Probe Branes, time dependent couplings and thermallization in AdS/CFT
Speaker(s): Sumit Das
Abstract: We study time dependent couplings in conformal field theories using rotating probe branes in AdS X S spacetimes. We find that induced metrics on the brane worldvolumes develop horizons with characteristic Hawking temperatures even when there is no black hole in the bulk. This framework is used to obtain toy models for quantum quench.
