Three dimensional view of the SYK/AdS duality

We show that the spectrum of the SYK model can be interpreted as that of a 3D scalar coupled to gravity. The scalar has a mass which is at the Breitenholer-Freedman bound of AdS2, and subject to a delta function potential at the center of the interval along the third direction. This, through Kaluza-Klein procedure on AdS2 × (S 1)/Z 2, generates the spectrum reproducing the bi-local ...

Holographic entanglement entropy of a 1 + 1 dimensional p-wave superconductor

We examine the behavior of entanglement entropy S A EE of a subsystem A in a fully backreacted holographic model of a 1 + 1 dimensional p wave superconductor across the phase transition. For a given temperature, the system goes to a superconducting phase beyond a critical value of the charge density. The entanglement entropy, considered as a function of the charge density at a ...

Old and new scaling laws in quantum quench

The response of a many-body system to a time-dependent coupling which passes through or approaches a critical point displays universal scaling behavior. In some regimes, scaling laws have been known since the 1970s. Recently, holographic techniques have been used to understand the origins of such scaling. Along the way, new scaling behaviors in other regimes have been found in ...

Quantum quenches in free field theory: universal scaling at any rate

Quantum quenches display universal scaling in several regimes. For quenches which start from a gapped phase and cross a critical point, with a rate slow compared to the initial gap, many systems obey Kibble-Zurek scaling. More recently, a different scaling behaviour has been shown to occur when the quench rate is fast compared to all other physical scales, but still slow compared ...

Kibble-Zurek scaling in holographic quantum quench: backreaction

We study gauge and gravity backreaction in a holographic model of quantum quench across a superfluid critical transition. The model involves a complex scalar field coupled to a gauge and gravity field in the bulk. In earlier work (arXiv:1211.7076) the scalar field had a strong self-coupling, in which case the backreaction on both the metric and the gauge field can be ignored. In ...

Smooth and fast versus instantaneous quenches in quantum field theory

We examine in detail the relationship between smooth fast quantum quenches, characterized by a time scale δt, and instantaneous quenches, within the framework of exactly solvable mass quenches in free scalar field theory. Our earlier studies [1, 2] highlighted that the two protocols remain distinct in the limit δt → 0 because of the relation of the quench rate to the UV cut-off, ...

Universality in fast quantum quenches

We expand on the investigation of the universal scaling properties in the early time behaviour of fast but smooth quantum quenches in a general d-dimensional conformal field theory deformed by a relevant operator of dimension Δ with a time-dependent coupling. The quench consists of changing the coupling from an initial constant value λ 1 by an amount of the order of δλ to some ...

dS/CFT at uniform energy density and a de Sitter “bluewall”

We describe a class of spacetimes that are asymptotically de Sitter in the Poincare slicing. Assuming that a dS/CFT correspondence exists, we argue that these are gravity duals to a CFT on a circle leading to uniform energy-momentum density, and are equivalent to an analytic continuation of the Euclidean AdS black brane. These are solutions with a complex parameter which then gives ...
