ITMP Seminar "Love and Naturalness"

ITMP Seminar
31 October 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Nov 3, at 18:00 (Moscow time). It will be arranged via zoom.


Speaker: Dr. Mikhail Ivanov, Princeton IAS & INR RAS

Title: Love and Naturalness

Abstract: Tidal Love numbers of a compact body capture multipole moments induced by external gravitational fields. Also they appear as Wilson coefficients in the post-Newtonian effective field theory of extended objects. It has been known for a decade that Love numbers vanish identically for black holes in four dimensions, which posed a major naturalness problem in the EFT context. In my talk, I will present a new hidden (“Love”) symmetry of black holes, which elegantly resolves this naturalness paradox.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 14:00, November 3 here.
