High Energy Theory Seminar - IAS - Ted Jacobson, University of Maryland - “Horizon Thermodynamics and Entanglement Entropy”
I will discuss an old argument suggesting that thermodynamics of vacuum fluctuations implies that spacetime causal structure is dynamical and governedby Einstein's equation. Various probes of the consistency of this reasoning and implications for the nature of horizon entropy will be considered.
