  • Dr. James Hartle, UCSB, The Future of Gravity
    of its most basic predictions gravitational waves has never been detected on Earth Gravitational physics is concerned with some of the most exotic large scale phenomena in the universe black holes pulsars quasars the final destiny of stars the Big Bang and the universe itself But gravitational physics is also concerned with the microscopic quantum structure of space and time and the unification of all forces Gravity is thus important on both the largest and smallest scales considered in contemporary physics This talk will give a broad brush survey of the present state of our understanding of gravity and the dramatic prospects for improvements in that understanding from new experiments in the next decade About the Speaker James Hartle has been a member of the UCSB physics department since 1966 His scientific work is concerned with the application of Einstein s relativistic theory of gravity general relativity to realistic astrophysical situations especially cosmology He has contributed to the understanding of gravitational waves relativistic stars and black holes He is currently interested in the quantum origin of the universe and the earliest moments of the big bang when the subjects of quantum mechanics quantum gravity and cosmology overlap He is a
