Atlantic GR Seminar: Turkuler Durgut (MUN)

October 28, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Asymptotically Anti-de Sitter Gravitational Solitons

In this talk, I will consider the stability of asymptotically anti-de Sitter gravitational solitons. These are globally stationary, asymptotically (globally) AdS spacetimes with positive energy but without horizons. I will introduce my ongoing project investigating solutions of the linear wave equation in this class of backgrounds. I will provide analytical expressions for the behavior of the scalar field near the soliton bubble and at spatial infinity. The special BPS (supersymmetric) case will then be examined as an example of a solution where stable trapping occurs. This project is joint work with Dr. Hari K. Kunduri and Dr. Robie A. Hennigar.

The Atlantic General Relativity 2020 online postdoc/student seminar series is in the tradition of the annual AGR meetings, providing a forum not only for students and postdocs to present their research and make professional contacts but also to facilitate connections and collaborations between all Atlantic Canadian relativists. The series is student-organized and includes all areas of classical and quantum gravity. Talks will occur on the last Wednesday of every month, with each session consisting of two 30 minute talks. If you would like to attend, please email the organizers for connection details.
