Bethe Colloquium by Zvi Bern

January 2022

The first Bethe Colloquium in 2022 is scheduled for Thursday, January 27, at 4:15 p.m.

  • Zvi Bern (Los Angeles)
  • From Quantum Scattering Amplitudes to Gravitational Waves
  • Zoom meeting

Abstract: The remarkable detection of gravitational waves by the LIGO/Virgo collaboration has opened a new window into the cosmos. In this colloquium we explain how particle theorists can help out with calculations directly relevant for gravitational-wave emission from compact astrophysical objects. The past decade has seen enormous advances in our ability to compute quantum scattering amplitudes making seemingly impossible calculations tractable. These advances include ideas such as the duality between color and kinematics, double-copy relations, generalized unitarity, and improved integration methods. After introducing these concepts, we explain how these ideas are transferred to produce new state-of-the-art calculations for the binary black hole inspiral problem.
