The international seminar on asymptotic safety was founded in spring 2011, with the intention of bringing the asymptotic-safety community together, and providing a platform for talks on asymptotic safety in and beyond quantum gravity, as well as related topics in quantum gravity and quantum field theory.

Upcoming seminars

Thomas Thiemann and Renata Ferrero: Asymptotically safe – canonical quantum gravity junction

Seminar Date:

The asymptotically safe (ASQG) and the canonical (CQG) approach to quantum gravity share to be both non-perturbative programmes. However, apart from that they have been developed to a large extent independently of each other. Our aim is to overcome actual differences, to explain why apparent differences are actually...

Benjamin Knorr: Unearthing the intersections: positivity bounds, weak gravity conjecture, and asymptotic safety landscapes from photon-graviton flows

Seminar Date:

We compute the asymptotic safety landscape stemming from ultraviolet-complete photon-graviton flows in a field theoretic setup, and we confront it with the weak gravity conjecture and, for the first time, with positivity bounds. At fourth order in derivatives, we find two gravitational fixed points providing viable ...
