Special Event

Physics Group Meeting | Jennifer Lin, Member, School of Natural Sciences, IAS | "Algebraic EE and Holography”

Wed, Mar 29, 2017, 1:45 pm

In the first part of the talk, I’ll explore whether EE’s of subalgebras not organized by position space in a holographic CFT may be useful for bulk reconstruction. In particular I'll explain how the lengths of non-minimal geodesics in AdS3 conical defect backgrounds can be interpreted as the EE's of certain subalgebras in the dual CFT.

Physics Group Meeting | Bartek Czech, Member, School of Natural Sciences, IAS; Stanford University | “Kinematic Space and Applications”

Wed, Mar 15, 2017, 1:45 pm

I will discuss kinematic space--the space of pairs of points in a CFT. Basic objects living in kinematic space are OPE blocks--contributions to the OPE from a single conformal family. In holographic theories, OPE blocks are dual at leading order in 1/N to integrals of effective bulk fields along geodesics or homogeneous minimal surfaces in AdS...

Physics Group Meeting | David Simmons-Duffin, School of Natural Sciences, IAS | “The Lightcone Bootstrap and the Spectrum of the 3d Ising CFT"

Wed, Feb 1, 2017, 1:45 pm

I will review the lightcone bootstrap and explain how it can be used to describe analytically some new numerical results for the 3dIsing CFT.

Special Event - Physics Recital

Fri, Apr 15, 2016, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


Math Physics Seminar, Jeffrey Schenker, Michigan State, "Localization in the disordered Holstein model"

Tue, Mar 8, 2016, 4:30 pm to 5:30 pm
The Holstein model (in the one particle sector) describes a lattice particle interacting with independent Harmonic oscillators at each site of the lattice. We consider this model with on site disorder in the particle potential. This is proposed a simple model in which it may be possible to test some ideas regarding multi/many-body localization.
