ITMP Seminar "Holographic correlators and emergent Parisi-Sourlas supersymmetry"

ITMP Seminar
11 февраля 2021

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the next ITMP seminar will be held on Wednesday, Feb 17, at 18:00 (Moscow time). The seminar will be arranged via Zoom. 


Speaker: Xinan Zhou, Princeton University

Title: Holographic correlators and emergent Parisi-Sourlas supersymmetry

Abstract: In this talk, I will first review the recent progress in computing holographic four-point correlators in maximally supersymmetric CFTs. I will introduce the so-called Maximally R-symmetry Violating (MRV) limit, in which the Mellin amplitudes drastically simplify and become easy to compute. From the MRV limit, I will show that the full amplitudes can be reconstructed by using symmetries. This gives a complete answer to all tree-level four-point functions in all three maximally supersymmetric backgrounds AdS4xS7, AdS5xS5, and AdS7xS4. In the second part of my talk, I will point out that these results have surprising properties. The Mellin amplitudes exhibit an emergent dimensional reduction structure, which allows them to be expressed in terms of only scalar exchange amplitudes from lower dimensional spacetimes. I will explain that this dimensional reduction structure is closely related to a holographic realization of the Parisi-Sourlas supersymmetry.


If you want to join the seminar please register here before 15:00, February 17.
