Maths HEP Lunchtime Seminars: First law of Complexity and Operator Growth

Presented by Joan Simon, University of Edinburgh

6 December 2019 13:00 in CM101

After reviewing some of the developments leading part of the community to ask questions regarding how to quantify the growth of operators under time evolution and the notion of complexity, we will motivate the study of small variations in these magnitudes. We will use the equivalence of Hilbert spaces in the AdS/CFT correspondence in two directions. First, to compute quantum circuit complexity, comparing with holographic calculations, and second, to construct operators in the code subspace of large N theories closing an emergent Poincare algebra.
