Probing bulk via correlators

QMAP Seminar

Speaker: Veronika Hubeny, Stanford
Location: 512 PhysGeo
Start time: Tue, Oct 26 2004, 1:10PM

In the context of the AdS/CFT correspondence, we explore the information about bulk geometry that can be extracted from boundary CFT correlators. First, we review the argument that the CFT correlators contain distinct, albeit subtle, signals of the black hole singularity. We then discuss the collapsing black hole, via a simple toy model. Finally, we consider a big crunch, as well as a deSitter, cosmology embedded in AdS/CFT.
