Glimpses of phenomena that underlie black holes, other extreme physics

June 28, 2019

Applying quantum mechanics to gravitational systems or curved spacetimes is one exciting area in the exploration of the not-yet-understood physics of quantum gravity. 

The Chin group has proposed a new method to study quantum systems in curved spacetimes on the basis of simulation of quantum systems in an accelerating frame.  This originates from the equivalence principle that physics in a gravitational field cannot be distinguished from that in an accelerating frame on the basis of local measurements.
