"Holographic symplectic forms and a CFT prescription to compute extremal volumes" by Alex Belin (University of Amsterdam)

Date: 
Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Series: 
TEP Seminar

Abstract: In this talk, I will present a new entry in the AdS/CFT dictionary: the bulk symplectic form between nearby semi-classical geometries is dual to a quantum Kahler form on the space of CFT sources. I will derive this relation and discuss one particular application of it: a CFT prescription to compute extremal volumes in the bulk. This talk will be based on Arxiv:1806.10144 as well as work in progress.
