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.

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.
