Title: Lorentz Invariance in Generic Curved Spacetimes and Quantum Gravity
Speaker: Prof. Hoi-Lai Yu (Academia Sinica Institute of Physics)
Time: 3:00 pm Sep. 27th (Thur.), 2018
Place: 319 Theoretical Physics Division
Abstract: The speaker will start from the basic one test particle motion in general curved spacetime to examine the natural of Lorentz symmetry which had been mis-interpret since Minkowski. He will also discuss the step towards a consistent quantum gravity program.
