A Hike through the Swampland

03/17/2022 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Abstract: The Swampland program aims at uncovering the universal implications of quantum gravity at low-energy physics. I will review the basic ideas of the Swampland program, formal and phenomenological implications, and provide a survey of the techniques commonly used in Swampland research including tools from quantum information, holography, supersymmetry, and string theory.
