CANCELLED

Astronomy Seminar Series

Will Kinney, University of Buffalo, SUNY

Recent developments in String Theory center on the idea of the "Swampland", which is defined as the set of low-energy effective theories which do not have any counterpart in a complete theory of quantum gravity. I will provide a pedagogical introduction to the Swampland concept, with a particular focus on implications for cosmology. There may be some snark.
