Seminar 2: Violation of Landau-Yang Theorem from Infrared effects

IUB Room 6008

Speaker: Arshad Momen, PhD, Professor, Department of Physical Sciences, IUB. Abstract: Lorentz symmetry prevents  the  decay of a massive spin-1 particle into two massless photons, a result known as the Landau-Yang theorem . However,  infrared effects in QED can break Lorentz symmetry spontaneously. Employing  a construction by Mund et. al. which encodes this feature we […]

Journal Club 2: BTZ black hole in 2+1 dimensions

IUB Jubilee Buldig C6005

Title: BTZ black hole in 2+1 dimensions Abstract: In this article I shall review the original paper by Máximo Bañados, Claudio Teitelboim, and Jorge Zanelli - ”The Black hole in three-dimensional space-time”. The BTZ black hole is a solution to Einstein’s equations of general relativity, with negetive cosmological constant that describes a black hole in […]
