Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: Diffusion and Chaos in Quantum Matter
13 October 2017 13:00 in CM221
In this talk I will discuss recent developments that have suggested new connections between the transport properties of quantum matter and many-body chaos. In particular I will describe how in many holographic theories there are simple relationships between the thermoelectric diffusion constants and the butterfly velocity, which describes the speed at which chaos propagates.
