Eric Bergshoeff (NL): Applied Newton-Cartan Geometry

Dienstag, 21. März 2017, 14:15

Ort:  Erwin-Schrödinger-Hörsaal , Boltzmanngasse 5, 5. Stock

I will give an introduction into the non-relativistic version of Riemannian geometry, which is called Newton-Cartan geometry. The corresponding non-relativistic gravity theory, called Newton-Cartan gravity, has received a renewed attention due to unexpected applications as a new tool to examine the (non-perturbative) properties of non-relativistic quantum field theories.
I will explain the basic construction of Newton-Cartan gravity plus some of its
generalizations thereby putting an emphasis on how these different theories
can be obtained by taking limits or reductions of General Relativity.
