Black Holes and Higher Derivatives in Gravity

Presented by: 
Kellogg Stelle Imperial College London
Date: 
Wednesday 29th June 2016 - 14:30 to 15:30
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
Quantum corrections to the gravitational action generically include quadratic terms in the curvature. Moreover, these terms are distinguished 
among other corrections in that their inclusion renders the theory renormalisable. The talk will discuss the changes their inclusion make to 
black hole solutions and other spherically symmetric solutions of the gravitational field equations.
