Damian Galante (Zoom) - De Sitter horizons and holographic bulk reconstruction

When: Thursday, April 23, 2020, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Where: Zoom, Zoom

Speaker: Damian Galante

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.
