Event Description

I will present a case for the striking resemblance between bubbles of anti-de Sitter (AdS) within Minkowski spacetime and black holes. These are horizonless solutions of Einstein’s equations that are motivated by string theory. We will explore both stationary and rotating AdS bubbles, examining their distinct features. I will also touch upon observable signatures that could distinguish AdS bubbles from black holes in our universe.
