    Prof. Hing-Tong Cho (Tamkang University, Taiwan)

    Good morning All,

    The National Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Mandelstam Institute for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics, would like to invite to its coming talk in the theoretical physics seminar series, entitled:

    "Stochastic Gravity in Conformally-flat Spacetimes"

    to be presented by Prof. Hing-Tong Cho (Tamkang University, Taiwan)

    Abstract: The theory of stochastic gravity takes into account the effects of quantum field fluctuations onto the classical spacetime. The essential physics can be understood from the analogous Brownian motion model. We shall next concentrate on the case with conformally-flat spacetimes. Our main concern is to derive the so-called noise kernels. We shall also describe our on-going program to investigate the Einstein-Langevin equation in these spacetimes.

    Dates: Tuesday, 17th February 2015
    Venue: The Frank Nabarro lecture theatre, P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10 - TODAY

    I hope you shall all be able to attend,

    Yours sincerely,

    Alan S. Cornell
