Andreas Karch - UT Austin

I'll review the basic construction of Randall-Sundrum
braneworlds and some of their applications to formal problems in quantum
field theory. I will highlight some recent results regarding scenarios
with mismatched brane tensions. In the last part of the talk, I'll
review how RS branes have led to exciting new results regarding
evaporation of black holes and will put emphasis on the interesting role
the graviton mass plays in these discussions.
