Theory Seminar

Quantum Gravity from Conformal Field Theory

by James Drummond

Monday, 29 April 2019 from to (Europe/Berlin)
at MPI Meeting rooms ( 313 )
Description
I will describe a method for constructing loop corrections to AdS supergravity by demanding consistency with the operator product expansion of its conformal field theory dual. As part of the analysis we obtain simple formulas for the corrections to the masses of two-particle bound states corresponding to double-trace operators.
