Analogue Gravity Phenomenology

Analogue Gravity Phenomenology is a set of contributions that disguise an unlimited diversity of components in physics, starting from floor wave propagation in fluids to nonlinear optics. The underlying universal point of these kind of subject matters, and consequently the focus and standpoint from which they're defined the following, is the try to enhance analogue types for gravitational platforms. the unique and major motivation of the sphere is the verification and learn of Hawking radiation from a horizon: the permitting characteristic is the prospect to generate horizons within the laboratory with quite a lot of actual structures that contain a stream of 1 style or one other. The years round 2010 and onwards witnessed a surprising surge of experimental task during this increasing box of study. although, construction an services in analogue gravity calls for the researcher to be built with a slightly large variety of information and pursuits. the purpose of this booklet is to carry the reader brand new with the most recent advancements and supply the elemental heritage required that allows you to savour the ambitions, problems, and luck tales within the box of analogue gravity.

Each bankruptcy of the ebook treats a special subject defined intimately by way of the most important specialists for every particular self-discipline. the 1st chapters supply an outline of black gap spacetimes and Hawking radiation earlier than relocating directly to describe the massive number of analogue spacetimes which have been proposed and are at the moment less than research. This introductory half is then through an in-depth description of what are at the moment the 3 such a lot promising analogue spacetime settings, particularly floor waves in flowing fluids, acoustic oscillations in Bose-Einstein condensates and electromagnetic waves in nonlinear optics. either concept and experimental endeavours are defined intimately. the ultimate chapters consult with different facets of analogue gravity past the examine of Hawking radiation, corresponding to Lorentz invariance violations and Brownian movement in curved spacetimes, ahead of concluding with a go back to the origins of the sector and an outline of the to be had observational proof for horizons in astrophysical black holes.
