Black Holes — From Physics to ChemistryExport this event to calendar

Robert Mann

Robert MannBlack holes are amongst the strangest objects in the universe.  Absorbing all forms of matter, they emit random radiation due to quantum effects that result in some of the strangest paradoxes in physics.  These same effects indicate that black holes can actually behave like chemical systems, having triple points like that of water and having phase transitions like that of a liquid/gas system or even like superfluid helium. 

This talk will introduce you to black holes, their strange physical properties,  their “everyday” chemical properties, and their quantum paradoxes that remain unsolved.
