Introduction to Quantum Field Theory and Curved Space-Time


William Unruh (U. of British Columbia, Hagler Institute, Texas A&M)



Mitchell Physics Building

College Station, Texas 77843-4242

Event Details

William George "Bill" Unruh is a world-renowned physicist, working at the University of British Columbia, who, among his other important discoveries, predicted that an accelerating observer will observe black-body radiation where an inertial observer would observe none. This effect is now broadly referred to as Unruh radiation. As a special event, Professor Unruh, a Faculty Fellow of the Hagler Institute for Advanced Study at Texas A&M University, will deliver two lectures, as a part of the IQSE/AMO quantum optics seminar series, held jointly with the OSA student chapter meeting, introducing the fundamentals of quantum field theory and curved space-time.
