ITMP Seminar "Large N Partition Functions, Holography, and Black Holes"

ITMP Seminar
14 November 2023

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Nov 15, 18:00 (Moscow time). It will be organised via Zoom.

Speaker: Prof. Nikolay Bobev, KU Leuven

Title: Large N Partition Functions, Holography, and Black Holes

Abstract: I will discuss the large N behavior of partition functions of the ABJM theory on compact Euclidean manifolds. I will pay particular attention to the S3 free energy and the topologically twisted index for which I will present closed form expressions valid to all orders in the large N expansion. These results have important implications for holography and the microscopic entropy counting of AdS_4 black holes which I will discuss. I will also briefly discuss generalizations of these results to the superconformal index, as well as to other 3d SCFTs arising from M2-branes. Finally, I will outline how this approach can be used to calculate thermal holographic observables beyond the leading order supergravity approximation.

If you want to join the seminar please register here before 16:00, November 15 here.
