Thursday 7th December: STP Seminar – “Quantum Aspects of Black Hole and Fuzzy Sphere in String Theory”

Title: Quantum Aspects of Black Hole and Fuzzy Sphere in String Theory

Speaker: Yoshifumi Hyakutake (Ibaraki University, Japan)

Abstract: One of important directions in superstring theory is to reveal quantum nature of black hole. In this talk we embed Schwarzschild black hole into superstring theory or M-theory, which we call a smeared black hole, and resolve quantum corrections to it. Then we boost the smeared black hole along the 11th direction and construct a smeared quantum black 0-brane in 10 dimensions. Quantum aspects of the thermodynamic for these black objects are investigated in detail. We also discuss fuzzy configurations which will correspond to the microscopic description of the black hole.

Time: Thursday 7th December 2017, 2.00pm.

Place: Lecture Room, School of Theoretical Physics, DIAS, 10 Burlington Road, Dublin 4.
