Understanding quantum gravity has been a constant desire of modern theoretical physics. More recently, the theory of quantum information has been shown to effectively unveil some of its structure. I will utilize quantum error correcting structures emerging in the context of AdS/CFT and build a framework to probe quantum gravity. Exploiting relative entropies and entanglement from algebraic and geometric perspective of space time theories, I will build toy models of holographic theories. This will give rise to understanding both state-dependent and independent aspects of quantum gravity.

About Physics Seminars

The weekly Physics Seminar series focuses on a broad range of physics research within SMP, along with frequent presentations from visiting researchers. Seminars are usually scheduled for 1.00pm on Tuesdays.

The talks are typically more specialised than a colloquium but are often attended by staff and PhD students across a broad range of areas. Speakers are thus encouraged to include introductory material in the talks.

All SMP researchers and HDR students are encouraged to speak. Please email Lewis Williamson to register your interest.

The seminars are open so there is no need to register your attendance.
