    WITS Node Seminar: Prof. Antal Jevicki (Brown University)



    The National Institute for Theoretical Physics, and the Centre for Theoretical Physics, School of Physics, would like to invite to its coming talk in the theoretical physics seminar series, entitled:

    "Holography in Higher Spin AdS/CFT Correspondence"

    to be presented by Prof. Antal Jevicki (Brown University)

    Abstract: We review the bi-local picture constituting the basis of O(N) vector model/Higher Spin Gravity Duality. In this framework the origin of emergent (AdS) dimension is discussed together with the construction of bulk observables in the theory. Some recent calculations relating to thermodynamics will be presented.

    Date: Tuesday, 4th March 2014
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10
