Relativistic Corrections to Non-relativistic Effective Field Theories
Mohammad Hossein Namjoo, MIT
Event Type: Informal HEP Talk
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar
Description: Field theories in the non-relativistic limit are of interest in a wide range of physical situations. In this talk, I will introduce a systematic and self consistent way of taking the non-relativistic limit of a classical scalar field theory from which one can read off the leading order theory for the non-relativistic system as well as its relativistic corrections. I will then compare the results with other alternative approaches that already exist in the literature. Some possible applications of the formalism to cosmology will be briefly discussed.
