Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Higher spin holography and entanglement entropy

Presented by Prem Kumar, Swansea

21 March 2014 13:00 in CM221

We review certain features of thermodynamics of black holes
carrying higher spin charge in AdS_3. Motivated by a recent
proposal for computing the entanglement entropy (EE) of the dual CFT,
based on Wilson-lines in the higher spin black hole background, we
outline the calculation of EE within CFTs with chemical potential for
higher-spin charge. We report on a surprising and non-trivial agreement
between the CFT and dual gravity result.
