Group Meeting: Wilson Line Networks for Flat Space Holography

Ttile: Wilson Line Networks for Flat Space Holography

Abstract:  Several years ago, a technique in AdS/CFT was introduced which relates conformal correlation functions to Wilson networks in the bulk. The question arises whether this tool can be implemented in related models of holography. In my talk I will present the results of my master thesis, where I attempted to generalize the above-mentioned tool to what is so far known about flat space holography.
