Title: Gravity and Entanglement
Date: October 17, 2019 4:00PM
Speaker: Mark Van Raamsdonk , University of British Colombia
... Abstract:
The AdS/CFT correspondence provides a quantum theory of gravity in which spacetime and gravitational physics emerge from an ordinary non-gravitational quantum system with many degrees of freedom. In this talk, I will explain how quantum entanglement between these degrees of freedom is crucial for the emergence of a classical spacetime, and describe progress in understanding how spacetime dynamics (gravitation) arises from the physics of quantum entanglement.
