Ross, Simon F. (2019). Complexity and typical microstates. Physical Review D 100(6): 066014.

Author(s) from Durham


Typical black hole microstates in AdS=CFT were recently conjectured to have a geometrical dual with a
smooth horizon and a portion of a second asymptotic region. I consider the application of the holographic
complexity conjectures to this geometry. The holographic calculation leads to divergent values for the
complexity; I argue that this classical divergence is consistent with expectations for typical microstates.
