Since the seminal papers about particle creation in an expanding Universe by Leonard Parker (1968) and the discovery of quantum radiation by Black Holes by Stephen Hawking (1975), Quantum Field Theory in Curved Space-time (QFTCS) has achieved many advances in both its technical conceptualization and in its applications to cosmology and astrophysics.
This workshop will be a unique opportunity to bring together different branches of theoretical physics (Astrophysics, cosmology, mathematical physics, etc.) around a key cornerstone such as QFTCS. It is also one of a kind in its unprecedented scope, providing a much needed unifying view of the field.
The main research lines of the workshop include, but are not limited to:
– QFT in expanding universes and in black hole geometries
– Renormalization in curved spacetime
– Semiclassical Einstein equations and the backreaction problem
– Non-perturbative effects
– Particle production in curved spacetime
– Particle detectors in QFT and relativistic quantum information
– Algebraic QFT
– QFT in strong electric fields, etc.
