DESCRIPTION:"Gravity as an Entropic Force"\nLast year Erik Verlinde's paper
"On the Origin of Gravity and the Laws of Newton" generated a flurry of i
nterest in the idea that gravity may not be a fundamental force of nature\
, but rather a "fictitious force" which exists only once one has "coarse-g
rained out" microscopic degrees of freedom. He proceeds to give a heuristi
c derivation of Newton's second law and the equation for gravitational for
ce starting from the holographic principle. In this talk\, I will give an
introductory review of this paper and also discuss some criticisms raised
against it.\nRefreshments will be served at 2:45 in SES 2214

X-ALT-DESC;FMTTYPE=text/html:"Gravity as an Entropic Force"

\nLast yea
r Erik Verlinde's paper "On the Origin of Gravity and the Laws of Newton"
generated a flurry of interest in the idea that gravity may not be a funda
mental force of nature\, but rather a "fictitious force" which exists only
once one has "coarse-grained out" microscopic degrees of freedom. He proc
eeds to give a heuristic derivation of Newton's second law and the equatio
n for gravitational force starting from the holographic principle. In this
talk\, I will give an introductory review of this paper and also discuss
some criticisms raised against it.
