Classical Double Copy: Solutions, Horizons, and Penrose Limits

Cindy Keeler

*,*Arizona State University*,*We will review the classical double copy, which maps exact solutions of classical gauge theories like electromagnetism, to solutions of general relativity. We will cover both the Kerr-Schild and Weyl formulations of this map. Following a survey of known exact solutions, we will review why a position-space classical solution double copy is even feasible. We will briefly discuss some perturbative approaches, and then close by relating several gravitational objects (including horizons and Penrose limits) to their gauge theory analogues.

The talk is in 469 Lauritsen.
