Séminaire de Physique ThéoriqueNewton-Cartan Gravity in Action
Eric Bergshoeff (Université de Groningue, Pays Bas)
Wednesday 15 November 2017 14:00 - Tours - Salle 1180 (Bât E2)
I will give a short introduction into the frame-independent formulation of Newtonian gravity, called Newton-Cartan Gravity, and explain why there is a renewed interest into non-relativistic gravity. As a particular application I will discuss a recent proposal for an Effective Field Theory describing a massive spin-2 mode (the so-called GMP mode) in the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect.
