Quantum entanglement of localized excited states at finite temperature

Regular Seminar Joan Simon (University of Edinburgh)

13:15 KCL
room G.01

Motivated by either condensed matter or quantum gravity holographic considerations, I will discuss some preliminary work on how to compute the time evolution in Renyi entropies in 2d CFTs in the large c limit for thermal states perturbed by localized primary operators. Time permitting, I will comment on the potential relation between this work and previous holographic calculations in the context of the EPR=ER conjecture.
