Title: Existence of apparent horizon and size of extra dimensions.

Abstract: In 1972, Kip Thorne conjectured a formation of a black hole due to an inequality between the mass of a bounded region and its size. In this talk, I review some recent results regarding this conjecture and its application to the size of the geometry of extra dimensions.

Bio: Aghil Alaee is a mathematician working on geometric analysis and mathematical general relativity. Currently, he is an assistant professor at the Department of Mathematics at Clark University. Before that, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the CMSA, Harvard University, University of Toronto, and the University of Alberta.
