Theoretical Frontiers in Black Holes and Cosmology: Theoretical Perspective in High Energy Physics

Front Cover
Renata Kallosh, Emanuele Orazi
Springer, Jul 16, 2016 - Science - 252 pages

These lecture notes are dedicated to the most recent theoretical applications of Black Hole solutions in high-energy physics. The main motivation of this volume is to present the latest black hole backgrounds that are relevant for gauge/gravity correspondence. Leading scientists in the field explain effective techniques for finding singular and cosmological solutions embedded in gauged supergravity, shedding light on underlying properties and symmetries. Starting from a basic level, the mathematical structures underlying black holes and cosmologies are revealed, helping the reader grasp the connection between theoretical approaches and physical observations with insights into possible future developments from both a theoretical and experimental point of view.

The topics covered in this volume are based on lectures delivered during the “Theoretical Frontiers in Black Holes and Cosmology” school, held in Natal in June 2015.

About the author (2016)

One of the Editors, Prof. Renata Kallosh, is a well-known theoretical physicist. She is a professor at Department of Physics at Stanford University and is known for her contributions to string theory, in particular finding (along with Shamit Kachru, Andrei Linde and Sandip Trivedi) the first models of accelerated expansion of the universe in low energy supersymmetric string theory, referred to as “KKLT” models after the authors’ last names.
