ITMP Seminar "Thermal correlators in CFT and black holes"

ITMP Seminar
11 May 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, May 12, at 18:00 (Moscow time). The seminar will be arranged via Zoom.


Speaker: prof. Jorge Guillermo Russo, Catalan Institution for Research and Advanced Studies and University of Barcelona, Barcelona

Title: Thermal correlators in CFT and black holes

Abstract: We describe the computation of thermal 2-point correlation functions in the black brane AdS5 background dual to 4d CFT's at finite temperature for operators of large scaling dimension. This gives rise to a formula that matches the expected structure from the OPE. The thermal 2-point function has an exponentiation property, whose origin we explain. We also compute the first correction to the two-point function due to graviton emission, which encodes the time travel to the black hole singularity.

We will also discuss some interesting features of higher-point functions.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 14:00, May 12.
