Entanglement of spacetime
Speaker(s): William Donnelly
Abstract: Entanglement is both a central feature of quantum mechanics and a powerful tool for studying quantum systems. Even empty spacetime is a highly entangled state, and this entanglement has the potential to explain puzzling thermodynamic properties of black holes. In order to apply the methods of quantu... read more

Entanglement Entropy in Loop Quantum Gravity
Speaker(s): William Donnelly
Abstract: The entanglement entropy between quantum fields inside and outside a black hole horizon is a promising candidate for the microscopic origin of black hole entropy. I will explain the motivation behind this interpretation of black hole entropy, and why it requires quantum gravity. I will then apply th... read more
