Centre for Particle Theory Colloquia: 'Holographic anatomy'
27 February 2007 16:15 in CLC 202
The holographic principle states that any $d+1$ dimensional quantum theory of gravity should have a description in terms of a $d$-dimensional quantum field theory without gravity. In this talk we discuss how holography is realized in string theory and how one extracts quantum field theory data from a gravitational solution. We illustrate our discussion with examples.
