- Gravity and quantum field theory, AP.R
### Abstract

The semiclassical gravity or quantum field theory in curved spacetimes has been shown to be efficient to analyze quantum processes in energy scales below the Planck one, where quantum gravity degrees of freedom (whatever they are) are not excited. In this project we propose to investigate various quantum aspects around relativistic stars, black holes, and accelerated reference frames, ...

- Physics in curved spacetimes, AP.TEM
### Abstract

The search for the fundamental theory which describes Nature at the Planck scale still seems to be far from being accomplished. Notwithstanding, whatever this theory turns out to be, it should contain Quantum Field Theory in the low-energy limit. In the case that matter fields are under the influence of strong gravitational fields, the standard formalism should be extended to take into ...

- The issue of time in the context of quantum mechanics, BP.MS
### Abstract

"If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know." This is the answer given to Augustine of Hipona when asked about what is time. This is the answer given by many, 15 centuries later, but this cannot be the answer given by modern physicists, who do not spend a single day without talking of time. This question has a well-defined answer in the ...

- Unruh effect analog in condensed matter, BP.MS
### Abstract

Semiclassical gravity has provided some surprising predictions among which the Unruh effect is a very paradigmatic one. In this MSc project we aim to investigate analogs of the Unruh effect in condensed matter systems. (AU)

- Effects at the quantum-gravitational frontier, BP.DR
### 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 p...

- Analogue gravity in condensed matter systems and the Unruh effect, BP.IC
### Abstract

Semiclassical gravity has unveiled a number of quite surprising effects among which are the Hawking and Unruh ones. In this project, we intend to begin a comprehensive search for a condensed-matter analogue of the Unruh effect. (AU)

- Condensed matter analogs of the quantum vacuum gravitational awakening effect, BP.IC
### Abstract

Semiclassical gravity has unveiled some surprising effects as, e.g., Hawking radiation. In spite of its conceptual importance its impact to astrophysics is neglectable. More recently however, it was shown how the instability of relativistic stars can be treated in the context of Semiclassical Gravity, known as the vacuum awakening effect. In this project we intend to look for condensed...

- Motion of extended bodies in curved spacetimes: swimming and other possible effects, BP.MS
### Abstract

This Master's project aims at analyzing and possibly contributing to the topic of motion of extended bodies in curved spacetimes. Particularly, we are interested in the swimming effect in curved spacetimes, by which an articulated, free extended body can propel itself through empty space by performing ciclic deformations. Although this effect already appears in the context of Newtonian ...
