Event details

The last decade has witnessed dramatic progress in observational black hole astronomy. At the same time, exciting new insights - but not a solution - have emerged concerning the infamous quantum black hole information paradox. The recent theoretical and experimental progress hinge on the universal critical behavior and emergent symmetries exhibited by black holes. An elementary presentation of aspects of these topics and their interplay will be given.

This colloquium can be attended in person OR on line. To attend in person please register on Indico below.
