Conformal Field Theory (CFT) represents a class of quantum field theories that has profound applications across various physics domains, from critical phenomena in statistical mechanics to quantum…

## Past Events

Kinematically, massless particles in Lorentz-invariant theories are classified by a dimensionful "spin scale"ρ (2nd Casimir invariant) that characterizes helicity states' mixing under little group…

It has recently been shown that any Euclidean gravitational path integral satisfying a simple set of axioms defines type I von Neumann algebras of bulk observables acting on compact closed…

We introduce a framework for quantifying random matrix behavior of 2d CFTs and AdS_3 quantum gravity that is manifestly compatible with conformal and modular invariance.

The Ryu-Takayanagi (RT) formula is usually understood as computing an entropy in a dual boundary CFT.

The Hawking-Page phase transition in holography is associated with the emergence of new symmetries and dynamical properties of correlators.

In one of many worlds, we will either (i) discuss a way to minimally extend the traditional workhorse of machine learning, the linear model, by considering the quadratic model, an interacting…
