ICMT Seminar: "Diffusion and Chaos in Holographic Quantum Matter"

Speaker Michael Blake, MIT
Date: 5/1/2017
Time: 12 p.m.

190 ESB


Institute for Condensed Matter Physics

Event Type: Seminar/Symposium

In this talk I will discuss recent developments that have suggested new connections between the transport properties of strongly interacting matter and the field of quantum chaos. In particular I will describe how in many holographic theories there are simple relationships between the thermoelectric diffusion constants and the butterfly velocity, which describes the speed at which quantum chaos propagates.
