TRIANGULAR SEMINAR: New techniques of large N and large D allow to study analytically planar matrix quantum mechanics at strong coupling in a reliable way. Using these techniques, we found a remarkable phase transition in these systems, which is very naturally interpreted as a quantum version of the phenomenon of black hole formation in a gravitational collapse.
Based on 1701.01171, 1707.03431, 1709.07366, 1710.07263 and work in progress.
