Universal contributions to the entanglement entropy of CFTs
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Monday 12 September 2016
from 13:15 to 14:15
at 132:028
Speaker : Pablo Bueno (KU Leuven)
Abstract : I will review some recent (and some imminent) results on the structure of universal terms in the entanglement entropy (EE) of CFTs (mainly in 2+1 dimensions). My main focus will be on regions with corner singularities, for which I will discuss some general results including their close relation with the stress tensor two-point function, extensions to higher-dimensions, Rényi entropies as well as some open puzzles. Finally, I will present some results for the case in which the spatial dimensions form a torus and the entangling region is a cylinder wrapping one of its cycles.
