Diffusion and chaos in holographic systems at non-zero density

Regular Seminar Richard Davison (Harvard)

14:00 IC
room H503

Recent work has uncovered relations between the rate at which chaotic behaviour spreads in strongly interacting quantum systems, and the diffusivities of certain processes in these systems. Focusing mainly on holographic examples, I will explore the extent to which these relations hold in states at non-zero density, where the diffusion of charge and energy are no longer independent processes.
