Title: Pole skipping and related probes away from maximal chaos

Abstract: Quantum chaotic dynamics is associated to diverse physical phenomena and signatures. In this talk, we focus on the pole skipping phenomenon in non-maximally chaotic theories. Our discussion is informed by results from AdS/CFT and from models of SYK type. We study the interplay of the pole skipping phenomenon with the quantum butterfly effect and thermalization through the lens of entanglement entropy.
