Spacetime as a resource

Regular Seminar Joan Simon (U. of Edinburgh)

room G O Jones 610

The relation between black holes and thermodynamics leading to the holographic principle is well known. Formulating thermodynamics as the theory of transformations performing some work or task allows us to reinterpret recent developments in AdS/CFT, such as the holographic description of entanglement entropy, as a measure of the connectivity of space (resource). Whether spacetime in the interior of a black hole also allows an understanding as a resource is an interesting open question.
