"Non-linear gravity from CFT entanglement" by Eliot Hijano (University of British Columbia)

Date: 
Tuesday, January 16, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Series: 
TEP Seminar

I will describe a unifying framework for three related results. I will first explain the emergence of non-linear gravitational dynamics from the entanglement structure of a conformal field theory. I'll then discuss the related issue of finding the correct prescription for computing holographic entanglement entropy in theories of higher curvature gravity. Finally, I will describe the correspondence between CFT relative entropy and gravitational canonical energy.
