Description

One of the striking features of QED is the appearance of infrared divergences in the presence of charged particles. We analyze the effect of infrared divergences in the derivation of soft photon theorems. The infrared pathologies may be very relevant for understanding the black hole information paradox, but also raise some questions about the consistency of the whole theory.
But if the schedule is too tight I wouldn't mind to cancel it.
