CPT Student Seminar: Two Approaches to Quantum Quenches

Presented by Vaios Ziogas, Durham University

1 December 2014 17:00 in OC218

In this talk, we will introduce the concept of entanglement entropy and the basic techniques involved in its computation under a global quantum quench, focusing mainly on (1+1)d CFTs. Then, we will see how we can use the AdS/CFT correspondence to descibe similar processes from a gravitational perspective.

A gathering of mathematicians from the CPT group with physicists from IPPP, we meet to discuss our work in a relaxed and friendly environment.
