MCTP HET BROWN BAG SEMINAR | RG Flow of Entanglement Entropy

Wednesday, February 4, 2015
12:00 AM
3481 Randall Lab

Using the techniques of Entanglement Entropy, I will discuss recent progress in understanding of RG flows in QFT. A number of simple examples will be presented and analyzed. A special emphasis will be made on curved manifolds, the role of contact terms and open problems.

Michael Smolkin (Berkeley)
