Large N Phase Transitions and Small AdS-Schwarzschild Black Holes

Speaker: Sudip Ghosh

Abstract: We will discuss aspects of small AdS-Schwarzschild Black Holes in the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence. In particular we will consider issues related to dynamical instabilities of small black holes and their dual interpretation in the boundary gauge theory at large N.

Join the zoom session by OIST PhD Student, Florian Lalande! 51-Pegasi B is the name of the first exoplanet discovered in 1995, located 50 light years away from Earth. The Classical Age of planetary science was therefore brought to an end. Since then, the search for exoplanets has intensified. We know today more than 4,200 planets orbiting other star than our Sun.

Title: Extended TQFT

Abstract: This talk is the continuation of my TQFT discussion from last week. I am going to discuss the extended TQFT as an open-closed strings following the nice paper by Aaron D. Lauda, Hendryk Pfeiffer  "Open-closed strings: Two-dimensional extended TQFTs and Frobenius algebras". After that I am going to discuss 2-categories approach and compare it with asymptotic symmetries and edge modes.

Title: Strings from Massive Higher Spins: The Asymptotic Uniqueness of the Veneziano Amplitude

Abstract: We are going to discuss the recent paper by Simon Caron-Huot, Zohar Komargodski, Amit Sever and Alexander Zhiboedov  "Strings from Massive Higher Spins: The Asymptotic Uniqueness of the Veneziano Amplitude". Dorian Weissman will be leading the discussion.

Title : TQFT and Asymptotic symmetries

Speaker: Vyacheslav  Lysov

Abstract: I will provide an introduction to topological quantum field theories (TQFT) and their generalization - Extended TQFT. Using the TQFT framework I am going to discuss the behaviour of Hilbert spaces, associated to the  boundary components, under the gluing.
