The first invited talk for a member of CITR was delivered on Tuesday 28 June 2016 at an international conference in Warsaw, Poland.
The event, entitled “Singularities of general relativity and their quantum fate” was held at the Institute for Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and ran from the 27 to the 30 June 2016.
Simone presented his work on the application of affine coherent states to the investigation of black hole and cosmological singularities.
