Fields on Curved Backgrounds (FoCus)

Principal Investigator: Stefano Ansoldi

Areas:

  • Early Universe
  • Theory and Phenomenology of Gravity

Abstract: The theory of quantum fields on curved backgrounds is a classic subject in theoretical physics that has contributed to the development of fundamental and far reaching ideas, from quantum cosmology to black hole thermodynamics. In this more general framework than standard quantum field theory, we need new conceptual tools, as, often, we cannot consistently use standard techniques and ideas. With this proposal we aim to create a collaborative environment to study in detail open problems in the field, and the related phenomenology, with an interdisciplinary approach.
