BREMEN-OLDENBURG RELATIVITY SEMINAR
University of Oldenburg
|When:||30. November 2018 |
|Speaker:||Prof. Anton Galajinsky (Tomsk Polytechnic University, Russia)|
|Title:||Eisenhart lift and its applications|
Abstract: The Eisenhart lift is a specific geometrization of the Newtonian mechanics in which a dynamical system with N degrees of freedom is embedded into the null geodesics of a Lorentzian metric in (N+2)–dimensional spacetime. In this talk, we review Eisenhart’s construction and discuss its applications to spacetimes with hidden symmetries, higher derivative theories, and cosmology.
