Abstract

Nowadays the quantum-gravitational frontier is home to some of the most relevant problems in fundamental theoretical physics. A myriad of breakthroughs made in the last couple of decades allowed us to pose better questions in analogue systems of gravity and a better comprehension of the semi-classical scaffold as the most well-founded way of studying such frontier. In this project, we propose to investigate this interface, broadening and refining our comprehension of its phenomena, such as the vacuum-awakening effect, decoherence in curved space-times and back-reaction effects of quantum fields in classical space-times.
