The chaos bound in CFT_2 and higher spin holography

Triangular Seminar Prem Kumar (Swansea)

16:00 IC
room Huxley LT308

I will describe thermodynamics and calculation of real time correlators in CFTs with extended W-symmetries, dual to AdS_3 gravity with a finite number of higher spin fields. I will point out mechanisms, including the appearance of a novel effective temperature, by which the proposed chaos bound due to Maldacena-Shenker-Stanford is violated in these theories.
