Complexity, Holography & Quantum Field Theory
Speaker(s): Robert Myers
Abstract: I will describe some recent work studying proposals for computational complexity in holographic theories and in quantum field theories. In particular, I will discuss some interesting properties of the new gravitational observables and of complexity in the boundary theory.

Scanning the Horizon: Information, Holography and Gravity
Speaker(s): Robert Myers
Abstract: In science, we often see new advances and insights emerging from the intersection of different ideas coming from what appeared to be disconnected research areas. The theme of my seminar will be an ongoing collision between the three topics listed in my title which has been generating interesting new... read more

PIRSA:13110074  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Quantum quenches & holography
Speaker(s): Robert Myers
Abstract: We employ holographic techniques to study quantum quenches at finite temperature, where the quenches involve varying the coupling of the boundary theory to a relevant operator with an arbitrary conformal dimension. The evolution of the system is studied by evaluating the expectation value of... read more

Adventures in Superstrings
Speaker(s): Robert Myers
Abstract: Physics emerged from the twentieth century with two remarkably successful descriptions of nature which stand in striking contrast. Quantum mechanics describes the subatomic realm with intrinsic uncertainties and probabilities. On the other hand, Einstein's general relativity describe gravitational p... read more
