1st of September “Dynamics of Fluids without Boost Symmetries” by Jelle Hartong

1st of September “Dynamics of Fluids without Boost Symmetries” by Jelle Hartong

Date : 1st of September 2020, 16:00 CET Jelle Hartong (University of Edinburgh) Link: https://zoom.us/j/96945024145?pwd=aHM4emtlWFJ0M2VBd1pCSmhtYVptdz09 Title: Dynamics of Fluids without Boost Symmetries Abstract: Standard textbook treatments of fluid dynamics assume the presence of a boost symmetry. This is either a Galilean boost symmetry or a Lorentzian one and leads to the Navier-Stokes equations or their relativistic counterpart. It is […]

8th of September “Diffusion in a magnetic field” by Danny Brattan

8th of September “Diffusion in a magnetic field” by Danny Brattan

Date : 8th of September 2020, 16:00 CET Danny Brattan (University of Genova) Link:  https://zoom.us/j/96945024145?pwd=aHM4emtlWFJ0M2VBd1pCSmhtYVptdz09 Title: Diffusion in a magnetic field Abstract:  Even with the simplifying assumption of non-dynamical (external) electromagnetic fields, magnetohydrodynamics is a technically subtle framework for understanding the long wavelength and low frequency regime of interacting theories. One of these technicalities is that for many […]

28th of July: ”Complexity and Conformal Field Theory” by Mario Flory

28th of July: ”Complexity and Conformal Field Theory” by Mario Flory

Date : 28th of July 2020, 16:00 CET Mario Flory (Jagiellonian University) Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82834697825?pwd=OUltMDJ5TWgwOVZUWmU2RzA1VmgxUT09 Title: Complexity and Conformal Field Theory Abstract: We study circuit and state complexity in the universal setting of (1+1)-dimensional conformal ​ field theory and unitary transformations generated by the stress-energy tensor. We provide a unifi​ed view of assigning a cost to circuits based on the […]

21th of July: ”Superluminal chaos after a quantum quench” by Kévin Nguyen

Date : 21th of July 2020, 16:00 CET Kévin Nguyen (Harvard) Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82834697825?pwd=OUltMDJ5TWgwOVZUWmU2RzA1VmgxUT09 Title: Superluminal chaos after a quantum quench Abstract: I will present a formula to compute out-of-time-order correlators (OTOC) in generic asymptotically AdS spacetimes, based on the geodesic approximation to bulk propagators and the exchange of gravitational shock waves. In contrast to the standard method of Shenker […]

14th of July: ”Coherent and incoherent transport in holographic models with spontaneously broken translations” by Alexander Krikun

14th of July: ”Coherent and incoherent transport in holographic models with spontaneously broken translations” by Alexander Krikun

Date : 14th of July 2020, 16:00 CET Alexander Krikun (Nordita) Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82834697825?pwd=OUltMDJ5TWgwOVZUWmU2RzA1VmgxUT09 Title: Coherent and incoherent transport in holographic models with spontaneously broken translations Abstract:  In holography it is relatively easy to construct the models which break translation symmetry either explicitly, or spontaneously, or both. AC transport in these models has a few interesting features, which were in […]

30th of June “Effective Field Theory for Chaotic CFTs” by Moshe Rozali

30th of June “Effective Field Theory for Chaotic CFTs” by Moshe Rozali

Date : 30th of June, 18:00 CET Link : https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82834697825?pwd=OUltMDJ5TWgwOVZUWmU2RzA1VmgxUT09 Speaker : Moshe Rozali (UBC Vancouver) Title: Effective Field Theory for Chaotic CFTs Abstract: Relations between chaos and hydrodynamics are one of the unique feature of holographic CFTs. The early time Lyapunov regime can described by an effective field theory of a single mode, which for maximally chaotic systems […]
