IAS title: Talk 14: 'Connection between Thermodynamics and Gravitational Dynamics'.
Abstract: Black hole thermodynamics indicates there exists some relation between gravity and thermodynamics. In this talk Prof Cai briefly summarizes three aspects of the connection between gravitational dynamics and thermodynamics by focusing on three kinds of spacetime horizon: local Rindler horizon of spacetime, black hole event horizon and apparent horizon in a Friedmann‐Robertson‐Walker (FRW) universe.
