De Sitter horizons and holographic bulk reconstruction (please email p.agarwal AT qmul.ac.uk for a link to the zoom meeting))

Regular Seminar Damian Galante (King's College)

14:00 QMW
room Zoom

Cosmological (or de Sitter) horizons behave qualitatively different to black hole horizons and this poses a challenging problem in the context of holography. In this talk, I will discuss a novel construction to probe de Sitter horizons using the usual tools of the AdS/CFT correspondence. I will further explore ongoing efforts to reconstruct the bulk metric in two dimensions from the dual quantum mechanical correlators in the boundary.
