A new perspective on holographic entanglement
This event is part of the HET Seminar Series.
Abstract: We will present a reformulation of the Ryu-Takayanagi holographic entanglement entropy formula which does not involve the areas of surfaces. The reformulation leads to a picture of entanglement entropy of boundary regions being carried by Planck-thickness "bit threads" in the bulk. We will argue that this picture resolves a number of conceptual difficulties surrounding the RT formula.
