    Dr. Alvaro Veliz Osorio (University of the Witwatersrand)

    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:

    "Attractive holographic c-functions"

    to be presented by Dr. Alvaro Veliz Osorio (University of the Witwatersrand)

    Abstract: Using the attractor mechanism for extremal solutions in { cal N}=2 gauged supergravity, we construct a c-function that interpolates between the central charges of theories at ultraviolet and infrared conformal fixed points corresponding to anti-de Sitter geometries. The c-function we obtain is couched purely in terms of bulk quantities and connects two different dimensional CFTs at the stable conformal fixed points under the RG flow.

    Dates: Tuesday, 19th August 2014 - TODAY
    Venue: Frank Nabarro Lecture Theatre P216
    Time: 13.20 - 14.10

    I hope you shall all be able to attend,

    Yours sincerely,
