Hirosi Ooguri, Caltech & Kavli IPMU, "Constraints on Quantum Gravity"
KICP colloquium: Feb 20 @ 3:30 PM, ERC 161
Superstring theory is our best candidate for the ultimate unification of general relativity and quantum mechanics. Although predictions of the theory are typically at extremely high energy and out of reach of current experiments and observations, several non-trivial constraints on its low energy effective theory have been found.
