SUMMARY:THE 24TH CAPRA MEETING ON RADIATION REACTION IN GENERAL RELATIVITY

ra meeting is an annual workshop on the topic of radiation reaction in gen
eral relativity. The primary focus of these workshops is the development o
f self-force techniques to model extreme mass ratio inspirals and further
our understanding of the two-body problem in General Relativity. This is d
one in synergy with other well known modeling techniques such as post-Newt
onian theory and numerical relativity. The canonical example of an extreme
mass-ratio Inspiral (EMRI) is the inspiral of a stellar-mass compact obje
ct into a supermassive black hole. Gravitational waves from these systems
are a promising target for the future space-based detector LISA\, which is
currently scheduled to launch in 2032 by the European Space Agency with N
ASA. The study of radiation reaction and self force is not limited to EMRI
s\, and a range of topics and applications to other areas of gravitational
physics have been discussed at past Capra meetings\; an example is the sc
attering of massive particles\, which is currently of active interest. The
format of the meeting will be an amalgamation of short contributed talks\
, (organized) discussion sessions and a daily invited review talk. Given t
he current pandemic\, the conference will take place online. Following the
Capra tradition\, there will be no registration fee.\n\nAn approximate sc

DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Alexander Smith (Dartmouth College & Saint Anselm Co
llege)\, Flaminia Giacomini (Perimeter Institute)\, Lucien Hardy (Perimete
r Institute)\, Achim Kempf (University of Waterloo)\nWhatever the final th
eory of quantum gravity turns out to be\, it will need to reconcile the in
congruent ways in which time appears in quantum mechanics and general rela
tivity. Quantum mechanics treats time as a classical background parameter\
, which is different than the way other observables\, such as position and
momentum\, are treated. In stark contrast\, general relativity promotes t
ime to a dynamical quantity in the sense that Einstein’s equations relat
e how clocks behave in relative motion or differing gravitational fields.
The aim of this conference\, geared at graduate students and above\, is to
discuss the full consequences of treating time as a quantum phenomena in
light of the recent progress on information-theoretic and operational desc
riptions of time as quantum observable. Topics discussed will include inde
finite causal structures\, the Page-Wootters formalism\, relational quantu
m mechanics\, quantum reference frames\, the problem of time\, and experim
ental implications.\n\n\n \n \n EDT\n Mon\n Tues\n Wed\n Thurs\
