There are some instances where the physics of black holes is remarkably analogue to the physics of fluids and soap bubbles. It turns out that this is not a coincindence since in the last years a formal map was established between Einstein’s theory of General Relativity and the theory of fluids (hydrodynamics).
In this talk I will describe a series examples where black holes indeed behave very much like fluids.
SPEAKER Oscar Dias is a professor and member of the String Theory and Gravity Group in the Department of Mathematical Sciences and STAG, University of Southampton. Before arriving in Southampton, initially as an STFC Ernest Rutherford Fellow, Oscar Dias was a researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (Canada), at the Kavli Institute (California), at the University of Barcelona, at DAMTP (Cambridge) and at the Commissariat for Atomic Energy (France). He does research on black holes and holographic dualities.
We will open the meeting from 7pm so people can settle in, chat etc. There will be a break between talk and Q&A when people can chat etc. It's not the same as live but closer than I thought
A recording will be available after the event on YouTube.
