New Horizons for Holography

Project description

Study investigates the holographic complexity of rotating black holes

Black holes are among the strangest and most fascinating objects in the universe. Statistical physics describes them as thermodynamic ensembles that possess very high entropy, proportional to the area of their event horizon. Black hole entropy provides precious quantitative information about the microscopic structure of quantum gravity: its holographic behaviour suggests that the quantum degrees of freedom of gravity are encoded in a lower-dimensional field theory. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SPINBHMICRO project will use the AdS/CFT correspondence, a major component of string theory, to explain the microstructure of extremal rotating black holes. The project will also investigate the energy extraction process from fast-spinning black holes.
