Astrophysics/Cosmology Journal Club, "The (quantum) field theorist's approach to gravitational dynamics"(More about event)
Speaker: Rafael Porto, IAS
Abstract: I review the uses of effective field theory EFT) techniques, originally developed in particle physics, to solve problems in gravity. I will focus on the EFT approach to gravitational wave radiation from binary compact objects, aka NRGR, but I will also discuss EFT applications in high energy gravitational scattering, black hole dissipation/absorption, and single clock) inflationary models.
