Partial deconfinement and holographic black holes

Regular Seminar David Berenstein (UC Santa Barbara)

14:00 QMW
room G O Jones 610

I will describe simple models of holography that can display some of the thermodynamics associated to small black holes. These phenomena include negative specific heat and localization on additional dimensions of the geometry. I will also explain how the dynamics of these states should naturally be thought of as partial deconfinement on a submatrix set of degrees of freedom of the model.
