The Schwarzian and black hole physics

14.03.2018 14:00 – 15:00

In this talk, I will discuss the Schwarzian theory (relevant for low-energy SYK physics and Jackiw-Teitelboim gravity) from a 2d perspective. I will demonstrate how Schwarzian quantum mechanics is naturally embedded in 2d Liouville CFT. This perspective allows a direct computation of Schwarzian two- and four-point functions. Out-of-time ordered (OTO) four-point functions are also determined using the 2d R-matrix. The semi-classical limit of these expressions demonstrate various aspects of black holes, such as quasi-normal modes and eikonal shockwave expressions in the holographic bulk. In the end, I briefly discuss some generalizations to other theories.
Mostly based on arXiv:1705.08408.
