"Massive AdS Gravity, Holography and String Theory" by April 24: Costas Bachas (Ecole Normale, Paris)

Tuesday, April 24, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
TEP Seminar

After briefly reviewing some facts about the Higgsing of gravity, I will describe a class of AdS4 vacua of string theor  in which the lowest-lying graviton is massive, and derive  a universal formula for its mass. This is a (top-down) example of massive gravity in an ultraviolet complete theory.
