Making Quantum Gravity Computable

Conference Date: 
Monday, June 19, 2017 (All day) to Friday, June 23, 2017 (All day)
Scientific Areas: 
Quantum Gravity

 

Quantum gravity research provides us with fascinating models for space-time at the smallest scales.  However, a bottleneck common to many approaches is the extraction of the large-scale dynamics for these models.  This will not only provide a crucial consistency test but also be essential for making sought-after predictions for future experiments.  Numeric tools will be inescapable for this task.  This school will therefore provide an introduction to these numerical tools and their applications to a broad array of quantum gravity approaches.  The school is aimed at junior researchers (PhD students/postdocs) with a quantum gravity background or interested in applying numerical tools to quantum gravity.

Topics covered include:

  • Introduction to Monte Carlo methods
  • Monte Carlo methods in Dynamical Triangulations
  • Introduction to Tensor Networks methods
  • Coarse graining of Spin Foams
  • Numerical tools in the Asymptotic Safety approach
  • Numerical tools for Loop Quantum Cosmology

If you are an invited speaker to this event, Perimeter Institute staff will contact you directly to coordinate hotel accommodations on your behalf.


For students accepted into the summer school:

Perimeter Institute has reserved a limited number of rooms at Wilfrid Laurier University. The location is 200 King Street North and is a fifteen minute walk to the institute.  The residence is air-conditioned and offers private bedrooms with a semi-private washroom. Each bedroom contains a single bed, sink, desk and closet unit. There are lounges on the floor with a fridge, stove, and microwave. The rate is $44.00/night and includes parking and wifi.

Students are responsible for contacting the university directly to make their own reservations and should do so here: https://accommodations.laurierconferences.ca/Default.asp

Under the purpose of their visit, they should reference "Making Quantum Gravity Computable".
