Asymptotics of the eprl model on arbitrary vertices
Speaker(s): Simone Speziale
Abstract:

We introduce a new technique to study the critical point equations of the eprl model. We show that it correctly reproduces the 4-simplex asymptotics, and how to apply it to an arbitrary vertex. We find that for general vertices, the asymptotics can be linked to a Regge action for polytopes, but contain also more general geometries, called conformal twisted geometries. We present explicit examples including the hypercube, and discuss implications.
