Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: The superfluid universality class of large charge operators

Presented by Anton de la Fuente, EPFL

22 March 2019 13:00 in CM101

Large charge operators in a conformal field theory can be studied using superfluids. We review this connection and analyze the effect of adding vortices to the superfluid. We also verify a nontrivial numerical prediction using a large N model. We end with some comments on the holographic interpretation of large charge operators.
