Public Lecture — The Nature of Cosmic Geometry
16 Feb 2023 • online, United Kingdom
Organizer:
Institute of Physics (IOP)
Abstract:
This talk will provide an overview of the intricacies and the interplay between black holes and the motion of matter-energy with respect to the local structure of spacetime that surrounds them. A general description of the structure of spacetime surrounding a rotating black hole will also be provided.

INMS Workshop — Singularity formation in general relativity and dispersive PDEs
29 May 2023 - 02 Jun 2023 • ICMS, Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Organizer:
ICMS - International Centre for Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
This workshop aims to bring together experts on singularity formation from mathematical general relativity as well as from dispersive PDE to map out the current frontiers of the fields, stimulate the transfer of ideas, foster discussions and new collaborations, and to inspire the new generation of researchers to take up the challenges this field holds. On the side of general relativity the workshop focuses on the topics of naked singularities, singularities inside black holes, as well as cosmological singularities. On the side of dispersive PDE the workshop aims to discuss the characterisation of general singularities and blow-up dynamics.

Black holes: bridges between number theory and holographic quantum information
04 Sep 2023 - 20 Dec 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Abstract:
Defining a theory of quantum gravity remains one of the most challenging problems at the cutting edge of research in mathematical and theoretical physics. Unlocking this problem implies constructing a quantum field theoretic description of gravity which fully elucidates how a quantum field theory encodes gravitational spacetime background solutions. Much of the progress in shaping the language and the framework of this problem owes its genesis to a specific subset of problems in quantum gravity, namely those dealing with understanding the organisation of information in black holes.

Workshop BLHW01 — Number theory, machine learning and quantum black holes
02 Oct 2023 - 06 Oct 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Abstract:
This workshop aims to bring together researchers from number theory, automorphic representation theory and string theory to explore how automorphic forms that encode degeneracies of BPS could be related to and feed into information theoretic concepts such as quantum error corrections, applied to BPS and near-extremal black hole backgrounds, and to develop machine learning techniques to unveil some of the hitherto undefined automorphic structures underlying the generating functions for BPS black hole microstates in superstring models. This event is the first workshop of the 4-month long BLH programme at the INI centred around the same topics.

Workshop BLHW02 — Machine learning toolkits and integrability techniques in gravity
06 Nov 2023 - 10 Nov 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Abstract:
This workshop aims to bring together researchers in solution-generating techniques and integrability, as well as Riemann-Hilbert factorization problems in gravity. It will also bring in expertise in AI and machine learning as a tool, especially in solving factorization problems, and in developing new matrix factorization methods that will be of service to solving gravitational PDEs. This event is the second workshop in a 4-month long BLH programme at the INI centred around the same topics.

Workshop BLHW03 — Bridges between holographic quantum information and quantum gravity
27 Nov 2023 - 01 Dec 2023 • Cambridge , United Kingdom
Organizer:
Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI)
Abstract:
This workshop aims to bring together researchers in quantum gravity and in holographic quantum information to take advantage of the rapid recent progress in these streams of research with a view to tackling outstanding questions related to black hole entropy and, more generally, the structure of information in quantum gravity. This is the last of the 3 workshops of a 4-month long BLH programme at the INI centred around the same topics.
