Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: What is non-relativistic gravity and is it holographic?

Presented by Jelle Hartong, University of Edinburgh

9 November 2018 13:00 in CM101

I will discuss non-relativistic limits of general relativity that lead to a covariant off-shell formulation of Newtonian gravity. Further, I will discuss near-BPS limits of strings on AdS5xS5 that point towards holographic dualities between non-relativistic strings and quantum mechanical limits of N=4 super Yang-Mills theory.
