Euclidean Wormholes and Holography

Regular Seminar Panos Betzios (Crete)

14:00 IC
room H503

In this talk I will discuss asymptotically AdS wormhole solutions in the context of holography. I will present how to compute correlation functions of local operators as well as non local observables such as correlation functions of Wilson loops on the distinct boundaries and I will discuss their behavior. Moreover, I will discuss the effect that multi-trace deformations have on such observables. From the computations mentioned we observe that the dual theory is expected to be described in terms of two interacting sectors coupled by a UV soft, non-local interaction. Finally, I will present a simple effective field theory construction that can explain the behaviors that we observe from these gravitational computations.
