Limits of Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity

14.10.2021 14:00 - 15:00

Daniel Grumiller (TU Wien)

Some applications require non-Riemannian spacetimes, such as Carrollian or Galilean spacetimes. They describe, respectively, ultra- and non-relativistic limits of gravity.
In my talk I construct the Newton-Cartan version of two-dimensional dilaton gravity, which plays essentially the same role for Newton-Cartan gravity as generic dilaton gravity does for Riemann-Cartan gravity.
