[0910.4677] Some new views on the low-energy side of gravity

Authors: Federico Piazza

Date: 26 Oct 2009

Abstract: Common wisdom associates all the unraveled and theoretically challenging aspects of gravity with its UV-completion. However, there appear to be few difficulties afflicting the effective framework for gravity already at low energy that are likely to be detached from the high-energy structure. Those include the black hole information paradox, the cosmological constant problem and the rather involved and fine tuned model building required to explain our cosmological observations. I review some directions of on-going research that aim to generalize and extend the low-energy framework for gravity.
