[Host: Bob Jones]
Is gravity a fundamental force? I will discuss a few scenarios in which gravity emerges from the dynamics of some underlying field theory. In holography (or AdS/CFT correspondence), Einstein's equations for the bulk gravity dual are linked to entanglement in the boundary field theory. In another example, the graviton emerges as a composite spin two massless particle in a scalar field theory.
