Staring into the Abyss
Speaker(s): Avery Broderick
Abstract: Nearly a century after their discovery, black holes remain one of the most striking, and problematic predictions of general relativity. Even more unsettling is the fact that they actually appear to exist! With only a handful of exceptions, every galaxy contains a supermassive behemoth, millions to b... read more

Quantum Gravity Effects in Black Holes and Gravitational Waves
Abstract: Quantum-gravity effects as noise for gravity-wave detectors
I discuss a mechanism that can allow Planck scale effects to manifest themselves as a source of lof-frequency noise for interferometers.  The mechanism requires a discrete formulatio... read more

The Other 99%: The Life and Times of the Black Hole Next Door
Speaker(s): Avery Broderick
Abstract: Black holes lead a double life, simultaneously the dark, enigmatic, hairless consequence of general relativity and the powerful engines lurking at the hearts of galaxies with cosmological consequences.

Rewriting the Thermal History of the Universe: The Cosmological Implications of TeV Blazars
Speaker(s): Avery Broderick
Abstract: A recently discovered class of active galactic nuclei, TeV luminous blazars, constitute a small fraction of the power output of black holes. Nevertheless, there are suggestions that unlike the UV and X-ray luminosity of quasars, the very-high energy gamma-ray emission from the TeV blazars can be the... read more

The Event Horizon Telescope: Imaging Black Hole Horizons
Speaker(s): Avery Broderick
Abstract: Black holes are associated with a variety of the most extreme and counter-intuitive phenomena in astronomy and physics. However, despite the passage of nearly 40 years since the discovery of the first strong black hole candidate, we have scant evidence that general relativity provides an accurate de... read more

The Hairstyles of Compact Objects
Speaker(s): Avery Broderick
Abstract: While gravitational waves offer a new, and in many ways clean, view of compact objects, most of what we presently know about these has been obtained by careful study of their messy interactions with surrounding material. I will summarize what we know about a variety of potential gravitational wave s... read more
