High Energy Theory Seminar

Ted Jacobson (Maryland)

Aspects of Aethereal Gravity


I will discuss deformations of general relativity incorporating a dynamical preferred rest frame (Einstein-aether theory) or absolute time function (Horava gravity). The talk will touch on a variety of topics, such as the relation between these theories, their stability, viability, cosmological features, black holes, and Hamiltonian structure.
