these two areas connected for me personally through a specific problem, namely that of resolving Kay's singularity conjecture for two point functions of a linear scalar ... read more

PIRSA:15080028  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Acceleration Radiation: The Prophet and the Heretics
Speaker(s): Stephen Fulling
Abstract: I review the contentious question, "Does a uniformly accelerated detector radiate?" As Audretsch and Muller pointed out long ago, this is partly a semantic dispute. The talk draws on recent discussions with Alex Calogeracos and George Matsas.
Date: 13/08/2015 - 2:00 pm

PIRSA:15080029  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Experimental Quantum Error Correction
Speaker(s): Raymond Laflamme
Abstract: The last decade has seen the impressive development of quantum information science, both in theory and in experiment. There are many measures that can be used to assess the achievements in the field: new algorithms, new applications and larger quantum processors, to name a few. The discovery of quan... read more

PIRSA:15080030  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Hydrodynamic simulations of rotating and non-rotating black holes
Speaker(s): Silke Weinfurtner
Abstract: In 1981 Bill discovered an analogy between the propagation of fields in the vicinity of astrophysical black holes and the that of small excitations in fluids. He postulated that this analogy allows one to test, challenge and verify, in tabletop experiments, the elusive processes of black hole m... read more

PIRSA:15080031  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
The Third Man, Exciting Events in Post War Vienna
Speaker(s): Wilhelm Nassau
Abstract:
Date: 13/08/2015 - 5:30 pm

PIRSA:15080032  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Mass gap for black hole formation in higher derivative and ghost-free gravity
Speaker(s): Valeri Frolov
Abstract: The problem of the gravitational collapse of small mass in the higher derivative and ghost free theories of gravity is discussed. It will be demonstrated how higher derivative and non-local modifications of gravity equations regularizes static and dynamical solutions. Boosting a static solution of t... read more
Date: 14/08/2015 - 9:00 am

PIRSA:15080033  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Consciousness Does Not Cause Quantum Zeno Effect
Speaker(s): Masahiro Hotta
Abstract: The quantum Zeno effect is often very controversial in the context of consciousness problems. Frequent direct measurements of a quantum system freeze its time evolution. Then what happes if an observer continuously watches a Schrodinger's cat from the start of the experiment? Naively this looks... read more
