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

Renata Ferrero: Geometrization of Renormalization Group Histories: a novel (A)dS/CFT emerging from Asymptotic Safety

Seminar Date:

We discuss the geometrization of entire evolution histories by means of a single, (d+1)-dimensional manifold furnished with a fixed (pseudo-) Riemannian structure. We propose a universal form of the higher-dimensional metric and discuss its properties. The non-degeneracy of the higher-dimensional metric is linked to...

Chiang-Mei Chen: Phase Structure of Quantum Improved Black Holes in Asymptotically Safe Gravity

Seminar Date:

In this talk, I will discuss the quantum improvement of black hole solutions in the context of asymptotic safety. We propose that the consistency of the first law of thermodynamics is the principle that should determine physically sensible scale identification, at least close to the horizon. The quantum effect provi...
