Research May Uncover Structure of Black Holes

Professor Ben Burrington

Research by Dr. Ben Burrington, Assistant Professor of  Physics and Astronomy, has been published in the prestigious Journal of High Energy Physics. Dr. Burrington co-authored “The OPE of bare twist operators in bosonic SN orbifold CFTs at large N” with Ian T. Jardine and Amanda W. Peet from the University of Toronto. 

Dr. Burrington says insights from their article on conformal field theory and string theory could be used to study the composition of black holes.
