# Upcoming Events

String stars, or Horowitz-Polchinski solutions, are string theory saddles with normalizable condensates of thermal-winding strings.

I will introduce a critical string theory in two dimensions and explain that this theory, viewed as two-dimensional quantum gravity on the worldsheet, admits an equivalent holographic description…

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…

I will discuss the quantization of one of the simplest theories of gravity, three-dimensional Einstein gravity with negative cosmological constant.

The averaged null energy operator is known to be closely tied to causality, quantum information, and the Regge limit of correlation functions in CFT.
