QG group meeting: Interacting Black Holes and Massive Higher Spin Fields, part 2
QG group meeting.
Speaker: Mirian Tsulaia.
Title: Interacting Black Holes and Massive Higher Spin Fields (part2).
Abstract: The detection of gravitational waves from merging black hole binaries triggered a search for an efficient theoretical description.One such approach is a field theoretical description of interacting black holes in terms of massive higher spin fields. We shall give a brief introduction to massive higher spin fields and their connection to black hole physics and gravitational waves.
The talks will consist of the parts:
A. Worldline description of Schwarzschild and Kerr black holes
B. Massive Higher Spin Fields
C. Spinor Helicity Formalism for fields with nonzero mass
and the connection between A, B and C
