MCTP HET BROWN BAG SEMINAR<br>RG Flows, Entanglement, and Holography Workshop

Monday, September 17, 2012

340 West Hall

There has been much recent interesting progress in understanding renormalization group (RG) flows of field theories via generalized c-theorems, holographic descriptions, and studies of entanglement entropy.

The purpose of this 5-day workshop is to bring together experts of these areas to communicate the most recent results, advance further developments, and initiate new collaborations.

The activities will include 4 talks per day and ample opportunity for discussion. The workshop will begin in the morning on Monday Sept 17 and end early afternoon on Friday Sept 21.
