The objectives of the research in theoretical physics presented in this video are to understand the fundamental physics behind the properties of black holes and to find out whether black holes are unique in their way of information-processing. As GIA DVALI explains, the research he developed together with CESAR GOMEZ has two important findings. Firstly it shows that quantum criticality is the basic principle of the information storage capacities of black holes and secondly it manifests that other systems of nature can process information the same way. This has important implications for the understanding of elementary particles and for cosmology.


Gia Dvali is Director of the Max Planck Institute for Physics as well as Professor of Physics at Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich and at New York University's Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics. Former affiliations include the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland and the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. His major research interests are theoretical particle physics and quantum gravity. Dvali is a recipient of the David and Lucile Packard Foundation's Packard Fellowship, the Alfred P. Sloan foundation fellowship and Humboldt Professorship (2008).


Max Planck Society

"The Max Planck Society is Germany's most successful research organization. Since its establishment in 1948, no fewer than 18 Nobel laureates have emerged from the ranks of its scientists, putting it on a par with the best and most prestigious research institutions worldwide. The more than 15,000 publications each year in internationally renowned scientific journals are proof of the outstanding research work conducted at Max Planck Institutes – and many of those articles are among the most-cited publications in the relevant field."
