Entanglement entropy in excited states
  OKC/Nordita High-Energy Physics Theory seminar

Monday 12 December 2016
from 13:15 to 14:15
at Nordita East ( 132:028 )
Speaker : Simon Gentle (Leiden/Utrecht)
Abstract : The Ryu-Takayanagi formula and its covariant generalisation provide a holographic geometrisation of quantum entanglement. Whilst this connection has been studied intensively, much of the discussion has restricted to the vacuum state or a thermal ensemble. In this talk I will study entanglement entropy in excited states. In particular, I will focus on half-BPS states of maximally supersymmetric Yang-Mills theory holographically dual to the regular bubbling solutions of Lin, Lunin and Maldacena.
