Abstract

The physics of black hole horizons is intimately connected to the physics of quantum liquids. In this talk I will review the connection and draw lessons about quantum turbulence from black hole dynamics and vice versa. For example, gravitational dynamics reveal that quantum turbulence can behave very differently from normal fluid turbulence in 2d, with long-wavelength excitations rapidly dissolving into small fluctuations and dissipating as in a 3d normal liquid. Meanwhile, familiar facts about turbulent flows in normal fluids imply that the horizons of certain accreting black holes evolve in time as if they have a non-trivial fractal dimension.
