Quatum Scattering Amplitueds for Classical Gravity




Introductory Remarks: Prof. Marek Karliner, School of Physics and Astronomy

Presentation of the “Academic Achievement” Scholarship by the Dothan Fund in memory of Professor Yossef Dothan to Mr. Grisha Zeltyn - Ph.D. Student



The first gravitational wave observation by LIGO in 2015 spurred a new wave of interest by theorists in the calculations needed for current and future observatories. Theorists proposed new approaches based on quantum scattering amplitudes. In intervening years, this subject has turned into a flourishing activity within the Amplitudes community. I will explain the motivation for these approaches. I also present some examples of the many new `classical from quantum' approaches, and some of the future challenges.
