Oskar Klein Memorial Lecture 2014
The 2014 

Memorial Lecture 
Andrew Strominger Conformal Symmetry in the Sky Recent observations suggest the sky contains black holes whose horizons are spinning at nearly the speed of light. General relativity implies that the dynamics very near the horizon of such extreme black holes is governed by an enhanced infinitedimensional conformal symmetry  identical to the enhanced symmetry observed near the critical points of a variety of condensed matter systems. Potential observational consequences of this symmetry are explored. Thursday November 19 2014 at 15.15 in the Oskar Klein Auditorium, AlbaNova, Stockholm. 

The Oskar Klein Memorial Lectures are sponsored by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Committee for Physics and by Stockholm University.
