Guest Lecture : Rainer Verch

Gravity and Quantum Physics


Rainer Verch is professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Leipzig, Germany. He studied mathematics and physics in Berlin and in Cambridge, UK, and received his PhD in theoretical physics from the University of Hamburg in 1995. He became a professor in theoretical physics at the University of Leipzig in 2005. His main area of research is quantum field theory in curved spacetimes and in non-commutative geometries, relativistic aspects of quantum information, and related areas of mathematical physics. He has served as chairman of the Mathematical Physics section of the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft, and on the editorial boards of General Relativity and Gravitation and the book series Fundamental Theories of Physics, and has recently introduced an international master degree program in Mathematical Physics at the University of Leipzig. 


There are some cases where, theoretically, quantum effects are significant in the context of gravitational physics. The best known among them is the Hawking effect, stating that, due to quantum effects, black holes emit thermalradiation - but the effect is extremely small and so far has not been observed.
I will discuss such effects and also the prospects of measuring the geometry of space and time with quantum objects, and give a glimpse of the mathematics that is behind it.
