Effective field theory approach to gravitational dynamics (1/3)

by Rafael Porto (DESY)

Tuesday, May 7, 2019 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at DESY ( Seminar Room 4b, building 1b )
Notkestraße 85, 22607 Hamburg

The lectures will introduce the effective field theory (EFT) framework to tackle the two-body problem in gravity. I will illustrate the basic ideas and concepts with hands-on calculations, emphasizing the analytic/computational side and field-theoretical ideas. It will be oriented towards theory students with some basic background in quantum field theory and general relativity.
