Locality in Causal Sets

Dec 16
Group Seminar
1:30 pm o'clock to 2:30 pm o'clock
Lisa Glaser (Nils Bohr Institute)
SR 02.729

Causal Sets are fundamentally discrete and Lorentzian at the same time. This gives rise to a certain type of non-locality that has makes it difficult to connect results from causal set theory to physical reality. In recent work Sumati Surya and I proposed the abundance of intervals as a quantity that encodes a lot of information about the causal set and can help to define locality. In this talk I will give a short introduction into causal set theory and introduce the abundance of intervals. The analytic results are augmented with data from simulation.
