Stanford Institute for Theoretical Physics presents "Void formation in operator growth, quantum chaos and black hole evaporation"

Topic: 
Void formation in operator growth, quantum chaos and black hole evaporation
Monday, May 4, 2020 - 2:00pm
Venue: 
Zoom id: 165-492-015
Speaker: 
Professor Hong Liu (MIT)
Abstract / Description: 

I first introduce the concept of void formation in Heisenberg evolution of operators and provide support that it can be used to distinguish chaotic and integrable systems.

After a brief discussion of applications of void formation to entanglement growths and generation of multi-partite entanglement, I will explain how it can provide insights into evolution of black holes by considering some simple quantum mechanical toy models of black hole evaporation.
