HET Seminar | Gustavo Joaquin Turiaci, Princeton University | "Schwarzian Quantum Mechanics and the Bootstrap"

Mon, May 15, 2017, 2:30 pm

The Schwarzian theory was proposed by A. Kitaev as a low energy effective theory for quantum mechanical systems presenting holographic behavior, beginning with the SYK model. In this talk we will study the Schwarzian theory as a limit of two dimensional Liouville theory. By using results of the conformal bootstrap of Liouville theory we will obtain the exact partition function and correlation functions of the Schwarzian theory. We will also discuss the out-of-time-ordered four-point function by using its monodromy from a 2d perspective.
