Holographic entanglement entropy for surface operators and defectsQMAP Seminar
|Speaker:||Michael Gutperle, Department of Physics and Astronomy, UCLA|
|Start time:||Thu, Apr 21 2016, 3:10PM|
We review the holographic description of surface operators and defects using bubbling supergravity solutions. The calculation of the Ryu-Takayanagi entanglement entropy in the presence of such operators is presented and comparisons to field theory results are presented.
