Overview of Holographic Entanglement Entropy via Illustrations

Speaker: Shaun Maguire
Location: East Bridge 114

Abstract: This talk will provide an informal overview of holographic entanglement entropy, geared towards the IQIM audience. The talk will provide a survey of some of the generalizations of Ryu and Takayanagi's original conjecture, such as the covariant proposal put forth by Hubeny, Rangamani and Takayanagi, which is necessary to understand entanglement in time-dependent settings, such as during quenches. The talk will also discuss recent work related to understanding multipartite entanglement holographically.
